Due to a renewed optimism in the tourism industry, and subsequent increase instability to the tourism trade, Kenya’s food, beverage and hospitality sector has seen significant market growth which has made it a focal point for opportunity and investment.

With its inaugural edition taking place in April 2021 at the Sarit Centre in Nairobi, Kenya, this brand-new event will offer a pivotal platform for those in the industry looking for new suppliers, producers and services providers to enhance their business.
