CIBEX East Africa 2017 - Building and Powering East Africa

The fourth CIBEX East Africa will take place from 15th to 17th February 2017 at the Kenyatta International Convention Centre. New technologies, international know-how and current projects will be showcased to the regional industry experts. Locally supported by main industry associations such as the National Construction Authority and the Kenyan Federation of Master Builders and internationally promoted by IMAG, subsidiary of Messe München, CIBEX is again a must-to-attend event for the construction and infrastructure business community within the region. Official pavilions from Germany and Turkey are already confirmed.

The East African economy is generally the fastest growing economy within the Sub-Saharan Africa region. Top on the list is the investment put in towards Construction, Energy and Infrastructure. These are huge investment areas due to the existing funds and the growing middle income population. The expected growth in infrastructure within Sub-Saharan Africa stands at around 10% per annum to the year 2025. With abundance in natural resources and recent mineral, oil and gas discoveries, demographic and a more investor friendly environment, the investment spotlight shines brightly on East Africa.

For exporters who want to make a first move into this booming market or local dealer who want to widen their scope of business with international partners, CIBEX East Africa provides an international networking platform for the whole construction and infrastructure industry within the region.
