"This is a very good event that is using a lot of technology right from when you enter the exhibition in terms of registration and collection of certificates. The workshops are very modern - they talk about modern services that means green buildings. Currently, there are very few green buildings in Kenya. This exhibition includes all technology from agriculture, industrial or even education – it includes everything," said Maina Kimuhu, Engineer, MAK Consulting Engineers Ltd.
