Kenya: Bomas, KICC merger plan in tourism revival strategyBy ATTA®
The government plans to merge the management of its two iconic conferencing facilities in Nairobi in the next two years in efforts to accelerate the recovery of the tourism sector.
The Treasury said it will merge Bomas of Kenya with the Kenyatta International Convention Centre (KICC), including all other public funded meetings, incentives, and conferencing and exhibition venues.
The move is part of the post-recovery strategies to promote tourism which has faced the biggest hit in terms of job losses and income. It is expected to change the operations and the way the Treasury funds the agencies.
KICC is tasked with positioning the country as a favourable destination for travel and exhibitions. Bomas is used for holding events and also host heritage for tourism.
National Treasury also plans to outsource management of Bomas of Kenya and Kenya Utalii College.
