SOCHI is the city of XXII Olympic Winter Games (7-23 February 2014), XI Paralympic Winter Games (March, 7 16) in 2014, Russian Formula I Grand Prix from (2014-2020). It is also one of the host cities for the 2018 FIFA World Cup.
Sochi is the favorite ski resort of Russian government, business elite and Russian families, spending summer vacation on the beach. Several years ago the city was a blank spot on the map of international MICE industry. Thanks to upcoming sport events, infrastructure of Sochi is promptly developing, which gives an opportunity to international event companies to make a good use of this destination. Next year Sochi will yield to none of the popular professional luxurious world ski resorts. Sochi is an alternative “Courchevel” for Russians. Conceptually sea part of Sochi is considered as “Russian Riviera”.
Sochi is located in Krasnodarskiy region, on the Black Sea coast of Western Caucus mountains. It is one of the longest cities in the world. Due to an extension of the city (142 km) and relief (90% of the city are covered with mountains) transport logistics should be minded beforehand.
Sochi has a unique northern subtropical climate. It offers you an opportunity to get a beautiful sun tan in the morning and go skiing in the afternoon.
Sochi is a multicultural city of 400,000 inhabitants representing more than 100 nationalities. Thrilling soviet past combined with newest technologies and Olympic infrastructure heritage are creating very special ambiance with Caucasian flavor, which transforms Sochi into absolutely nonpareil MICE destination.
Sochi offers you distinctive Caucasian and Russian cuisine and seafood dishes, warm sea, palms and glaciers, alpine meadows and mountain peaks, high altitude lakes and waterfalls supplemented with good infrastructure and quality service. Upcoming high end international sport events quicken the pace of infrastructure development, including new airport, railway stations, railroads, motorways, tunnels, venues, international hotel chains, restaurants etc. All of the above transforms Sochi into a brand new and very high positional Russian destination for high end international events.
City is divided into 5 districts: Adler, Khosta, Sochi, Lazarevskoe are on coast and Krasnaya Polyana in the mountains. The most attractive districts for MICE are Sochi and Krasnaya Polyana. Olympics will be hosted in Adler, Sochi and Krasnaya polyana.
A peculiarity of Sochi is that during summer high season on coast, mountain cluster offers very attractive rates, and vice-versa: during winter ski season in mountains rates at the sea cluster are tempting. This condition makes classical MICE available during the whole year.
Sochi is an ideal place for international conferences, 3-4 nights incentives connected with sport and open-air activities, winter incentives with mountain skiing, product and press launches, especially for cars, presentations and events. The last year before the Olympics 2014 in connection with construction is good for any type of MICE for Olympic sponsors and press only.
