On 6 May 2023, the Azerbaijan Exhibition Organisers Association (ASTA) held a tree planting action in honor of the 100th anniversary of the birth of Azerbaijan's National Leader Heydar Aliyev.

Held under the slogan "100 years - 100 trees" in the area adjacent to Baku Expo Center, the event was a part of "Year of Heydar Aliyev".

It brought together the members of the Association and was accompanied with the celebration of the jubilee of the National Leader, who had always paid special attention to environment protection and recovery. Setting a lot of stores by Azerbaijan's nature, Heydar Aliyev considered it a must to keep it intact. During his leadership, Azerbaijan's government kept in focus such issues as environmental stability and protection, as well as landscape gardening in the regions and capital alike.

Chairman of the Azerbaijan Exhibition Organisers Association, Farid Mammadov opened the event with a welcome speech. Participating in the event were representatives of Caspian Event Organisers, Iteca Caspian, AzExpoMontage, Caspian Freight Services, GREENWICH Travel Club, and Baku Expo Center.

This year, we celebrate the 100th jubilee of National Leader Heydar Aliyev, and President Ilham Aliyev of Azerbaijan has signed a decree, declaring that the year 2023 shall be celebrated as "Year of Heydar Aliyev" in our country. The National Leader played an important role in the formation of Azerbaijan's exhibition industry; it was but him who put forward the initiative to hold international exhibitions in our country. The first ever, branded Caspian Oil&Gas, happily coincided with the development and announcement of the National Leader-drawn new oil strategy in 1994. 

The tree planting event has been organized by the Azerbaijan Exhibition Organisers Association in order to commemorate Heydar Aliyev's anniversary and show that his planting and environmental initiatives do live on.

Besides, such events promote the restoration of ecological balance and environment protection and help enrich the atmosphere with oxygen; they are designed to raise people's awareness about the protection of vegetation and call on them to be more sensitive to environmental issues and act accordingly.
