Expogroup organizes Kenya’s only specialized kitchen & Bathroom event.


The growing kitchen and bathroom industry in Kenya will be seeing renewed business opportunities which is also poised to open up the market to more international players following the recent announcement of The Big 3 Africa event which will house the three most exciting sectors in the east African region namely - Builders Hardware, Building Material and Bathroom & Kitchen. This event focuses to upgrade the existing Kitchen and Bathroom industry. The event will be taking place this year from Oct 3-5 at the KICC, Nairobi, Kenya.

With a scale expected to be larger than 2013 and richer in content, The Big 3 Africa will feature an entirely new concept, showcasing all segments of the kitchen industry, including kitchen furniture, built-in appliances, kitchen fittings and kitchenware, as well as bathroom equipment and accessories at a single location.

Positioned as a high-end exhibition, The Big 3 Africa 2017 will enjoy a fresh shot of international elements to enhance its image. The comprehensive exhibits will target developers, investors, architects, renovators, designers and high-income groups. Engaging professional forums and promotional events are some of the activities to be expected to create marketing opportunities for exhibitors and offer new insights for visitors.

The Big 3 Africa in its second edition is gearing up with the aim of promoting the development of Kenya’s kitchen and bathroom industry. While gaining considerable support from local industry players over the years, the event has always maintained a relatively narrow focus on hardware related kitchen and bathroom products, such as gas appliances, range hoods, and bathroom fittings.

Expogroup is the leading organizer of trade fairs in Africa, with a strong presence in this region for the past 18 years. BUILEXPO organized by Expogroup is the largest Building and construction event in East Africa. The Big 3 Africa has been the leading international kitchen event, gathering domestic and international key companies of the kitchen sector to showcase ideas and innovations in the industry.

Leveraging on the strength of the organizer, participants at the show are expected to benefit from a professionally organized international event, enhanced media work, extended buyer promotion, and comprehensive side events.

The Big 3 Africa 2017 will be held alongside FOODAGRO 2017 & Kenya International Trade Exhibition (KITE) 2017.
