Automotive brand Genesis to support the Russian Investment Forum for the third time

6 February 2018. A ceremony to transfer the Genesis G80 cars to the organizers of the Russian Investment Forum in Sochi took place in Moscow today. Roscongress Foundation CEO Alexander Stuglev and Hyundai Motor CIS Managing Director Alexey Kalitsev took part in the ceremony.

Hyundai Motor CIS has delivered 110 Genesis G80 cars for transport at the Forum. Forum participants will be driven around in comfortable and safe AWD Genesis sedans.

“The Russian Investment Forum offers a unique venue for presenting the investment potential of Russia’s regions. The Hyundai Motor corporation, which owns the premium Genesis car brand, is the biggest Korean investor in Russia; that’s why it’s important for us to be part of one of the major events in the country’s economic life. Cooperation between Genesis and the Russian Investment Forum goes back to 2016. This is testimony that the Forum organizers and participants hold our premium brand and car quality in high regard. In turn, we are happy to see the scale of the event growing by the year”, Hyundai Motor CIS Managing Director Alexey Kalitsev said.

“We view cooperation with Hyundai Motor CIS on vehicle support for the Roscongress Foundation’s key business events as strategic. Transport for ranking guests and participants must meet the convenience, comfort and safety requirements, and Hyundai Motor CIS is a reliable partner that fully satisfies all of them. We have received a lot of positive feedback about the Genesis cars from our Forum participants and we are proud of our long-term partnership”, Alexander Stuglev said.

The Russian Investment Forum will take place in Sochi on 15–16 February 2018 and will be attended by Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev.
