Pumps Africa attended the just concluded 7th Oil & Gas Africa – International Trade Exhibition which ran from 29 – 31 May. The event acted as a hub for key players in the oil and gas community.
Leading oil, gas and petroleum companies from around the world were in attendance and Pumps Africa observed that, though Kenya by itself is one of the biggest markets in Africa, major emphasis is being laid upon attracting traders and importers from neighboring countries.
This year’s event was merged with the 5th Solar Expo and companies dealing with solar power were well represented, almost to the point of stealing the show.
Oil & Gas Africa offered participants the opportunity to showcase the industry’s latest achievements and technologies. They were also able to network with major stakeholders from the region’s oil and gas sector.
Project managers in attendance got insights on which equipment to use for their projects and lots of opportunities to consult on the latest innovations and the benefits .
Some of the exhibitor categories included: Drilling & Well Completion Equipment, Lifting Equipment, Offshore Platforms, Refining & Petrochemical Equipment and Services just but to name a few.
YATO Kenya stood out among the exhibitors not just for their big stand, but the fact that they carried with them a variety of their products.
Companies such as Ruhrpumpen Group and RATO came with an intent of not only exhibiting their products, but also getting local distributors. Others like Shakti Pumps were there to cement their respective brand awareness as they already have a strong client base in the country.
Local wholesalers as well as retailers present during the exhibition were also able to get equipment at factory prices.
