Egypt Expo – 2017
The second largest print consumables market in the world, behind the Americas, will host its very own expo for the first time in 2017. The EMEA region includes Western Europe, the Middle East and Africa and the development of the industry there may make it the world’s largest print consumables market in the future.
While research group IDC says the mature market of Western Europe has declined 2.6% in the last 12 months, other countries including the Emirates, Egypt, Algeria, Kenya, South Africa and Tanzania are growing rapidly as their markets prosper.For this reason, RT Media is relocating its popular RT Imaging Expo and Summits to Cairo, one of the safest destinations in the region. Egypt has been a gateway destination for commerce and trade for 5,000 years and continues to be a popular place for commerce and tourism alike.
The expo and conference, expecting to have over 50 exhibitors and more than 1,000 visitors, will be held April 23 & 24 at the InterContinental Hotel in the Cairo CityStars complex of hotels and shopping malls, just minutes from the airport. Scores of exhibitors have already started signing up for the event that will see a series of concurrent events—business meetings, networking events and an informative summit. The event will provide buyers and sellers alike with the opportunity to exchange the latest industry intelligence and learn about the upcoming market trends with industry experts & top players.
Investors have voted Egypt to have the leading market potential of all countries in the Middle Eastern and Northern African (MENA) region. Egypt received 46% of the vote from the investors for the best performing market, followed by UAE with 16%, followed by Pakistan with 13% of the vote. 700 leading investor companies from MENA met on March 6, 2017, at the 13th annual EFG Hermes One on One conference in Dubai.
It is the largest investment forum dedicated to the MENA region.
Investors saw Egypt’s reform and market potential and it is in the beginnings of a major economic recovery. Egypt has great market potential and it is located in the middle of MENA region. For the same reason, and following 12 months of research, RT Media (Recycling Times Media Corporation) also chose Cairo, Egypt to relocate its RT Imaging Summit & Expo.
The expo and conference, fully booked out with 64 exhibitors and expecting more than 1,000 visitors, will be held April 23 & 24 at the InterContinental Hotel (pictured) in the Cairo CityStars complex of hotels and shopping malls, just minutes from the airport.
The RT Imaging Expo & Summit will continue to be the only dedicated print consumables event in the EMEA.
