Participation in the 29th Khartoum International Trade Fair

This is an important export promotion event in the 2011 Kenya National Export Market Development Programme.  The Event is the most prominent annual trade fair in Sudan bringing together the business community seeking new suppliers and provides a platform to launch and promote products and services.  The main objective of Kenya’s participation at the Fair is to enlarge her market share and presence in the Sudanese market in light of the vibrant economic activities brought about by, among other things, the peace and stability; reconstruction efforts; and business networking opportunities presented by the annual event. Specifically, participants will have opportunities for concluding business deals/orders and negotiating distributorship and agency agreements. Kenya's participation at this event has revealed great potential for your line of products and your company is therefore invited to participate.

The Council will provide basic display facilities including a 9m² (3m X 3m) booth with an electricity power point, name on fascia board, a table, two chairs and display units such as shelves and podiums, depending on the nature of the product. As an exhibitor, you will be expected to pay a non-refundable participation commitment fee of Kshs. 100,000 meet your own travel, subsistence and accommodation expenses; additional advertisement you may desire in the supplement to be run in the print media during the Exhibition; any applicable duties and taxes on your exhibits, etc.
