Participation fee payment

Creating a payment document

Payment for participating in the Forum is to be made after the Organizing Committee has approved your application to participate and you have received your invitation to the Drug Security Forum. On receiving your invitation, please confirm that you will be participating in the Forum via the Roscongress personal account and only then proceed to paying the participation fee.

To pay the Forum participation fee, participants should go to the ‘My events’ section of their Roscongress personal account and select the Drug Security Forum. Then, go to the ‘Event dashboard’ section and open the ‘Payment’ section, as shown on the chart below.

In this section, participants enter the payer’s details and select the payment method (invoice in roubles or bank card for residents of the Russian Federation, or invoice in roubles/US dollars/euros or bank card for non-residents of the Russian Federation). The participant may then select the type of payment document: participation agreement or invoice agreement (a single document incorporating both agreement and invoice).

Please note: when entering the payer’s details, make sure you enter the details of the individual or legal entity making the payment.

Changes to payer’s details may only be made via the Roscongress Foundation specialist whose contact information may be found in the Roscongress personal account or by contacting the SPIEF information centre at tel. +7 (812) 680 0000.

Making the payment

The participation fee may only be paid by the individual or legal entity indicated as the Client in the participation agreement (invoice agreement).

To pay by invoice, the payer should contact their bank. Payment may take more than three banking days. When paying by invoice, we also recommend factoring in any bank commission.

To pay by bank card, the participant should specify their email address in the ‘Confirm payment details’ window for receiving their electronic payment receipt, then confirm the payment details. The standard online payment form will then open for participants to enter their bank card details and confirm payment. The name on the bank card must match the payer’s name in the agreement. The payment will go through immediately.

Acceptable payment methods include Visa, Mastercard, American Express, UnionPay, and MIR payment system cards issued by Russian banks and UnionPay payment system cards issued by foreign banks. Payments are made in Russian roubles.

Before making the payment, please make sure that:

Should a participant have any questions regarding payment (including if the payment does not go through), they may contact their Roscongress Foundation specialist, whose contact details can be found in the Roscongress personal account, or the Forum information centre by tel. +7 (812) 680 0000.

The payment date will be that on which the amount due is credited to the Roscongress Foundation account. The participant may check whether the sum has been received in the Roscongress personal account or by calling the Roscongress Foundation specialist.

Please note that full and timely payment of the participation fee is essential for receiving a participation badge and accessing the Forum venue.
