The main partners of the Nobel Festival are the global company Coca-Cola, Jusan Bank, Altyn Qyran Corporation, Auezov South Kazakhstan University, and Seifullin Kazakh Agro-Technical University.
Nobel Fest is the largest international non-profit technology and science education event. Nobel Fest's mission is to make global education and science available in every corner of the world. More than 14 Nobel Prize winners, 14 Breakthrough Award winners (Science Oscar), global innovators, and 500 universities from 155 countries participate in the festival each year.
Due to its positioning, Nobel Fest is a record-breaker among Kazakh forums with the highest number of online participants - 500,000 people. This is more than all forums taken together (Digital Bridge 2021 - 10,222, Astana Finance Days 2022 - 20,477).
