21st Autoexpo Kenya 2018 is all set for a record run when it opens its doors from 17-19 May at the Kenyatta International Conference Centre, Nairobi with almost 200 local and international delegates confirming participation.
“While the global economy is predicted to grow by 2 to 3 percent between 2017 and 2020, Africa is expected to grow by nearly 6 percent, making it one of the world’s fastest-growing regions with 6 of the top ten countries in its pocket. The Automotive Industry is now a multi-billion dollar business in the continent. What’s even bigger is the industry that supports this market – vehicle accessories, spare parts, lubricants and repairs/maintenance services. There is a demand for over $8 billion worth of spares and accessories each year. Smart entrepreneurs, big and small businesses are making a fortune from the growing demand for vehicles and complementary goods and services,” said Max Lewis, Director of Sales for Expogroup, the organizer of the show for the last 20 years
The show floor will present auto spare parts, tyres & batteries, lubricants, garage equipment, automotive tools, car accessories, automotive paints, car care and security products. Adding on one can also expect a display of motorboats/marine products.
The number of registered exhibitors till date already exceeds last year’s overall participation. Major companies being represented include Robert Bosch East Africa Ltd, Emirates General Petroleum Corporation – Emarat, Car Makeover Limited, Elite Tools, Impala Glass, Blue Chem – TDS Lubricants, AO Obninskorgsintez, Davanti Tyres, Allmakes 4×4, Wepp Gmbh, Winnard, Bedico Automotives, Asimco, Petrovoll, Leyland Exports, Progressive Steels, Quality One Auto Parts and Kinergo.
“Kenya is a model location for a specialized trade fair such as Autoexpo Africa which presents a comprehensive spectrum of products and solutions in the automotive industry. This will be a crucial and positive approach for the domestic producers looking to upgrade their technology, pushing them to remain competitive in the industry, as well as provide a one-stop platform for international companies looking to invest and enlarge their footprint in Kenya and the region, “said Media Manager, Expogroup, Joel D’Silva.
