5TH OIL & GAS 2016
Oil & Gas Africa - The Gateway to the East African Oil & Gas Industry.
2016-05-12 - 2016-05-14
The 4th Oil & Gas Africa - Int'l Trade Exhibition, 27th to 29th April 2015, is a hub for key players in the oil and gas community, attracting leading oil, gas and petroleum companies from around the world. This regional trade event serves the resource-rich east African region and city of Nairobi; Kenya's major centre of oil and gas activity for many of the leading operators in the country. Kenya has attracted oil & gas companies not only because of its ports and strategic location but also because the government is keen not to be left out of the exploration. Oil discoveries in Uganda and Kenya and gas deposits found off Tanzania and Mozambique have turned east Africa into a hot spot for hydrocarbon exploration. Trade visitors from all over East & Central African countries are being invited directly and in collaboration with several regional trade bodies in Kenya, Tanzania, Ethiopia, Uganda, Somalia, Mozambique & Congo. Though Kenya by itself is one of the biggest markets in Africa, major emphasis is being laid upon attracting traders and importers from neighbouring countries. Oil & Gas Africa will offer participants the opportunity to showcase the industry's latest achievements and technologies while networking with key figures from the region's oil and gas sector. The exhibition brings the industry together in a forum that is conducive to business. For more information log on to :http://www.expogr.com/kenyaoil/

Main factors that have contributed to our growth have been many, but to share a few important ones with you readers will be: Courage is Destiny. Not afraid of consequences, we have taken all the risks that came our way. Middle East & Africa were not easy to start with. Disorganization, Corruption, lack of facilities and what not. But falling and rising, we kept going with faith only in ourselves. Seeing beyond what exists. We research and venture into new markets, provide extra services and support to our clientele. For us, it's not just about providing a booth. We try hard in ensuring that exhibitors return with high business prospects and for that we go a long way into market research, focused promotions, database collection, media partnership and conferences. Vigorous staff training. Each recruitment goes through vital training sessions irrespective of his/her position or department. Apart from the regular training sessions at each unit, Expogroup organizes a special 10 days residential training course for the managers and team leaders of various departments. The staff, considered more as a family is provided enough training to succeed as a professional for the rest of his life, with or without us. What is taught first and is most important in our training sessions " How to keep happy & be happy ". Today, our support teams are one of the best in the industry worldwide. Enough on ourselves, we need now to share our success and thank all our old and new staff members, agents worldwide, government associations and media partners without whom we wouldn't have gone so far in such a short period.
