Dear Esteemed Participants,
I hope this message finds you well. It is with a deep sense of responsibility and anticipation that we announce the postponement of the East Africa Commercial Kitchens Expo 2023, initially scheduled for 18-20 October 2023. This decision, though difficult, is catalyzed by our unwavering commitment to delivering an event that not only meets but exceeds the expectations of all our participants, including the over 2000+ dedicated attendees who registered, the resilient exhibitors who committed despite economic challenges, the 30+ visionary chefs poised for our discussion panels, and the future culinary stars from various culinary schools eager for mentorship.
We are excited to inform you that the event you’ve been looking forward to will now be held in 2024, with an enhanced vision and rebranded as the “East Africa Chef Expo and Summit 2024.” Formerly known as the East Africa Commercial Kitchens Expo, this reimagined summit promises to be the region’s paramount congregation for culinary brilliance and commercial kitchen innovation.
Here’s why the East Africa Chef Expo and Summit 2024 will be worth the wait:

- Mentorship and Growth: For our budding chefs from culinary schools, this is more than a summit; it’s a stepping stone into the industry. Learn from the best, absorb knowledge, and kickstart your journey in the culinary world with unparalleled guidance.
- Business Development: For exhibitors and business owners, this is a golden opportunity to increase product visibility and engage with a targeted audience eager for the latest products and services your company offers.
While we understand the anticipation that was building for the 2023 event, we firmly believe that this postponement and rebranding will ensure a more robust, dynamic, and enriching experience for all our attendees.
