The INNOPROM GOLF CHALLENGE is an annual VIP golf tournament held at the start of the INNOPROM International Industrial Trade Fair
Held as a unique "tie-free" business event, this is the first Russian tournament to bring together the business and political elite of Russia and other countries, leaders of Russian and international industrial companies, heads of foreign ministries, heads of federal and regional authorities, and key participants of the INNOPROM International Industrial Trade Fair to play a friendly round of golf.
The Tournament speaks a new business "language," offers a comfortable environment for networking, sharing ideas or project presentations, and creates a relaxed atmosphere where it is easier to understand and relate to business partners. In addition to the golf competition, distinguished guests and participants are also treated to an extensive cultural and entertainment program.
The tournament is supported by the Ministry of Industry and Trade of Russia and the Russian Golf Association, and organized by Pine Creek Golf Resort.
This year, INNOPROM GOLF CHALLENGE offers its participants the opportunity to play in two Tournaments with world-class golf stars at once.
