15th Auto-expo


The 15th edition of Auto-expo Kenya is slated for next week, starting Thursday, at the usual venue of the Kenyatta International Conference Centre (KICC).

Organisers say that the number of exhibitors and visitors this year is expected to rise by at least 25% since an aggressive campaign was launched last month.

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, and Mozambique.

Most of the East African companies who attended 2011 event have already shown interest in participating at this year’s Exhibition.
