Autoexpo Kenya 2018 is all set for a record run when it opens its doors from 17-19 May at the Kenyatta International Conference Centre, Nairobi with over 200 local and international delegates confirming participation.
Kenya's Motor Vehicles Sales grew 12.1 % in Dec 2017 as compared with a decrease of 24.8% in the previous year. Car Sales of Kenya recorded 11,885.6 units in Dec 2017. The demand for aftermarket automotive products and components in Kenya, Tanzania and Ethiopia is growing significantly.
Autoexpo Kenya 2018 is being supported by the East African Chamber of Commerce, Industry and Agriculture (EACCIA).
At Autoexpo Kenya 2018, trade visitors will have the opportunity to visit local and international suppliers from over 30 countries showcasing the latest in auto accessories, components and spare parts. Exhibitors at the event include Davanti Tyres from UK, Wepp Gmbh from Germany (Car Care), Bosch – Kenya, Freezetone Products, Inc from USA (Radiator Additives), Ao Obninskorgsintez from Russia (Engine oils & Lubricants), Progressive Steels from India, Britpart from UK, Alex Original Ltd from Israel, Petrovoll from UAE, Samsun Segman from Turkey, Car-O-Liner Truck & Bus from Sweden and Elledi Srl from Italy are just some of the exhibitors for our 2018 Autoexpo event.
Chinese auto suppliers have more than doubled their exports to Africa since 2010, with revenue from the continent now crossing $1 billion. The country’s presence at the event is underlined by a Chinese Pavilion comprising over 50 automotive firms. A UK Pavilion will be an added feature at this year’s event.
“While the global economy is predicted to grow by 2 to 3 percent between 2017 and 2020, Africa is expected to grow by nearly 6 percent, making it one of the world’s fastest-growing regions. Africa is home to six of the top ten fastest growing economies in the world. The Automotive Industry is now a multi-billion dollar business on the continent. What’s even bigger is the industry that supports this market – vehicle accessories, spare parts, lubricants and repairs/maintenance services. There is a demand for over $8 billion worth of spares and accessories each year. Smart entrepreneurs, big and small businesses are making a fortune from the growing demand for vehicles and complementary goods and services,” said Max Lewis, Director of Sales for Expogroup, the organizer of the show for the last 20 years
“This year’s arrangement would give an idea on how the Auto industry market is growing tremendously. It’s always been a tremendous pleasure to see many big and key market players, both new and frequent exhibitors. It is nothing but a testimony on how important the Autoexpo industry is to both, regionally and globally. This is eventually going to grow bigger and bigger every year,” said Trevor Daniel, Exhibition Manager for Expogroup.
The delegates visiting would be able to identify various B2B networking events, intended to arrange global suppliers and local dealers to build new professional bonds, strengthen the present ones and converse on various trends and product that control the automobile market at the global level.
