Roscongress also offers opportunities for online communication between partners and participants of their events. For this purpose, they have launched a business platform RC-Business (https://forbusiness.roscongress.org/en/), where companies can publish their business cards. The platform allows companies to showcase their goods and services, find investors, colleagues and partners, expand market and supply chain, create new companies, and opt into already existing projects.
