While the event will take place in Nairobi, as part of the Magical Kenya Travel Expo (MKTE), the content of the early morning meeting at the Sarova Stanley Hotel is all about East Africa, East African cooperation, and to promote more regional travel between the East African Community member states.
The ‘East Africa Tourism Stakeholders Forum’ aims to create a better understanding as to how the entire region can benefit from increased travel of locals and expatriates visiting tourism attractions in neighboring countries, from the shores of lakes Kivu and Tanganyika to the shores of the Indian Ocean, and all the national parks in between.
This year’s Magical Kenya Travel Expo, the fourth since the event was created, will, for the second year running, see a symposium and workshops take place at the Kenyatta International Conference Centre (KICC), discussing a range of topics of interest to the tourism industry in not just Kenya but the wider region, giving an indicator of how strong the region is to the hosted buyers from around the world, who are flown into Kenya courtesy of the Kenya Tourism Board, Kenya Airways, and a number of participating partner companies whose contributions have made the trip to Nairobi and to selected national parks possible.
Expect live on-site reporting of the official opening of MKTE 2014, the ongoing showcasing of Kenya’s attractions, and from the symposium, including the event at the Sarova Stanley on the morning of October 10.
