Rebuild Karabakh, the first and only specialized exhibition dedicated to the reconstruction of the region, is held for the 3rd time this year. It aims to draw public attention to the positive changes that take place in Karabakh and works to involve companies and other entities in the restoration of the region.
Rebuild Karabakh urges international participants to engage in investment projects in Karabakh; its ultimate objective is to boost investments in the region, ensure the participation of foreign companies, and have the regional infrastructure restored and civil facilities built from the ground up. The variety of innovative products, services, and solutions presented at the exhibition factors in new contracts between representatives of various industries for the sake of joint projects in Karabakh.
It is noteworthy that, pursuant to the Memorandum of Understanding signed as part of Rebuild Karabakh 2021 exhibition, Caspian Event Organizers and Iteca Caspian, the organizers of various international exhibitions and congresses in our country, donated in both 2021 and 2022 a part of the income from the sale of the exhibition area to the Karabakh Revival Fund as a support to the restoration and reconstruction works underway across Azerbaijan's liberated territories. Currently, cooperation with the Karabakh Revival Fund is ongoing in this direction and every exhibitor will donate to the Karabakh Revival Fund in 2023, as well.
Rebuild Karabakh is covering such fields as ecology, energy, information technology, construction, building materials, agriculture, mining, transport, security, road construction and infrastructure and a number of other sectors.
