The event aims to support the cultural, sporting and commercial activities of hunting and falcons, and to build mutually beneficial relationships among the hobbyists and traders. It is also meant to discover products and services in this important youth sector and represents an important event for all those interested in hunting and falcons. 

The general public will have the opportunity to get familiar to this field, including a diverse market and cultural and environmental backgrounds that will enable them to identify hunting as a hobby and sport with its conditions and seasons and environment. The exhibition is one of the largest international events of its kind specialised in falcons. Many activities will be held during the event, including auction of birds, falconry and hunting and art exhibitions. The exhibition will also provide hunting training for children. The organising committee has set a number of conditions when registering falconry imports for the exhibition, and those wishing to participate must fulfil these conditions and follow the instructions and provide the necessary licences.
