Dear Guests and Participants of the 17th Margaritinskaya fair
I warmly welcome all of you on the Arkhangelsk land!
As you may know, each territory of our vast country has its own values. It is the uniqueness of the Russian regions that has always been the point of their interaction. In ancient times, the fairs were the unifying point and now they are being revived throughout Russia - they stimulate business activity and are rightfully considered to be a subject of the regional pride.
The Margaritinskaya fair is the largest international trade, economic and cultural event in the Arkhangelsk region. At the fair we meet as good friends, like-minded people and partners. Today it is especially important to preserve the good that has connected the peoples of Russia for centuries in politics, culture, and economy.
From year to year, the geography of Margaritinka's participants and the range of products and services are expanding, business and cultural programs are being improved.
I hope that all visitors will find what they like at the fair: whether these are local or overseas products, new business, cultural or even friendly contacts.
It is important that each guest receives the best and warmest impressions of the Russian North and its glorious traditions, which were formed many centuries ago. Dear friends, be inspired by the atmosphere of the fair and good mood.
