The exhibition is organised by the Global Conference Solutions Limited (GCSL) in Kenya together with 2art Events and Exhibition Company of Egypt and a number of associations in the field of chemical industries and investment from Kenya, India and Egypt.
Dubbed Kenya Chemex 2013 Trade Fair, the event is expected to attract over 50 companies from Kenya, Egypt and India engaged in the manufacturing of plastics, packaging, paints, paper, pharmaceutical bottling and general glass industries.
Global Conference Solutions Director Hillary Akoto says the hallmark of the exhibition will be business-to-business linkages whereby the organisers will seek to match the participants with each other based on their areas of interest.
Exhibitors and visitors to the trade fair will benefit from promoting their business, participating in over 10 business-to-business sessions, establish distributorship or agent’s channels, secure orders at the event, source new suppliers and conduct business development.
Akoto said Kenya Chemex aims to broaden existing investment opportunities, partnership creating a platform for competitive trade available in both the regional and the international market and to view the latest technologies in the chemical industries.
“It is with this view that the market knowledge together with the technology will be transferred to fast track development of the African economies thus boosting multilateral and international trade,” he said.
He emphasised that the international trade fair will foster cooperation rather than competition with the ultimate goal been to complete rather than compete with both local and international investors.
