The Chairman of JSC “Astana Expo-2017" NC Akhmetzhan Yessimov congratulated the anniversary guest. He presented multiple tickets for EXPO-2017, tickets for the Cirque du Soleil, a tablet, a portable charger and souvenirs with the symbols of the exhibition to the millionth visitor.
"We planned two million visits for the entire time of the exhibition, but as you can see, in 31 days we had a million guests. Now we see a good activity, last Friday there were 66 thousand visitors in one day - this is a very good indicator. We are moving according to the plan, and today's millionth visitor, I will not hide, made us happy," A. Yessimov noted.
G. Zhanabergenova came with her husband and three-year-old daughter to the exhibition:
"I work as a mathematics teacher at school N76 in Astana. I came here for the second time, for the first time I came to the dress rehearsal with the collective, but then I did not get into the "Nur-Alem" Sphere. Today I came with my family and did not expect that this will happen," said a happy woman from Astana.
