I have very good impressions of the participation in the exhibition. We liked the stands very much, even on the first day people were so active, we found many interesting contacts. We are very pleased that many people know our company. Our target audience came directly to the Astana Zdorovie exhibition. Of course we didn't sign any contracts here, but we exchanged contacts by agreement, and I hope that there will be a lot of good results. This is the first time we are exhibiting in the healthcare industry. In fact, the pandemic has greatly affected all areas of human activity, our company is also subject to all existing restrictions. Everyone was very tired, did not participate in any offline events, missed the live communication. The online format is good, of course, but it's important to get a feel for people. To summarize, I would like to say that we are very satisfied with the organization of the exhibition, and all our expectations were fully met.
I would like to thank the organizing company, because we missed the live events. Against the background that we missed and experienced a certain feeling of stagnation, the impressions of participation were the most positive. Thanks to Iteca for finally going offline, and I really hope there will be more events of this kind from now on. We met our target audience, in terms of its quality all very well, only industry experts came. But the number was definitely affected by the Covid restrictions. We've noticed that there are a lot of public health clinics here, doctors come up, take an interest, and that's very encouraging. We have the kind of equipment that you don't spontaneously buy. Here's hoping that the contacts we've made here will bear fruit. We have been on the Kazakhstani market since 2008, and every year we take part in the exhibition, and we will definitely be coming in 2022!
I have only positive impressions of participation, the exhibition is very interesting. Most importantly, I liked the fact that the approach here is comprehensive, that is formed its own platform, where representatives of B2B and G2B meet. Government agencies separately hold meetings, the state is very open. In parallel, discussions are held on current topics, in which we have a great interest. The Astana Zdorovie exhibition is very lively, there are a lot of visitors, a lot of questions, we are very happy. Our target audience, as such, is patients. But the theme of the exhibition is aimed at another part. But in general, a lot of people come up, are interested, specifically distributors and business representatives. We, as a big company that is expected to do something innovative, introduced a lot of new products. We have built agreements with government agencies here, and fruitful meetings have been held. We are participating in the exhibition for the first time, but we are already planning to participate next year. We really missed such events, so we decided to participate in the exhibition. The efficiency in any case from participation will be excellent, people were able to meet face to face with their colleagues and talk about themselves.
I have only positive and pleasant impressions from the exhibition. Kazakhstan is a long-standing partner of the Novosibirsk region, we are in the lead in terms of trade turnover between our region and the Republic of Kazakhstan. They are always nice people, nice partners who are very constructive. In my opinion, the target audience of the exhibition meets our needs. We have done everything to ensure that our target audience, our potential partners come to the exhibition. We were able to clearly present our products and discuss further cooperation. I think we will participate in the exhibitions in Almaty and Nur-Sultan next year. The pandemic, of course, has affected everyone, but there are also positive aspects. We have not traveled anywhere for a long time, during this time we have accumulated developments, what we want to offer to other markets, in particular to the market of Kazakhstan.
We have been waiting for the exhibition for a long time, because the pandemic has had a strong effect on the entire health care system. The impressions from the participation are very good, excellent exhibitors are represented. This year we presented the Kazakh production, which was established in 2021. Of course, we have met our target audience, and the chief doctors and leading specialists continue to approach us. The Minister of Healthcare and the Deputy Minister of Healthcare visited our stand yesterday. There were several pre-agreements for the purchase of medical equipment, and we also received several partnership offers from Russian manufacturers. We are taking part in the exhibition for the third time, we plan to participate further, we have already talked to the organizers and have chosen a place for next year. The pandemic influenced our decision to participate. After all, this is the impetus for medium-sized businesses that deal in medical equipment to make new connections and apply new technologies. The pandemic, despite its consequences and severity, was an impetus for us to be not only a distributor, but also a producer. We are proud of it.
I have only positive impressions from the Astana Zdorovie exhibition. We are participating for the first time, and we have already realized that there is a big interesting market here that needs to be mastered. We are very glad to be here today. I'd say there are a lot of specialists who come here for profile questions, but there are also those who are hearing about our products for the first time. There have been no contracts yet, but agreements have definitely emerged. Despite the pandemic, we were more influenced by the desire to be present in the Kazakhstan market. We are in the business of making thermal containers, which is cold chain control, vaccine delivery for each of us. We help save lives.
