AFMASS Kenya edition – Eastern Africa’s fastest growing food, beverage and milling industry trade event
The Africa Food Manufacturing & Safety Summit (AFMASS) Conference & Expo Kenya edition is the ultimate platform for key decision makers to trade, network and learn about the latest technologies and innovations in Eastern Africa’s industry.
Now going into its fourth year, the event provides the most important route to Eastern and sub-Saharan Africa’s food & beverage, milling & feed and hospitality & foodservice industry.
Even though the event targets the industry players from Eastern African countries (Uganda, Tanzania, Rwanda, Burundi, Ethiopia, Somalia, DRC and neighbouring countries), delegates and visitors at past editions of AFMASS Kenya edition have come from 4 continents and over 40 countries from around the World.
The event is well appreciated for the quality of visitors, delegates, speakers and panelists; the coverage of current issues and trends that resonate with the sector and the region; and the variety of local, regional and international brands that continue to use the event to reach into the region’s industry with their products and services at the well-attended Exhibitions.
AFMASS Kenya is structured to provide delegates, visitors and exhibitors with an excellent networking and trading platform through a high-level conference and trade exhibition.
The theme for the AFMASS Kenya edition 2018 is:
DIGITAL TECHNOLOGIES AND THE FUTURE OF THE MANUFACTURE, RETAIL AND DISTRIBUTION OF FOOD PRODUCTS IN AFRICA.
The theme resonates with Africa: a tech savvy, young population dominates the population profile of most African countries, and the mobile phone has become the most vital tool for these young people to communicate, network, get entertained and informed, and increasingly, buy goods and services.
This young population is on the look-out for the latest technologies, and the food, beverage and milling industry cannot be left behind.
The event venue, Nairobi Convention & Conference Centre (NAICC), is located just 5 minutes from Eastern Africa’s largest airport and the gateway to the region, Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (JKIA), which enables exhibitors, delegates and visitors to access the venue with ease and comfort.
The Conference sessions shall bring together 400+ regional and international delegates and speakers daily in conference and panel discussion sessions.
A parallel exhibition, open to trade visitors, and where over 2000 visitors are expected over the three days, will provide exhibitors and partners the opportunity to trade and reach out to the industry.
