Print East Africa is the only exhibition and conference in the region that is purely dedicated to the printing sector. Bringing together industry leaders and some of the largest global brands, it is the premier event of its type and an unrivalled platform for potential buyers, distributors and end-users. The event is in its fourth edition and used to be a part of Propak East Africa, a packaging, printing and plastics exhibition. However with this show outgrowing the venue in Kenya and no more space being available, it was decided to segment the whole event and run Print East Africa as its own dedicated exhibition. The East African market is going through a period of substantial and stable growth and offers huge potential to local and international companies. Kenya already has a diverse economy and has identified manufacturing as one of the key sectors to focus on towards achieving Vision 2030.
Print East Africa will focus on digital, offset, screen, textile and 3D printing, bringing new technologies into the market and helping grow and improve efficiency within the sector
The 2017 event ran from the 7-9 March and grew substantially on all levels. With high visitor turnout, fantastic visitor quality and a wide range of products and machinery, the event was hailed by all those involved. The below post show report was when Print East Africa was an element of Propak East Africa and therefore these results are for that event.
- 68% increase in exhibition space from previous event
- 3095 trade visitors
- 123 exhibiting companies
- 43 countries represented
Digital printing machinery, screen printing, textile printing, 3D printing, offset presses, films and foils, printing solutions, print consumables, labelling, barcoding, signature solution, ink and more
