The year and a half break in exhibitions and conferences has greatly exacerbated the value of communication in a live format, and the great interest of the participants and the uninterrupted flow of visitors has only confirmed the continued growth rate of the construction industry. According to MIIR RK, the construction materials industry accounts for 6% in the manufacturing industry. Nearly 2,000 enterprises in Kazakhstan manufacture construction products, whose number of employees exceeds 29,000, and the growth rate of the construction industry in January-June 2021 compared to the same period in 2020 amounted to 12.5%.

The grand opening of the exhibitions was marked by a VIP tour, the guests of honor were the Ambassador of the Slovak Republic in Kazakhstan - Milan Kollar, Consul General of Germany in Almaty - Mario Zoos, Consul General of the Islamic Republic of Iran in Almaty - Mohsen Fagani and President of KAZGOR PA - Aidar Tatygulov.

It is noteworthy that, despite Covid restrictions and difficulties in crossing borders, the list of international exhibitors has also expanded. For the first time, six leading Slovak manufacturers are exhibiting their latest achievements and products as part of the national stand at KazBuild. The prospects for cooperation between Kazakhstan and Slovakia are further highlighted by the special status of SARIO Slovak Investment and Trade Promotion Agency, which has become the Official Partner of the KazBuild Exhibition.

Special attention at exhibitions is paid to safety rules and sanitary and epidemiological measures. Inside the pavilions, basic anti-covid rules are observed, including social distancing, use of PPE by exhibitors and visitors, use of antiseptics and disinfectants and cleaning and treatment of stands with disinfectants. The new registration system makes it possible to distribute the flow of visitors by time and thus maintain the recommended number of people in the exhibition hall. Ashyq QR Code Scanning System has become a reliable safety tool, which has made it possible to strictly prevent COVID-19-threatening visitors from entering the exhibition hall.
