Thanks to this focus on forestry, Kazan has become an important hub for national and international forest-related events:
- The meeting of the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation on illegal logging in 2012;
- The regional forum “Forest and Man” in 2013, in conjunction with the “Wood Processing” exhibition, which attracted 70 companies;
- The meetings and final contest of Junior Foresters in 2011 and 2012, which brought hundreds of forestry students from all over Russia to Kazan.
In summer 2013, Kazan hosted the 27th University Games, the biggest ever “Universiade” and welcomed over 10,000 Athletes from more than 160 countries.
More information and details on the event will be available in due course.
