Montgomery East Africa re-launches its premier food and hospitality exhibition into Kenya

The two business-to-business co-located exhibitions, The Kenyan Food Event and The Kenyan Hospitality Event will be held in Nairobi, Kenya in 2020.  As organisers of some of Europe and Africa’s largest and most recognised food, beverage and hospitality exhibitions, Montgomery East Africa is well-positioned in the market to deliver a leading exhibition that can provide its attendees with unique business opportunities, inspiration and networking.

The combined food and hospitality markets in Kenya are massively growing and offer one of the best opportunities for investment on the African continent. The combined events will bring together more than 2,500 industry professionals, making it a one of a kind trade show for the region.  Alexander Angus, Montgomery East Africa’s Regional Director had this to say of KFE and KHE’s launch, ‘We are immensely excited to announce the re-launch of our food and hospitality focused exhibitions. Under new branding and aligning with our Nigerian event, we are confident that the Kenyan Food Event and Kenyan Hospitality Event will quickly become the unmissable industry event of the year. The East African market is a hot-bed of opportunity at the minute with tourism growth rates climbing, now is the time when local buyers are heavily investing in the region. We believe KFE and KHE will give visitors an exclusive insight into the market as a whole and offer unrivalled understanding as to how your business can grow.’

An inaugural edition of KFE and KHE will take place at the Sarit exhibition Centre in Nairobi, Kenya from 21 – 23 April 2020.  The KFE and KHE 2020 are set to be unmissable industry events, providing interactive show-floor features for both visitors and exhibitors alike. Among the features expected to take place next year will be ‘The Skillery’ where leading chefs will host live kitchen demonstrations to provide exclusive tips and tricks from trending ingredient combinations to techniques.

In addition to this, there will be a ‘Business Hub’ where you can expect to discover business-led conference sessions from leading experts who will unveil market opportunities and best practises to take your business to the next level, whether you’re a small or large enterprise. Further to the business and live demonstration areas, KFE and KHE will be hosting a ‘Meet the Buyer’ programme which will facilitate buyers, suppliers and manufacturers in building valuable business relationships across the industry. ‘For us, it’s very important to have a wide range of businesses attend the event, so we want to tailor our content as best possible. There are so many fantastic small businesses in Kenya. We wanted to provide a dedicated area where they will benefit from specific content on investment ideas and growth opportunities. This is what the Made in Kenya Hub will be,’ said Alexander Angus.

Visitor entrance will be completely free but registration will not open until nearer the time, if you’d like to register your interest to attend either exhibitions, you can do so via the Kenyan Food Event or the Kenyan Hospitality Event websites.
