At the Big 5 Construct Kenya, taking place from 9-11 November 2022 at the Sarit Expo Centre in Nairobi, 150 local and international construction brands will convene to strengthen brand awareness on the continent and improve business relations
International markets participating at the trade show include the United Arab Emirates, Turkiye, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, Germany, India, United Kingdom, Finland, Egypt, Greece, Ethiopia, Uganda, Spain, South Africa, Poland, and Malaysia.
For the Italian Trade Agency (ITA), the show’s ‘Country of Honour’, the show alongside the strong prospects for the East African construction market presents a not-to-be-missed opportunity for ‘made in Italy’ technologies and construction materials. Director of the ITA in Addis Ababa, Riccardo Zucconi, said that the show will give Italian companies access to quality buyers from sub-Saharan countries as well as strengthen Italian brand awareness on the continent.
“The Big 5 Construct Kenya will open up opportunities to conduct in-person business-to-business meetings, which will help strengthen bilateral business relations between local market players and Italian technology producers and material providers in the construction sector. We believe it will be a fantastic opportunity for visitors and exhibitors alike to get acquainted with the high quality of Italian construction products and technologies, which will facilitate new business relationships with Kenyan counterparts,” commented Zucconi.
The ITA is supporting 62 Italian exhibitors, including 39 companies falling under building materials and 23 companies within construction machineries. The exhibition floor space will be filled with the best of Italian solutions, showcasing a wide variety of products from wall paints to door handles, and electrical generators to earth moving machines.
The event’s Gold Sponsor, Aalberts integrated piping systems, formerly known as Pegler Yorkshire, has had a presence in the Kenyan and wider African market for over half a century through the sale of its Pegler Valves. Recognised as a leader in heat-free connections and dynamic balancing technology, the company brings together multiple world-class, globally recognised brands to provide the perfect piping system solution.
William Reaseback, export sales manager at Aalberts, remarked, “While we are still very well known in East Africa as Pegler Yorkshire, as Gold Sponsor at The Big 5 Construct Kenya, it is our intention to show that the Pegler Valve brand is not going anywhere, and it is only the company name that has changed. We are also looking forward to showcasing our new technology solutions and to meeting and doing business with leading industry players.”
