Exhibitors turn up the creativity knob
The exhibiting companies that featured at the 4th Ideal Interiors Expo had one thing in mind: creativity. They came, they created and they conquered.
A lot of work, investment and resources went to the entire process of ensuring their stalls were aesthetically appealing, and their products glittering in the designs they had decided to apply.
Most of the exhibitors constructed their exhibition stands, therefore they didn’t need the shell schemes for support.
Almost 80 per cent of the exhibitors came with the objective to demonstrate their capacity in various divergent ways, but most significantly, they did it with style. The visitors were not disappointed. There was something to savour at every exhibition stand.
Most of the designs that featured at the expo were a showcase of the new trends emerging in the industry, and the creative manner in which they were outlaid was outstanding.
We take a look at some of the exhibiting firms that prompted such a mouthwatering conversation during the expo both at the venue and in the industry at large.
Ramara Ltd – The firm, which is known for exemplary locally-made furniture raised the bar with an exquisite design that featured some of their signature furniture for the living room, the lounge, the bar, bedroom and a study room.
The firm went further to give a beautiful wine rack through a raffle that was conducted during the Awards Ceremony, and won by one of the cameramen contracted to capture the expo. Ramara emerged the overall winner and the people’s choice during the awards.

The Ideal Interiors Expo continues to attract participation from the wider East African region, and this is prompting the exhibitors to consider venturing beyond the Kenyan borders for opportunities available in the other markets.
