100,000! In Astana, Kazakhstan, the Monaco Pavilion, at the heart of the international exhibition, has just welcomed its 100,000th visitor.

They were awarded a guided tour of the premises with passage to the VIP lounge and a gift from Albert Croési, the general manager of Monaco Inter Expo.
2,500 people each day
Since the beginning of the Astana 2017 exhibition, the Monegasque pavilion has aroused an interest among visitors, with a frequency of 2,500 people per day. First carried by the attractive power of the name “Monaco”, then surprised by the installation chosen by Monaco Inter Expo to respond to the theme of the exhibition, on the energies of the future.
The pavilion, in fact, exploits a harmonious vision between the Mediterranean world and Monaco. A reflection translated by a 17-metre-long undulating mirror, infinitely and beautifully reflecting a six-minute film depicting the link between the marine world and the Principality.
A few days ago, as it was Monaco’s National Day in Astana in June, a group of students from the Lycée technique and hotelier of Monaco came to discover the exhibition site. And the electric bike that they helped create, which is part of the decor of the Monaco pavilion. The students were also able to present their work to IBE members, the organizing office of the exhibition.
Since opening to the public on June 10, the Astana site has received more than a million and a half visitors; an essentially national and Asian audience. The exhibition continues until 10 September.
