The number of foreign visitors of the exhibition after the first week amounted to 26 thousand people.

"One person, on average, manages to visit 5-6 sites. During this period, children of preschool age in the amount of more than 10 thousand, more than two thousand disabled people, veterans and persons assimilated to them. More than 14 thousand schoolchildren, students and pensioners. The number of visitors is growing daily. If the visit was 18 thousand on the first day, then last Friday 34 thousand visitors visited the exhibition,” said the Managing Director of the organizer of the exhibition.

It has also become known that the number of revealed facts of presentation of fake tickets for EXPO reached almost 200. This was announced by Daulet Yerkimbayev, Director of Commercialization Department of JSC "NC" “Astana EXPO 2017”.

"During 9 days of the exhibition, we have identified such unpleasant fact of counterfeiting tickets for the exhibition, but we are now talking about an elementary forgery. It is the photocopies of our electronic tickets. People tried to pass through with these copies, but they did not succeed.They thought that by submitting a piece of paper, you could come to the exhibition territory, but as you know, we have an intelligent visitor access control system, and each ticket is unique and has a number. Basically, in the first days we identified about 100 facts, then 70 facts. Yesterday there was not a single fact, it began to decline. I think that those who did it realized that this does not work, and most interestingly, we know where all these tickets were purchased. In Shymkent, the South Kazakhstan region,”Yerkimbayev specified.

Let us remind, earlier became known that the the police had initiated criminal proceedings for the case of production of counterfeit tickets for EXPO.
