St. Petersburg is the third most populated city in Europe and the largest city in the Baltic Sea Region, one of the world’s most beautiful cities and main tourist destinations.

St. Petersburg is not only cultural but as well restaurant and bar capital of Russia and the Baltic Sea Region. This makes St. Petersburg an ideal host city for BALCON - Beverages Industry Trade Fair & Forum for Russia and Baltic Sea Region countries.

BALCON 2020 was planned to take place in conjunction with World Cocktail Championships and Congress by the International Bartenders Association – the most important annual events for bartenders of the world. Unfortunately, this event was cancelled in 2020.
