- From the humble beginnings, until Kenya gained independence in 1963, the Society was called Royal Agricultural Society of Kenya and the Queen was its Patron. In 1964, the Society became known as The Agricultural Society of Kenya, with Mzee Jomo Kenyatta as the Patron. Today President Mwai Kibaki is the Patron. It is from the above Royal and national inspiration, coupled with clear objectives that the Society has covered one century in total dedication to serve the agricultural sector. In 1972, it was able to host the first All Africa Trade Fair. In 1986, the first Preferential Trade Area (PTA) Trade Fair was incorporated during the National Show, attesting to the fact that the show has already attained international status with regular participation from overseas countries. It became a trade fair in 2002. And now offers opportunity from regional, continental, and global exhibitors to display and demonstrate their services and products. It also offers all show goers an opportunity to meet a number of people from different countries and background, hence offering them a chance to exchange ideas and experience, what is useful to them in their everyday life.
