At the IPO - Olimp 2007 ceremony, held within the framework of the IV Russian IPO Congress, VTB's site devoted to the Bank's IPO won the nomination "the Best Corporate Site".

Launched in May 2007, VTB IPO site was intended to inform shareholders and investors on the IPO procedure. In developing the site a special emphasis was laid on the user's comfort and availability of the most important information. A number of innovations are implemented in the project: site organization as a simple step-by-step instruction for a shareholder, interactive guide, created in the streaming video technology, automatic identification of the user's country, distribution of materials for Russian and foreign audiences taking into account legal restrictions.
