Over 30 Indian companies are participating at the 16th Buildexpo Africa in Nairobi, Kenya. The mega event is being held from May 04 to 06, 2013 at Kenya’s prime international venue, the Kenyatta International Conference Centre.
“Buildexpo is an excellent platform for Indian companies to effectively promote their range of products in a market that is filled with major opportunities. With manufacturers, importers, exporters, contractors, traders and distributors expected to visit the event, the international exhibition will enable us to meet our potential clients, thus boosting sales and marketing activities” said Mr. Shashank Agarwala from Speedcrafts Limited.
The 16th Buildexpo Africa is the regions’ largest building construction materials, equipment and machinery trade show.
“The African market is called the market of the millennium, and this is our best chance to explore this vast market. It is an exciting opportunity and Buildexpo being the largest and the oldest trade show in Kenya, we are confident of a positive response” adds another participant at the show.
The number of exhibitors and visitors in 2013 is expected to rise by at least 20% since an aggressive campaign has been launched while celebrating the event’s 16th birthday. Trade visitors from all over East & Central African countries are being invited directly and in collaboration with several regional trade bodies in Kenya, Tanzania, Ethiopia, Uganda, Somalia, Mozambique & Zaire.
Though Kenya by itself is one of the biggest markets in Africa, major emphasis is being laid upon attracting traders and importers from neighbouring countries as well. The experience and comments of exhibitors at previous events indicate substantial gains from unexpected foreign visitors a rise in such statistics will undeniably ensure business especially for the foreign participants who form almost 80 – 85% of the exhibition.
This event is being organised by Expogroup Worldwide, the organizers of the largest trade shows in Africa from over 15 years. More information about the organizers can be found www.expogr.com
