Celebrate autumn at IMG Show Pre-party with benefit for your brain and soul
IMG Show is useful, beautiful and delicious
Only a few days are left before the welcome IMG Show Pre-Party party that will be held on September 14th on the 58th floor of "Empire" Tower of Moscow City. One of the newest venues of Moscow will offer its guests a unique cultural and educational program, a networking cocktail, surprises from ABT-ACTE Russia and, of course, beautiful views of Moscow.
The event will take place at one of the newest venues of Moscow - on the 58th floor of Empire tower of Moscow City. There are panoramic windows, a lot of air and light, it is just nice to be there, and of course, the food is great.
The venue in Empire tower is the Laboratory of the future, this is why we have come to the conclusion that it is an ideal place to tell everyone about what awaits IMG Show participants. This time not only we, but the venue itself will prepare surprises for the guests: organizers of this cultural and educational platform, who also run the scientific and creative residence Tchekhov APi believe that the best rest is the time spent to the benefit of your brain and soul, so you can fully rely on them in the questions of educational content development. Of course, the entertainment part will also take a rightful place in the event schedule.
We invite to Pre-party those who register at the website www.imgshow.ru not later than September 10th: professional buyers and agencies. Participation will also be available to a limited number of exhibitors.
And of course, apart from Pre-party, many other new and pleasant events are planned by ABT-ACTE Russia in terms of IMG Show preparation!
We sincerely believe that business events should be not only useful, but also pleasant. Our partners and guests devote a considerable part of their life to work, and of course, we want our work to bring us joy. Therefore, we always try to create an atmosphere people are glad to find themselves in, to invite them to places we are willing to return to ourselves.
This year we discovered a new venue - Loft Hall in Leninskaya Sloboda street in Moscow. We liked absolutely everything here, starting from its location: "For the past few years Leninskaya Sloboda street where the Loft Hall is located has gained a look of an ultra fashionable quarter of a European capital - you notice it already on the way to the venue. The Loft Hall itself, I would say, is a concentrated continuation of this impression", chief customer officer of ABT-ACTE Russia Nikolay Tsaplin says. It is cosy inside: dimpled brick walls, large windows, a view of the river and a huge fireplace that will come in very useful on an October evening. The representatives of the Loft Hall mention in their materials that when they were developing their project, they took into account not only special aspects of Russian history and architecture but also the needs of modern customers who "are tired of same-looking halls". "The main thing about any idea is what it may change in our conscience", the representatives of the company say. It was proved by personal experience that it was possible to achieve this goal - after visiting the Loft Hall, Nikolay changed his point of view on his own home interior: "It was evident that the owners did not save on a designer and exclusive hand-made furniture, and I would not refuse to have some interior elements in my home, of course. One chest of drawers has sunk so deep into my mind, that I have started saving money to buy a similar one!", he admits.
The cuisine of the Loft Hall also helps you attain harmony with yourself and the world around you. We also believe that fancy canapes served on wooden plates, a duck salad with raspberry dressing, a pine bolete julienne in a bag of a crispy pancake and mussels with tomato concasse is the best way to enhance business relations between our partners, providers and customers.
And in order to make you feel very well, before dinner all the guests will have an opportunity to freshen their make-up with the help of Estee Lauder make-up designers.

Intellectual art warm-up
Aleksey Pashkov, historian, author of courses on the history of art
We will “warm up the brain” and solve several picturesque riddles. To start with, we will try to get into Surikov`s creative lab: we will have to guess, what impressions – sometimes absolutely occasional ones – induced ideas of his pictures. Then we will rack our brains on Vasnetsov`s frise “Stone age” and look for historic mistakes in it.
By the way, as for historic mistakes, there are enough of them in Bryullov`s Last Day of Pompeii. So Bryullov will have a lot to bear, too.
Then we will rack our brain on the meaning of Moscow Courtyard by Polenov: this painting is not so simple as it may seem, as well.
And finally, we will solve several riddles about Russian rulers who played the key role in the destiny of Moscow. It will be interesting and informative!
Moderator: Mila Sidorina, Marketing director of Vipservice
