The Kholsay Kolderi National Park and the Saty village received a gold medal at the Fourth World Conference on Rural Tourism.

Participation in the KITF exhibition is a prospective solution for travel companies and travel agencies in nearby countries. The visa-free travel with Kazakhstan, geographical proximity and the absence of a language barrier may be objective reasons for companies from neighbouring countries to participate.

Traditionally, an extensive business programme will take place during the exhibition, whose events will help you once again experience the atmosphere of long-awaited meetings, lively negotiations, networking and professional exchanges. The content of the business events will include a round table with representatives from “trend destinations”, a travel club, a health tourism forum and many interactive zones at the expo-event site, including the Taste&Travel Fest gastronomic platform.
