The second annual Animation Expo that took place on Saturday, March 31, was sponsored by the Kenya Film Commission.
The Expo incorporated film producers as well as animators showcasing their work, and also encouraged exhibitors to have sample works as well as merchandise of their film and animation products. 
The Kenya Film Commission recognizes the importance of this area of new media and is working on establishing the Animation Expo as a leading forum where artistes are able to showcase their work, network within the media industry and with financiers and also receive information to build their business skills. 

A number of educational institutions have begun to include animation as part of the courses that they offer, indicating the interest of the youth in this exciting area of the media.
The key target for the expo includes investors, distributors, corporate companies, content acquisition managers (from broadcasting houses) students, creative industry professionals and those interested in local content.
