UNES LTD participated in the just concluded Book Fair and Exhibition organized by Kabarak University on 13-15th September, 2017 at Kabarak University Ground in Nakuru County. It brought about major competitors under one roof where the Deans, Head of Departments, Librarian, Staff and Students got to identity and purchase books of their choice and even recommend the much needed titles to their libraries and departments. UNES had a cutting edge and made a lasting parting shot when it displayed and showcased not only bookstore products but other solution services especially Consultancy, Hospitality, Dental Services and other commercial initiatives as part of its service delivery and customer experience. It extended its market share and communicated a strong presence across the Rift Valley Region with a view of business development and growth.

Traditionally, exposition (expo) or exhibition are normally organized so that companies in a specific industry can come together and showcase or demonstrate their latest products and services, meet with industry partners and customers, study activities of rivals, and examine recent market trends and opportunities.

Kabarak University Book fair and Exhibition was one of its kinds and this marked the beginning of a partnership that will see UNES LTD supply different titles to the institutions including other products and services and extend the consumer patronage in the entire region.
