We are excited to be holding our inaugural Manufacturers’, Technology and Innovation Expo, scheduled for 6th to 8th of July, 2022 at the Kenyatta International Convention Center (KICC), in Nairobi, Kenya. The theme of the EXPO is Affordable, Clean and Sustainable Energy for all.

It will be open to local and international Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs), as well as technology providers in the energy sector, to showcase equipment and solutions that demonstrate business efficiency, cost effectiveness, quality service, and positive customer experience.

This high-level event comes at a time when Kenya, and indeed the region, is actively working to deepen electricity access while undertaking strategic investments to: improve power quality and reliability, deploying technologies to improve technical and operational efficiencies, and revolutionising customer service interactions.

This is happening as the energy sector undergoes major developments, such as the shift towards renewable energy, the increased adoption of e-mobility, and the drive to embed clean cooking practices as the global push to protect the environment gains momentum.

Exhibitors are therefore called upon to showcase bespoke, tried and tested solutions that will enable Kenya’s energy sector to enhance its internal efficiencies and deliver affordable power while providing a superior customer experience.

In addition, the event will offer participants an unrivalled platform to exchange ideas, benchmark against their peers, and identify potential areas of collaboration with like-minded organisations. We have therefore invited all the energy sector agencies in Kenya, generators, leading power utilities in the region, development partners, financiers, and regional and international trade partners, to participate.

We will therefore be greatly honoured to invite exhibitors to showcase their solutions during the EXPO. (Exhibition booths are available on first come, first serve basis). As a leading provider of innovative energy sector solutions, we are looking forward to a highly impactful engagement.
