Reviews

    Zafig Khalilov Lecturer at National Aviation Academy (Azerbaijan), PhD I would like to note that the Air Law Conference is very useful in terms of studying and promoting air law. One of the important points is that it joins world experts in this field. Every time at this Conference, each of us feel very comfortable and cozy, as in our hometown. I cannot fail to note that all the most topical issues of air law are discussed at the Conference. I believe that in the future this Conference will be in the forefront in international rankings in the field of aviation.

    Olga Antonova Deputy Head of Legal Department at Mosgortrans The annual Air Law Conference is a unique event that brings together experts from all over the World and from different parts of Russia. They share invaluable practical experience in aviation, which will not be told in books. I thank the organizers for holding the event at a high level and for the opportunity to discuss topical issues with professionals who create trends in the transport industry and related new technologies.

    Nikolai P. EHLERS Partner of Ehlers, Ehlers & Partner, LL.M. (McGill) The St Petersburg Air Law Conference is a unique and very important international forum as it facilitates the meeting of air law specialists from Russia not only with colleagues from neighboring countries, but also from Western Europe. This is very useful as it helps to develop a greater understanding for each other in the interest of cooperation in this industry which is international by nature and has the main function to connect people more easily. The vision of the organizers to establish this forum and their great ability to create meaningful – and enjoyable – events year after year in beautiful St Petersburg, which has been a driving force and a symbol for closer ties between East and West since its foundation, is to be commended.

    Anastasia TITOVA Head of Legal Department at Convers Avia Airlines I express my gratitude to the organizers of the 11th Air Law Conference in Baku. The event was held at the proper level, it was full of satellite events, proposals and lively discussions. The locations chosen by the organizers for the conference and cultural program made the event very informative, interesting and informative. I am sure that each of the participants received not only professional experience, but also pleasant impressions. Thank you!

    Elena SHIROKOVA Head of Legal Department at Kronshtadt The Air Law Conference is a unique event in Russia for lawyers who are working in the aviation industry. It's no secret that we have to work in a rather specific area of law, with limited information and available sources. There is also an opportunity to get useful information in a structured way and in a short time: there is not a single passing topic, not a single random speaker. Separately, it is worth noting the Organizers of the Conference, who from year to year, despite all external circumstances, manage to invite leading foreign experts. From my own experience, I can say that the Conference, in addition to gaining knowledge, is also an excellent platform for making acquaintances and acquiring new contacts, primarily due to the openness of the participants. The communication that takes place between sessions may well rival in usefulness that of the main event.

Today, the Center houses the Azerbaijan State Museum of Musical Culture, the Azerbaijan State Museum of the Theater. J. Jabbarly and the Azerbaijan Museum "Istiglal", as well as the Art Gallery. The interiors of the Museum Center have repeatedly served as a decoration for events of various kinds and scales, including international ones, with the participation of the UN, UNESCO, the meetings of the International Organization of Turkic Culture (TURKSOY) and the CIS Member Countries for cultural cooperation, joint projects were implemented with the Russian Museum, the Hermitage and others World famous museums.
