The Azkoyen Group, a Spanish multinational specialising in the design, manufacture and commercialisation of advanced technology solutions, has been chosen to provide the vending machines for the Almaty Ice Arena, the most important and largest sporting venue in Kazakhstan and the most important for the future Universiade 2017. This is a new project for the Azkoyen Group with the Government of this Central Asian country. The company was previously chosen for its machines to provide the service at the Winter Olympics in Asia, held in the same country in 2011.
The Azkoyen Group, via KVC Kazakh Vending Company, the leading distributor in the region, has signed an agreement with the Kazakhstani Government to proceed with the installation of the vending machines at the Ice Arena.
The complex, still under construction, consists of three blocks: an ice rink with 12,000 seats, a training circuit with fitness area and a swimming pool.

It will have a total area of 99,600 m2.
