Building on Success - Insights from 2023

Supported by its Gold Sponsor made in KUWAIT, the event facilitated thousands of B2B meetings between 3,558 trade visitors from all over Ethiopia and neighboring countries and 138 exhibitors from 16 countries.

The exhibitors came from Austria, Bulgaria, China, Ethiopia, France, Germany, India, Italy, Jordan, Kenya, Kuwait, Netherlands, South Korea, Taiwan, Thailand and Türkiye.

Among the show highlights was the Hosted Buyers Program for VIP investors from Rwanda, Tanzania and Uganda, organised in cooperation between the Italian Trade Agency ITA in Addis Ababa and the show organisers. The Hosted Buyers held B2B meetings with Italian and non-Italian exhibitors.
