NEW YORK, NY - The Mid-Atlantic - Russia Business Council (MARBC) is pleased to announce that it will be organizing the Russian – American Conference and Exhibition on June 28 in conjunction with the Corporate and Channel Computing Expo (C3 EXPO) being held from June 27 – 29, 2006 at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center in New York City, NY. The program, which is being organized by MARBC and sponsored by EPAM and the international law firm of Fox Horan & Camerini LLP, will provide opportunities for further business and technology cooperation between U.S. and Russian companies, and includes a seminar, panel discussions, and a special Russian Pavilion (booth # 3757).

Since the establishment of the C3 Expo’s predecessor, CeBIT America, in 2003, the Russian Conference, organized by the Mid-Atlantic - Russia Business Council, has become an important component of the trade fair’s international program. In 2004, CeBIT America was acquired by H.A. Bruno LLC, with programs that originated in CeBIT continuing in the C3 Expo. The 2005 and 2006 C3 Expo was selected by the U.S Department of Commerce as an event for foreign attendees participating in the International Buyers Program.

This year, the main part of the Russian Conference will be held on June 28. The program on this day includes panels and presentations covering the most promising and pressing issues of Russian-American business and technology cooperation. Welcoming remarks will be given by the Deputy Trade Representative and Consul Commercial of Russia in the United States, the Deputy Head of the Trade & Economic Mission of Ukraine in the United States and the Consul General of Belarus.

There will also be a "Russian Science & Technology Opportunities for U.S. Business" seminar moderated by Paul Smith, Deputy Chief of Mission (retired) at the US Embassy in Moscow; the seminar highlights various institutes, scientists, and projects in Russia, and includes presentations by U.S. corporations with significant technology transfer collaboration experience in Russia. The presenters are a diverse group, representing organizations ranging from major corporations to small businesses and from research universities to technology associations and foundations.

Another important event of the Russian Conference is the panel entitled "Doing Business in Eurasia: Resources and Tips", also moderated by Paul Smith. This panel will include U.S. Department of Commerce representatives and speakers from the Embassies and Trade Representations of Eurasian countries. All the panel members will give a brief overview of the science and technology strengths of their respective regions and will discuss potential areas for cooperation.

A delegation from the Russian Federation, representing companies in the information technology, telecommunications and other technology industries, will be present to participate in panel discussions and exhibit the latest advancements in Russian technology for the duration of the C3 EXPO. In addition, a Ukrainian delegation and a Ukrainian technology companies panel will be taking part in the conference and exhibition for the first time.

This year’s Russian Conference is being organized by the Mid-Atlantic – Russia Business Council and sponsored by EPAM Systems and the international law firm Fox Horan & Camerini LLP. EPAM Systems is ranked number 1 of the “Top 5 to Watch in Central and Eastern Europe” in the annual “Global Services 100” listing of the world’s leading ITO, BPO, and customer care service providers. In addition, Arkadiy Dobkin, the CEO of EPAM Systems, was named one of the Top 25 Most Influential Consultants of the Year by Consulting Magazine. Fox, Horan & Camerini LLP recently signed a cooperation agreement with the Russian Lawyers Guild, Russia’s largest legal organization, consisting of law firms, advocacy bureaus, and legal associations.
