How far is the hotel mentioned in your package from the exhibition center? Can I change the hotel if I do not like it?
The hotel is a two minutes drive from the exhibition centre. We have selected the best and nearest hotels as our official one and there should be no reason for disliking them. Since reservations and payments are made in advance, it will be difficult for us to make the change.

Our Company has never been to Africa. We are slightly worried about safety and total organization of the event?
East Africa is as safe as any other region in the world. Though we would say that Africans are the friendliest people in the world, it is always necessary to take precautions no matter where you are. There is absolutely no danger to life but petty thefts are possible. You just need to take care of your expensive and personal belongings such as laptops, mobiles and watches etc. by not leaving them unattended. As far as organization is concerned, Expogroup has an experience of 14 years in Africa. Our facilities, equipment and services are unmatched in the region though they cannot be compared yet to exhibitions held in Germany and other developed countries. However, facilities are being improved every year.
How can I get hold of a business directory?
We have asked all our official hotels to provide you a business directory / Yellow pages in your rooms. Besides, you will also receive a copy of it at your stand and you can request you consultant to provide you with the database of the required category.
We would like to order extra accessories on-site?

Considering you hotel is just next door, it is advisable to keep your money in the hotel safe in your room. Carry loose change in small denominations as change can be a nuisance.
