- We have held more than 3000 events in the context of EXPO 2017

The Amphitheater is the Central object of the exhibition which includes an entertainment area, a green-park area, exhibitions, a covered stage and an open space for up to 6 thousand people. That was the very place where were concerts of world-famous stars and shows have been held.
Grand stage complex with a size of 117 x 60 meters have been erected by our technicians for the implementation of all the events.
The roof of EXPO 2017 was designed taking into account the increased wind loads, it can withstand gusts up to 28 m/s which is particular important in the complicated climatic conditions of Astana.
At the installation process, we used ballast in the form of concrete blocks weighing about 300 tons.
The stage was equipped with wide aisles with ramps for large stage props and scenery delivery. Also large spacious dressing rooms for hundreds of artists have been designed.
We have solved a difficult task connected with the sound of outdoor events by the means of installing additional equipment such as stage monitors and speakers. At first sight it would be difficult to distribute the sound perfectly on the site due to the asymmetrical shape of the scene. But we managed to do it and provide the audience with excellent audibility at any point of the stage.
