- Regent (also the Hacienda eco-city Africa’s first eco-city, 2,3,4 flats & bungalows in Mwakirunge – north coast and (under construction) Green House a huge shop /office complex next to Adams Arcade)
- Others were Sedco and Vidmerck

Other exhibitors included a Dubai property company, the Kenya Power & Lighting Company (KPLC) who now have a stima loan for new customers to get loans through Equity Bank to pay for electricity installation/connection charges, Climacento green tech ( who advertise 50% savings on electricity bill through their solar water heater and Mekan Mattress experts (found at Nakumatt)

I once attended an expo at KICC and they were selling "Ambassadorial Villas"; "Luxury Concept Living" etc

Houses worth 8-40Million. I think about 3 years ago.

And they charged me 200 bob to get in. Regret to this day. That 200 bob could have fetched me a half chicken and chips!

It's become a trend of sorts to report and write and blog about the downturn Dubai is witnessing, newspapers are filling up pages with bad news because I think people want to read the bad stuff more right now.
