Virtual Conference Experience

Watch on our Website

St. Petersburg Conference on World Affairs has a rich history of bringing together distinguished diplomats, military, media, and academic experts to discuss critical international issues of the day. This year we are preparing to collaborate in an innovative format that will allow for a hybrid virtual and in-person experience. We are monitoring the pandemic conditions and will update participants if our approach will need to change to a fully virtual experience.  

We look forward to you joining us this year to advance your insight, understanding and impact in the community.
