Monday 28th September to 4th October saw us debut at the annual Nairobi International Trade Fair (NITF) which attracted over 500 foreign and local exhibitors, this number being higher than last year’s participation.
The 13th edition of the trade fair mainly focused on value addition, agro-processing, market diversification, product launches and delivering value to all stakeholders. “This is with the aim of enhancing business integration through participation by all, both locally and internationally,” said NITF branch manager Minnie Njage. The fair themed ‘Enhancing Technology in Agriculture and Industry for Food Security and National Growth’, saw us, Illuminum Greenhouses Kenya, greatly live up to it.
We had variety of products to show: Our award winning, Farm Automation Kit, attracted over 5,000 farmers to our stand. With a simple SMS command, one could direct this kit to irrigate your farm or greenhouse, going a long way in incorporating technology and efficiency into farming.
We also had our own wooden greenhouse model at the grounds. With the presentation of a polythene-covered greenhouse floor and potted plants, we welcomed questions from our soon to-be clients. Moreover, visitors got a first-hand feel of how the use of potted plants has been advantageous to greenhouse farming.
We further presented our affordable prices to our esteemed clients, explaining in detail how our cost breakdown for different sizes of greenhouses and further how we would customize their greenhouses to fit their needs, financial status, land space and designs.
Better yet, our agronomic team was in place to answer questions from to-be and budding farmers. The team explained our Agronomic Support package to our esteemed customers. All this for the farmers to ensure improved productivity from their farms.
Illuminum Greenhouses had the pleasure of hosting The Principal Secretary State Department of Agriculture Sicily Kariuki (MBS) at our stand, Her Excellency Rachael Ruto and state dignitaries amongst other honorable guests.
We would love to appreciate all those who visited our stand, may God bless you. Feel free to visit our offices for any clarifications or follow up. To our staff who represented us at the grounds, kudos for the great job. For the organizers of the Nairobi International Trade Fair, keep up the good work. We had a wonderful stay at the grounds.
