The Global expo focusing on the entire value chain of water, electricity and renewable energy technologies will kick off in Nairobi from October 24-26.
The Water, Electricity and Power expo (WEPEX) will provide an opportunity for the exchange of ideas between the private and public experts on how to transform the attitude towards water conservation and going green and on measures to improve service delivery.
The expo will also provide a forum for the East African countries to engage and sign memorandum of understanding and partnership deals in going green and showcase their latest technologies. It is also expected to open an avenue for the international sector players.
Delegates from more than six countries across the globe are likely to participate. The event is organized by IkapaMedia East Africa alongside other stakeholders.
The main players include East African Water Association (EAWA), Kenya Renewable Energy Association (KEREA) and Kenya Water for Health Organization (KWAHO).
“It is about time for the African companies, firms and institutions to take the leadership on the African economy in these important economy boosting sectors to avert the global effects in the continent,” Said Links fairs Chairperson Reda Mostafa.
Link fairs, is an agency offering full service in exhibitions field with an aim of expanding businesses.
The last time such a summit was held was in 2016. The participants reaped great benefits through signing of two memorandums of understanding in water filtration and solar energy.
The 2017 and 2018 conventions failed to take place due to political tension according to the Ikapamedia East Africa Managing director Florence Sugut.
