Adequate infrastructure has always been cited as being among the key criteria’s in the pursuit of sustainable economic growth and social development.

The importance of infrastructure development to achieving economic posterity is a topic well canvassed. It is commonly noted that infrastructure development is a foundation on which to build an economy.

Efficient infrastructure supports economic growth, improves the quality of life, and is necessary for national security.

When we come down to the quality of life, numerous studies point at there being a direct link between investment in public infrastructure and quality of life. These include investments in transportation, power and communication facilities and social infrastructures to name a few.

According to the World Bank, infrastructure is the key to Africa’s economic turnaround and will play an even greater role in the continent’s continued development.

Kenya, in particular, is making giant strides in infrastructure and urbanization, with demarcated economic zones, commercial and residential buildings, and resorts for tourists.

The country’s infrastructure and construction industry value are expected to double between 2018 and 2020. There has already been a spike in the demand for building material and machinery.

For quality infrastructure to be in place, it is important to carry out a market survey and select the best from the best who will be able to perform magic and bring out the best. This is where the 21st edition of BuidExpo comes in handy.

Buildexpo Africa is the only show with the widest range of the latest technology in building material, mining machines, construction machinery and heavy equipment. At the 21st edition of Buildexpo, East Africa’s largest building, and construction fair, brings you exhibitors from over 40 countries who are the finest in infrastructure development to showcase what they have to offer.

At the three- day event set for May 3rd-5th 2018 at the KICC, people will get a chance to find what suits them best from about 14.3 million business prospects, with over 10,000 products, equipment, and machinery on display across an expanse of more than 10,000 square meters.

Last year’s event witnessed international pavilion participation from India, Turkey, China, Italy, Malaysia, and Germany.

Over the years, the BuildExpo has grown to cater to the demands of not just the Kenyan market, but of the whole region of East Africa. This mega expo is the ideal forum for international players to showcase their products and services to the huge market in Africa.

The expo receives visitors from across East Africa, and trade visitors are invited directly in collaboration with regional trade bodies in Kenya, Tanzania, Ethiopia, Uganda, Somalia, Mozambique, and Congo.

Kenya is certainly one of the biggest markets in Africa, but Buildexpo also lays strong emphasis on attracting traders and importers from neighboring countries.

Apex Steel Limited and KAP Plastics, the largest manufacturers and distributors of steel and pipes will be taking part at the BuildExpo. The two will be able to showcase some of their building and construction material they produce. Being among the most sought-after producers of construction material, it will be a chance for their existing and potential clients to meet, interact and learn more about their wide variety of products. Don’t fail to visit their stand.

Do not miss out on this event and more so, take time and visit the Apex Steel Limited’s booth to be able to discover how they can give you the power to build.
