A distinctive feature of the forum's exhibitions this year is the demonstration of a cluster approach in organizing a mechanism for the qualitative transformation of regional economic systems. The development of regions based on cluster principles is relevant and has high practical significance. The development of the Vitebsk region is presented as an interconnected cooperation of enterprises, organizations, and the education system, united around a scientific and educational center, linked by partnerships with government authorities in order to increase the competitiveness of enterprises, the region and the national economy.
The main points of growth of the region are reflected in the formed exhibitions: "The territory of innovations in industry", "Light industry – a platform of opportunities for cooperative cooperation", "Innovations in pharmacy, healthcare, medicine", "Energy: resources and technologies", "Investments.
