    Getting It Right…under the African Sky…

    When it comes to project realisation in Africa, there are hundreds of ways a project can go off track – tight deadlines, miscommunication, under estimating the project requirements and deliverables, inadequate time allocation, misapplied logistics, poor project management and controls.

    So how did ConCept G Exhibitions & Events Get it Right with the German Pavilion in Kenya?
    It serves to confirm that it can indeed be done. It is all in the how and the whom and the answer lies in the foundation phase of the project: Scouting the lie of the land, Projections and Forecasting, Communication, Planning, Preparation, Collaboration with the right logistics partners and local exhibition support company, bringing along the skilled realisation team and a positive, professional, Pro-active approach and follow through.
    If you take the end result of the German Pavilion at into mind, the focus for ConCept G is on quality and full client satisfaction, on allowing contingency factors, preparation, communication and planning - a truly precision project delivery.

    Says Gill Gibbs, CEO, ConCept G: ‘’It is imperative to be sure that your clients know the value that you bring to their business and keep them coming back. All the facets of professional and proficient project build, execution, management and realisation come into play when any project is undertaken by ConCept G. When a project is scheduled out of country and in the continent of Africa, in this specific case, these factors are particularly crucial and the management of the challenges surrounding an African project experience is high on the agenda. The wealth of experience and expertise that we bring to the party as a professional OSPI partner is sorely required out there, such is our full-service and turnkey delivery in all facets of exhibit design and fabrication, with the trust, reliance and reassurance from our clients in the area of exhibition stand construction, no matter where we are in the world.’’

    Getting It Right...in the way your client needs.

    Says Andrew Gibbs, MD, ConCept G, ‘’Our team has achieved a record delivery of the bespoke German Pavilion in Kenya and stand proud to be associated with this project and the quality of our workmanship. A close German translation for getting it right is ‘Bekommen es richtig’. This phrase speaks to the ethos and culture of ConCept G. There is the promise and call of Africa… the continent is not poor, there is business, but there is a lack of ability and efficiency in exploiting, managing and utilising the vast available resources.’’ Andrew comments that the focus of development in Africa should be on manufacturing – this will create job opportunities, alleviate poverty and simultaneously, create focus for the importance of skills transference and development. Says Gibbs, ‘’We have been privy to the specific need for skills transference and enhancement here in Kenya. Development of the infrastructure of Africa should be a prime priority, alongside training and uplifting of human capital to meet the manpower needs of industry and business. Until this transition takes place in Africa, we will continue to bring our diverse skillset and experienced build teams to achieve the project deliverables. Thank you to our logistics team and to our local exhibition support team – the collaboration and partnerships that we have formed through this experience have worked successfully and expertly in the collective interests of the project deliverables. And we managed to uplift the local team and provide hope for the future. The true and final accolade is to the team of ConCept G - Asante sana’’.
