Public presentation of the new concept for National Expocenter of Ukraine by Civitta and partners2017-07-25
On July 20, 2017 the new concept for VDNG, developed by experts of Civitta together with urbanists from PUPA, was publicly presented in Kyiv, Ukraine. VDNG is a 286 hectares park where the National Expocenter of Ukraine is located. The complex was opened in 1958 and had a very important political and economic role during the USSR era, showcasing the major economic achievements of the country. In the last 25 years neither the Expocenter, nor the park were used to the full extent.
The work on the new concept for VDNG was lasting for more than a year. Experts and analysts from different offices of Civitta (Lithuania, Estonia, Ukraine), as well as Lithuanian public urbanism company PUPA were working on the new strategy for the complex. The vision for growth for 40 years was developed, as well as detailed strategy for the next 5 years, and 10 specific business cases for attraction of private investments.
The public presentation attracted media representatives from all major Ukrainian TV channels. The special guest was the wife of the Ukrainian president Petro Poroshenko.
