Travelling with APEC ABTC

Hey guys,

I will be travelling to the Buybrand expo in September. I have an EU passport and HK issued ABTC with "RUS". I have the expo tickets and hope this will be enough to show my business purpose.
Does anyone know if the border agents are likely to care if I arrive 3 days earlier via St Petersburg for some sightseeing? I will be travelling with the missus who has 14 days visa free and we are planning on taking the high speed train to Moscow and fly out from there. Should I get a tourist visa (looks like a lot of paperwork) or will I be fine with the ABTC

Thanks a lot.

I think in general ABTC allows you to use your visa for Business and Tourist purpose anyway? Just tell them your office staff booked the wrong ticket if being asked?
