The slogan "Ulyanovsk Region — the Innovative, Production, and Logistics Center in the Fast-Developing Volga Federal District" became the main topic this year. The event is held under the patronage of Igor Komarov, Plenipotentiary Representative of the President of the Russian Federation in the Volga Federal District.
