Naivasha Horticultural Fair: September 21-22, 2018
Kenya: "Many new stands this year"In about two months, the 16th edition of the Naivasha Horticultural Fair will be held on September 21 and 22. The fair has consistently grown in size since its inception and also this year, an increase in number of exhibitors is expected. "There are many new stands and all the existing participants keep on re-booking year after year, says Naivasha Horticultural Fair Chairman Richard McConnell.

Again, next to showcasing innovations, there will be an important focus on the small scale farmers. "Last year, we already saw a small increase in the small scale farm visitors and we hope to attract more this year." Last year, the fair welcomed over 3,500 visitors over the two days.
The show is held outdoors and the weather conditions are therefore playing a major role. Even though it has been very wet over the last months, the expectations are good. "Kenya currently coming out of a very prolonged wet rainy season has now hit winter, which runs to approximately mid-August." And when looking at the editions of the last years, the days of the fair mostly have been dry. "Last year, we have had some rain on the setup day, but during the show, it was dry."
The Naivasha Horticultural Fair is one of Africa's biggest Horticultural fairs. This year it will be organized for the 16th consecutive year. The event showcases products and services from stakeholders in the horticultural industry (primarily flower industry but also car manufacturers, accessories, financial institutions, etc.).
