Euroblog: the triumph of the in-laws
VTB Capital has changed the date of its Russia Calling! conference, highlighting “mounting pressure from clients’ in-laws” as the reason for moving the event so that it doesn't clash with Thanksgiving in the US.
The date of the major capital markets event, which takes place in Moscow, initially caused some consternation among US investors when they were sent asked to save the dates November 27-29, as Euroblog noted.
But the event has now been moved to November 20-22, according to a message Euroblog has seen.
Perhaps, despite the possibility of yet more US sanctions against Russia, the bank hasn’t wholly given up the idea of attracting US investment after all, as the first choice of date might have implied. And World Television Day, on November 21, probably won’t keep anyone at home, will it?
