Twice every year, in April and October, the Kenya Homes Expo takes place. The idea is to bring together real estate industry players; from insurance firms to mortgage and finance.
This year, at the 21st edition of the event, any startup in the housing sector with the highest sales; by customer numbers will receive a free stand in the exhibition. About 50% of the exhibitors at the expo are Startup SMEs, with about 100 expected to exhibit at this monthâ€™s expo which will take place from the 16th through 19th of April.
â€œOur aim is to show small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs) currently grappling with the high cost of marketing that there exist inexpensive promotion tools they can exploit,â€ said Mr. Daniel Ojijo, Kenya Homes Expo co-founder
The Kenya Homes Expo begun in 2005 with 40 exhibitors but has grown to take up two halls and a courtyard at the KICC.
The Kenya Homes Expo is endorsed by the Ministry of Lands, Housing and Urban Development and is organized by the Homes Kenya magazine. The 21st editionâ€™s theme (that takes place next week) is â€˜Ignite Your creativityâ€™.
