Dear friends! 

On behalf of the Board of the Russian Ice Hockey Federation, I am pleased to welcome all the participants of the Third World Hockey Forum!

It may safely be said that the World Hockey Forum, being held in Moscow for the third time, has become one of the most remarkable world hockey events.

The Forum attracts leading hockey experts from all over the World to the Russian capital while being one of the most unique discussion platforms our professional community needs.

One of the priorities of the Forum is to show a variety of many different opinions on the most relevant issues in the field of ice hockey. This is an excellent chance to discuss ways of the ice hockey development in today's competitive environment.

One cannot talk about the future of the ice hockey and ignore modern ways of young hockey players development. Present Forum provides us with an opportunity to have a more detailed discussion of all aspects of this matter and analyze the already existing national training programmes.

The agenda of the Third World Hockey Forum provides a substantive and interesting dialogue.

I am certain that the forthcoming discussion will bevery productive and helpful for the future of the ice hockey.

Dear friends!

The World Hockey Forum has become a traditional event of major importance for the global ice hockey community. It will be held for the fourth time this year. And today  we can say with assurance that the idea of holding such an event was timely and effective.

Ice hockey is one of the most popular sports worldwide: its effective development depends on a wide range of factors. The development and progress require sustainable intensive work, most of which is aimed at exploring different pathways to find the best possible solution for arising challenges. In this regard, one should not underestimate the importance of the World Hockey Forum.

The experts gathering annually at the World Hockey Forum meetings establish the global agenda for the upcoming hockey seasons and set the tone for professional dialogue between sports practitioners, coaches, players, functionaries and influencers. Only such a constructive approach can ensure comprehensive development of ice hockey under the difficult conditions of a highly competitive environment.

See you at the 4th World Hockey Forum. I wish all of us progress and effective work.

Sincerely,
René Fasel
President, the International Ice Hockey Federation

Dear friends!

The World Hockey Forum is not only one of the major professional events in the world of ice hockey, but also a clear illustration of the unity of the global hockey family. For the fourth time Moscow welcomes the world's leading hockey experts: legendary players, coaches, functionaries and researchers.

Given the experience of previous meetings , we can conclude that we are all ready to share our experience and are willing to listen and hear each other, because we are united by a common desire - to promote this sport and to expand its boundaries.

Ice hockey requires a balanced development strategy in order to meet these expectations. Success of such strategy depends on the selected approach to hockey players development and training .. We are pleased that our desire to discuss these extremely important issues resonates with our foreign colleagues.

We are proud that the World Hockey Forum has become a landmark for the sport life of the Russian capital - it is difficult to overestimate the importance of ice hockey for our country and the degree of love of our citizens supporting it. That is why it is essential for us that our favorite sport continues developing and that it can be competitive within the modern sports global arena.

Sincerely, 
Vladislav Tretiak
President, the Russian Ice Hockey Federation

Dear colleagues and friends!

On behalf of the Ministry of Sports of the Russian Federation and on my own behalf I welcome the participants, organizers and guests of the Third “World Hockey Forum” in Moscow!

Over the past two years, the Forum has proven its professional worth and established itself as one of the most influential annual events in the hockey world.

The forum brings together hockey experts, people of a like mind who are ready to face-up all arising contradictions to ensure ongoing development of our beloved sport.

The lessons learned from our prior experience in discussing topical issues within the “World Hockey Forum” allowed us to put together a very specific business programme this year. The best practices in training young athletes, analysis of different national hockey players training programmes and creation of successful hockey brands – these are the primary areas that determine the potential of hockey as a sport, as well as an industry.

I am certain that the Third “World Hockey Forum” will give you an opportunity to take part in an open, interesting and productive dialogue.

May the participants, guests and organizers of the Third “World Hockey Forum” enjoy effective work and implement all their initiatives designed to facilitate an ongoing development of the global hockey movement.
