The 20th Kenya International Trade Exhibition 2017

The 20th KITE – Kenya International Trade Exhibition, a multi- sector trade event to be held in June 2017 is all set to present over 10,000 products, equipment and machinery from over 30 countries. It concentrates on some of the largest growth categories within the multi sector industry, and has five distinct sub categories, namely: FOODAGRO, MEDEXPO, PPPEXPO & INDUSMACH which will cover the food, Hotel & Agricultural sectors, Medical & Pharmaceuticals, Plastic, Printing & Packaging sector, the Industrial and finally consumer sector.

The number of exhibitors and visitors in 2017 is expected to rise by at least 20% since an aggressive campaign has been launched while celebrating the event’s 20th 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. The experience and comments of exhibitors at previous events indicate substantial gains from unexpected foreign visitors and we strongly feel that a rise in such statistics would ensure business especially for the foreign participants who form almost 80 – 85% of the exhibition.

This is a great platform to meet importers in Africa and to build B2B relations. Trade visitors have a great opportunity to meet exporters from over 30 countries. KITE 2017 brings together Key Personnel from Importers, Manufacturers, Traders & Distributors of related Products, Equipment & Machinery, Exporters and Govt. & Private purchasing organizations.

The major categories covered under this mega event are:

  • Interiors Furniture Hospitality & Leisure
  • Industrial Machinery
  • Medical & Healthcare
  • Printing & Packaging
