On September 25, 2004, the Russian government ruled to make the economic forum an annual event.

In 2007, the Sochi International Investment Forum became the country's main investment forum.

Each year, the forum is attended by foreign leaders and heads of diplomatic missions, heads of international corporations and Russia's largest companies, experts, and the world's mainstream media.

The 10th Sochi International Investment Forum gathered over 8,200 participants in 2011. Among them was them - Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin.
