The LIGHTEXPO AFRICA - International Trade Expo on Residential, Commercial & Industrial Lighting & Accessory Products, Equipment & Machinery is the foremost trade exhibition focusing on the lighting sector in East Africa. The event is held annually in Tanzania and attracts exhibitors from more than 15 countries and visitors from all over East & Central Africa. The trade fair is a key networking platform offering exhibitors an excellent opportunity to explore several countries at one time.
The lighting industry in Tanzania is also a promising and evolving sector, with a potential for off-grid solar solutions to serve a dispersed and largely rural population. Off-grid energy solutions are becoming more affordable and accessible, thanks to technological advancements and innovative business models. A market intelligence study has found that there is a high demand for quality-verified off-grid solar products among the bottom of the pyramid consumers in Tanzania, and that there are opportunities for improving the supply and distribution chains to reach them.
