Week of Mining and Metallurgical Complex Is Held in Almaty
On September 17-19, in the City of Almaty in four Exhibition Halls of the Kazakhstan Centre of Business Cooperation "Atakent" the Week of Mining and Metallurgical Complex will be held including: the International Exhibition of Mining Equipment, Ore and Minerals Mining and Concentration – MiningWorld Central Asia 2014, the Road and Heavy Construction, Communal Machinery Exhibition – KazComak 2014, and the Exhibition of Metallurgy, Metalworking and Mechanical Engineering – KazMet 2014.
A special feature of this year is the 20th Anniversary of MiningWorld Central Asia. The Project history began in 1994 with a small exhibition Kazmin, which was devoted to the industry in general and represented about 40 companies, mostly foreign ones. In 2003, the Kazmin was renamed into an international brand – MiningWorld Central Asia; the narrower issues were sorted out and the development of two projects within a single event has begun – KazComak and KazMet. As of today, these Exhibitions collect annually about 300 participating companies, 30-40% of which represent domestic MMC.
This year the Exhibition is being attended by companies from 28 countries: Austria, Australia, Bulgaria, the Great Britain, Germany, Belarus, Iran, Italy, Spain, Kazakhstan, Canada, China, South Korea, Latvia, the Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Russia, Singapore, the USA, Turkey, Uzbekistan, Ukraine, Finland, France, the Czech Republic, Switzerland and Japan.
National stands will be presented by Australia (10 companies); Germany (8 companies); China (25 companies); Norway (7 companies); Poland (10 companies), Turkey (23 companies) and France (11 companies). Kazakhstan companies are the basis of the Exhibition.
