Manufacturers and distributors, as well as business people from Kenya and East Africa region will converge at the Kenyatta International Convention Centre (KICC) from 27th -30thSeptember 2016 Dubbed Kenya Chemex, the trade fair provides the biggest investment opportunities in the East African region. Among the local participants include; the Ministry of Industry& Enterprise Development Government agencies- KENINVEST, KNCCI- county Chapters, business federations and Private sector Associations such as Kenya Publishers Association, Micro and Small Enterprise Federation, KNCCI, as well as the foreign Diplomatic Missions in Kenya; Uganda, Tanzania, Rwanda, Ethiopia, Sri Lanka, Pakistan, Egypt among others. Combined, the event will see over 5,000 trade partners explore investment opportunities at a time when trade and tourism has opened up doors for international trade and also at a time when Kenya is seen as a trade hub by international investors. The Event will bring together potential international investors with great interest in investing, trading and doing business in the region to participate as exhibitors and key resource persons during the trade fair. The 5th Edition was held in December 2015, Nairobi with resounding success and the chemical industries' sectors in Kenya, Egypt, India, Indonesia and Uganda are set to benefit from the four -day international trade fair. The Trade Fair is organized by Kenya's Ikapa media East Africa ltd- Kenya in collaboration with 2Art Fairs; an International Trade Fair & Exhibition company based in Egypt. Kenya Chemex enjoys the support of the government of Kenya strongly supported by the Ministry of Industrialization Trade and Cooperatives, Private sector Associations and Key Government Agencies.

This trade fair comes after a series of major successful annual fairs that saw over 4,000 trade partners represented by the exhibitors amongst them Kenya and Egyptian trade partners, Kenya Chambers of Commerce, Egyptian and Kenya promotion councils. This year's confirmation of trade visitors are expected to double translating to more business projections.

The international trade fair is expected to foster cooperation rather than competition with the ultimate goal being to complete rather than compete with both local and international investors, the trade fair creates a friendly business environment with the existing local companies. It is expected that the hallmark of the trade fair and exhibition will be business-to-business linkages whereby the organizers will seek to engage the participants in the match making sessions with pre-arranged meetings. The Kenya Chemex trade fair has combined a series of networking forums in the b2bs, networking lunches, cocktails, and gala dinners organized to enhance the trade fair activities.
