Kazkhstan in the spotlight at travel industry workshops

MISSISSAUGA — Two travel industry workshops highlighting the Republic of Kazkhstan, its tourism infrastructure and importance along the Silk Road took place recently in Ottawa and Mississauga.

Both workshops were sponsored by The Embassy of the Republic of Kazakhstan in Ottawa and Air Astana, represented in Canada by APG – Air Promotion Group.

“This was the first time that Kazakhstan has in North America sponsored an exclusive B2B information session focused exclusively toward travel industry members,” said Karl Müller, Director, Canada for APG Canada.

The target audience was made up of niche tour operators, FIT organizers and leisure/retail agency chains and presented Kazakhstan’s culture, recent history, various tourism segments and attractions, in addition to upcoming events in Kazakhstan including the 2017 World Fair.

The Mississauga presentation had additional support from the YYZ Travel Group/Canadian Gateway who specialize in the Silk Route/Kazakhstan region. Agents were also introduced to Air Astana, its fares, onboard features, routes and international quality awards.
