New venue for better accessibility

The Oshwal centre auditorium is Nairobi’s most modern, comfortable and well-equipped facility for performances as exhibitions and events.To reach the venue is much easier than reaching the former exhibition venue, what was stuck in the middle of Nairobi’s government area and traffic jams were inevitable every day.  Free parking for 350 cars in the basement and 150 cars on the outside as well as a perfect connection to public transport are huge advantages.

High level conference program:

3 days concurrent to the exhibition, speakers in the field of construction and building materials will held lectures and chair panel discussions on late-breaking topics for the industry. In collaboration with associations National Construction Authority andKenyan Federation of Master Builders as well as international partners the lectures are on professional basis.Contemporaneously SCALEX offers topics in the field of transport and logistics in partnership with Africa Infrastructure Digest.

Main conference topics for Infrastructure and logistic in Kenya are:

  • Trends in African Logistics: Set up of requirements, challenges and chances
  • Start for wealth fare: Logistic Clusters and Infrastructure Management as key to success
  • Standards for international Logistics: Influences on African Markets and requirements for projects

  • Stay connected: Ports and Hinterland as link to international markets.
  • Value chain Management: Logistics as a new discipline for developing the country.
