More than 150 exhibitors from 30 countries to participate at Kenya’s biggest international multi sector trade exhibition.

The 20th edition of the Kenya International Trade Exhibition (KITE) will take place at the Kenyatta International Convention Centre (KICC) in Nairobi from 2nd - 4th June, 2017. The event will provide a platform for over 12000 trade visitors to interact and source directly from more than 150 exhibitors, showcasing the very latest in consumer goods from all across the globe.

“Kenya’s consumer market is poised for considerable expansion in the coming years, boosted by consistent GDP growth, a growing middle class with increased purchasing power and development of new shopping malls and e-commerce portals.” says Mr. Trindade, Exhibition Manager - Expogroup.

“KITE 2017 aims to engage and service this growing demand by offering businesses in Kenya and the East African region as a whole, an array of inventive products, not available otherwise in the local markets.”
Keeping in mind some of the fastest growing sectors within the consumer market, KITE will also include four distinct sub sectors: FOODAGRO, PPPEXPO, MEDEXPO and INDUSMACH.

FOODAGRO will focus on the food, beverage, hotel and agricultural sectors; PPPEXPO will cover the plastics, printing and packaging sectors; MEDEXPO will target the medical and pharmaceutical sectors while INDUSMACH will include products and services from the industrial sector.

Kenya International Trade Exhibition to propel the East African Consumer Market

East Africa: Getting exhibitors on board is always considered a milestone, but at the Kenya International Trade Exhibition, it is a milestone crossed often. Expogroup are in the process of bringing together prominent exhibitors that force you to sit up and take notice, as much at the meritorious line-up as at the regularity of the announcements. As the fair draws closer, the exhibitors –just like the excitement and anticipation- keeps on increasing.

The Kenya International Trade Exhibition will be held from the 16th -18th June 2017 at KICC, Nairobi, Kenya. Its specter will resonate across the globe. With exhibitors hailing from several parts of the globe, the fair has truly become a global phenomenon. Now in its 20th edition, the fair will once again serve as a crossroads for Consumer companies around the world.

For a roster that already includes the crème de la crème of the consumer industry, the trade events have been relentless in its pursuit of achieving consumer industry versatility; signing a spate of exhibitors. The trade events have been receiving acknowledgement from the consumer community not only in Africa, but across the world; exhibitors from across the world from previous editions stand testimony to that.

The fair might be a few months away, but that hasn’t hampered companies from rekindling their association with Expogroup. Not forgetting the collaboration with several regional trade bodies in Kenya, Tanzania, Ethiopia, Uganda, Somalia, Mozambique & Congo.

Expogroup provides a fulfilling experience not only for the visitors, but for the exhibitors too. International Exhibitors have found many interesting new clients and also representation in Africa , which gives them the opportunity to build on top of that and continue their path to growth and expand in the market.

As the build-up to the fair gains momentum, it is already discernible that the upcoming 20th edition of KITE, like its predecessors, will be a memorable one.
