TEAS Events

TEAS hosts and sponsors a series of events throughout the year. Our events centre on TEAS’ main focus areas – culture, business and public affairs – and are designed to promote Azerbaijan on the world-stage.

Our thriving events calendar includes the annual TEAS Business Forum, the TEAS Lecture Series, classical music and mugham concerts, art and photo exhibitions, and public affairs-related events, in addition to a number of ad-hoc events hosted throughout the year.

TEAS events provide a platform for TEAS members and members of the public with an interest in Azerbaijan to meet and learn about the country and its culture.

Details of our previous events can be found in the Past Events section.

If you are interested in attending any of our events, or the various sponsorship opportunities that exist, please contact our events team:
