From February 10-14, the Hub supported five East African home décor and fashion accessories producers to exhibit at Ambiente, a leading international trade fair for consumer goods. The home décor and fashion accessories companies had the opportunity to meet with U.S buyers and network with producers.
“Ambiente Trade Fair was a great platform for us to exhibit our products and also meet with other exhibitors with different products from all over the world, it was such an eye opener for me because i got to learn a lot and exchange ideas, it was also a pleasure and honor to have met many buyers who had great interest in our products,” said Sanabora Design House Limited Production Manager Ms. Anne Moraa
The Hub-supported companies are similar in that they meld traditional African influences with modern flair; they are also export-ready with the capacity to deliver high-quality, custom products on time to international buyers.
““The trade show was fantastic, our booth was very visible to visitors and I got very good responses from global buyers for my wooden bowls,” said Ms Zohra Baraka Managing Director of Mohazo.
Ambiente is a central platform for contract business, the Horeca (food service industry) segment and sourcing. We look forward to sharing more about what deals East African SMEs solidify as a result of their interactions at Ambiente.
