( The luxurious five-star Corinthia Nevskij Palace Hotel, situated on the famous Nevskij Prospect, is central to every area of St. Petersburg, named by the New York Times as one of the 24 destinations for 2007. All of the major historical sites including the Hermitage museum and the Winter Palace, the Alexander Nevskij monastery, St. Isaacs Cathedral are nearby and easily accessible from the hotel, as are the major business districts.

In its elegant lobby, top business executives mingle with prize- winning writers; opera singers rub shoulders with entrepreneurs. This season, the Corinthia Nevskij Palace Hotel is brimming with the energy of many of the world’s most interesting individuals. And along with these high-achievers are another group of elite guests: attendees at global conferences in pivotal areas — financial, pharmaceutical and others.

Global Conferences

MasterCard Worldwide
Corinthia Nevskij Palace Hotel hosted MasterCard Worldwide’s recent meetings for more than 80 of the company's directors from the US and Europe. The general meeting took place in the St. Petersburg Conference Hall. The Corinthia Nevskij Palace Hotel, already known for its excellent meeting facilities, will be the largest luxury hotel conference facility in St. Petersburg when it completes its renovation and expansion in 2008.

Roche Diagnostic Company
Another successful conference was held the following week, organized by the Roche Diagnostic Company. This was a select gathering of medical specialists who could both present and benefit from news about the latest trends in diagnostics. Perhaps new lifesaving techniques will come directly from this “3rd Diagnostic Forum Roche 2007.”

Famous Guests

Opera Star Rene Pape
On a lighter note (but with a deeper voice!) famed international bass singer Rene Pape stayed at the Corinthia Nevskij Palace Hotel while performing the role of Filippo II in the Verdi opera Don Carlo. Because the Corinthia Nevskij Palace has been a
”partner of the world renowned Mariinsky theatre for many years, opera singers, dancers and actors are regular guests at the hotel while performing in the theatre. During his starring role at the XV International White Nights festival, Mr. Pape was feted and treated like a true star. Which is… the all way every employee, from top down, are trained to treat every guest at the Corinthia Nevskij Palace

Nobel Prize Winner Gunter Grass
Still in the cultural arena, but with a Nobel Prize rather than a full orchestra behind him, the German writer Gunter Grass called the Corinthia Nevskij Palace Hotel home while participating in the “Days of Germany Festival” organized by the Goethe Institute. Mr. Grass’ lifetime of novels have been translated into more than 20 languages, as has his controversial new memoir, a best seller. St. Petersburg has always been a city of culture and intellectual activity, and more and more, it is becoming a truly international hub of each.
