The fair presents a BtoB Networking Platform. Could you explain more about it?

Yes there will be a dedicated B2B arena for pre-registered exhibitors where they will have appointed meetings with the right decision makers.

What are the latest trends in the Construction Industry? Will these trends be present at the fair?

The Building & Construction Industry in East Africa is witnessing a constant growth and getting more international exposure as the Governments and Trade Associations have boosted the confidence of international investors in the region which is a significant driver of economic activity and development. East Africa’s growth in the building & construction sector drives employment and productivity, which in turn encourages government investment in quality infrastructure & projects. As East Africa’s population continues to grow, now more than ever, it needs quality infrastructure. The private and public sectors have a key role, in partnership, funding, collaborations and ultimately the owning this infrastructure.
