1. How did the idea of taking part in this trade fair come about, considering the somewhat uncertain period for personal travel?
Egypt is a country that has experienced strong growth in recent years, and statistics predict a 10% increase between 2021-2022 in the construction sector. Anyone who has visited this country will have noticed the changes in recent years. The Covid-19 epidemic has slowed down this process but has not stopped it.
If you look at data, there are numerous projects to modernise airports, ports and transport networks and to build schools, hospitals, shopping centres and entertainment facilities.
Bearing in mind also that the Suez Canal is an almost obligatory route for exports to Asian countries, participation and presence in this country are becoming increasingly strategic.
2. What does it mean for Campisa to take part in this fair, a reference point for the construction and infrastructure sector in Egypt? What projects have you already concluded and are you carrying out in this country?
For Campisa, being present at the Big 5 Egypt at a particular time like the one we are experiencing is synonymous with solidity. We are really growing on several fronts: from the acquisition of important orders at national and international level, to the opening of new foreign branches, to the expansion of the production site with investments aimed at improving production capacity and product quality.
Our presence at the fair essentially aims to achieve two objectives:
1. the consolidation of Campisa’s relationship with the local dealer Mechanic L.L.C.;
2. confirmation and visibility of Campisa’s local presence in Egypt in the eyes of general contractors.
We have already been working for years in the food sector in cold logistics in this country. Now we would like to conquer other market shares in the logistics sector.
