However, due to the current situation, the Russian Ice Hockey Federation has decided that this year the conference will be staged in an online format, meaning that participants can take part in the event from all around the world. It will be staged with the support of the IIHF, Russian Ministry of Sport, the Russian Olympic Committee and the Moscow Sport Organisation.
The forum has been held annually in December since 2016, with the interest growing each year. The guests of the forum include René Fasel, Vladislav Tretiak, Roman Rotenberg, Stanislav Pozdnyakov, Graham Roustan, Vladimir Yurzinov, Roman Skvortsov and Viktor Gusev.
This year, the forum will discuss topical issues concerning the staging of domestic and international competitions in the current pandemic, digitalization of ice hockey, the impact of new technologies on the training process, new approaches in cooperation with sponsors and fans and other topics. The coaching seminar remains a traditional part of the program and will also be organized online.
