Russian Internet Governance Forum (RIGF) is an event hosted by Coordination Center for TLD RU and supported by Ministry of Communications of Russia. Held in Moscow, Russia, the event took place in Moscow's massive Expocenter at Krasnaya Presnya on May 12, 2011.
The Forum is held annually, and saw its second opening in 2011. In 2010, Russian Internet Governance Forum was a first global domain industry event to be held in Russia and Eastern Europe, becoming a part of regionally held IGF's.
Russian Internet Governance Forum is an event where all professional views can be brought to attention and discussed. We aim to find a consensus between government agencies, telecommunications industry, businesses and society, leading to successful results in Russia and worldwide. Forum is to become a starting point for many collaborations in which Russian Internet experts could take part among with their international colleagues.
