Mombasa to host Magical Kenya Expo 2015

Great news as the port city of Mombasa will host next year’s 5th edition of the annual Magical Kenya Travel Expo (MKTE) in October. MKTE is an annual, international tourism exhibition organised by the Kenya Tourism Board (KTB) that attracts participation from local and international trade partners.

Atta will, for the second time, be exhibiting at the MKTE and hope that many members will join us on the stand.

KTB Managing Director Mr Muriithi Ndegwa said plans are afoot to have the event, which has traditionally been held in Nairobi at the Kenyatta International Convention Centre (KICC), be staged in Mombasa to show full support to Coast tourism.

Also KTB announced that the board in conjunction with its parent ministry of East African Affairs, Commerce and Tourism and private stakeholders will launch a campaign to encourage international charter airlines from the Czech Republic, Italy, Poland and Continental Europe to start flights to Kenya.  The new move is meant to shore up support and ensure demand for passengers keen on sampling the Coast destination. “We know the government has put in place necessary security measures, some of which are evident in the way the Coast destination has been secured over the festive period and even beyond,” Ndegwa said.
