In Russia, experts from the National Convention Bureau assessed the potential of event tourism in the regions. Kamchatka Krai took 13th place in the all-Russian rating, having improved its position by six points.

As a member of the board of the National Convention Bureau Daria Ostrovskaya said at the forum "The Far East - Winter of Discoveries", according to the global trend, business tourism brings up to three times more money to the regional economies than usual. Therefore, the Russian territories should pay more attention to this segment. The event potential rating is compiled annually ahead of the summer season. Daria Ostrovskaya noted that Kamchatka has a very good result this year, which indicates a great potential for the development of a business direction in tourism.

Also, the National Convention Bureau found out that among corporate customers from Moscow, St. Petersburg and Kazan, about 17% are planning to hold business events in Kamchatka. However, it hinders more effective development. This direction in the region has low transport accessibility and the quality of accommodation facilities. However, according to Natalia Yevnevich, Executive Director of the Project Office for the Development of the Event Organization Industry, the flight is now comfortable, the planes are at the level, which means that transport inaccessibility is nothing more than a myth. But the lack of large hotels can really be a problem.

Now a new hotel is being built in Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky in accordance with all international requirements. According to Vadim Prasov, vice-president of the Federation of Restaurateurs and Hoteliers of Russia, the commissioning of the hotel will help in the development of tourism in the region.
