Expo 2017 Astana: Austria hits the spot with mind, soul and energy


Austria is using its presence at the Expo to position itself as a strong business partner with a high level of technological expertise.

A total of 115 countries and 22 international organisations are represented at the Expo 2017 world fair in Kazakhstan, which is being held around the theme of ‘Future Energy’. The EXPO is taking place from 10 June to 10 September 2017 in the Kazakh capital Astana, and some three million visitors are expected.

Kazakhstan is Austria’s most important economic partner in Central Asia. The EXPO is a chance for Austria to showcase both its expertise and the capabilities of its companies on all aspects of renewables, energy efficiency and infrastructure. Creative solutions to global environmental and energy problems are being presented under the motto ‘Austria – with mind, soul and energy!’

The centerpiece of the Austrian Pavilion is the ‘Austria Power Machine’, a two-storey structure that presents the country as the birthplace of ideas as creative as they are unusual. Visitors pass through 10 interactive installations exhibiting Austria’s ingenuity, technology and creativity as they actively engage with the complex topic of ‘energy’.

As part of Expo 2017 Astana , ADVANTAGE AUSTRIA Almaty is forging links for Austrian companies with international stakeholders at a series of major events focused on different sectors. Visitors to the pavilion will be able to make initial contact with companies as they build a picture of the comprehensive range of services provided by Austrian firms and/or exhibitors and take advantage of the expertise that has taken Austria to the vanguard of the global market.
