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.
Vishelectric Ltd – The regional lighting powerhouse constructed a beautiful stall that featured some of their modern lighting and lighting fixtures. The exquisite display was a sight to behold, with the ambience created by the lighting stealing the show.
PG Bison – The region’s leading boards firm was at its best, showcasing a unique glimpse of its range of products in a display that stole the hearts of many. PG Bison went further to provide free coffee, tea and chocolate that really appealed to customers. The firm won the Outstanding Customer Care Award.
Antarc Ltd – The firm, which is known for top-notch home and office furniture, showcase some of its latest range of furniture alongside a stunning display of its range of engineered flooring. Antarc was able to put up a mouthwatering display that kept tongues wagging.
Spiegel Interiors – The interior design powerhouse, which is known for some of the best fabric brands from all over the world, featured an elegant showstopper; an exciting and inviting display of some trendy furniture and wallpaper that glittered in the ambience created by the lighting. For sure, Spiegel showed the way in how one could transform interior design in the region to correspond to some of the emerging designs in developed countries overseas.
Quinn Peaks – The ever-present participant at the Ideal Interiors Expo won the hearts of many with a warm display of a bar and a dining set made of wood. Quinn Peaks has often showed a knack for an out-of-the-box thinking, and this indeed earned the firm an award for Exemplary Creativity.
Other firms that did an amazing job included Cornices & Decor, JumboChem, Prafulchandra & Brothers, Sheffield Steel Systems, Karibu Italy, Interiors Centre, Trancewood, Kids Stuff, Crown Marble and Quartz, Cherry Interiors and Thola Glass.
Visitors came from all over the region
The expo attracted visitors not only from Kenya, but also from Uganda, Tanzania and Rwanda, which are key East African countries in terms of interiors business.
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.
The visitor profile was made up of property developers, real estate investors, interior designers, architects, home owners and potential home buyers. Suppliers of interiors products also showed up to determine who they could forge alliances with in the market.
With the quality clientele that came through the expo doors, organizers believe the expo may have found its bearing to move to the next level.
