Kenya told to diversify its tourism productsTuesday, January 13, 2015 > 09:46:25
Kenya’s heavy dependence on traditional beach tourism must be stopped if the country has to increase its global market share, Kenyatta International Convention Centre (KICC) Managing Director Fred Simiyu has said. Simiyu says Kenya must diversify and join some parts of the world that are increasingly becoming leaders in international Trade fairs and exhibitions and in the process generate billions of shillings in their respective countries. For instance, he says, Singapore hosted 3.5 million business visitors, an increase of 3 per cent over 2012 and earned US$5.5 billion in revenue (not counting sightseeing, entertainment and gaming expenditure). Simiyu says it is for this reason that the Ministry of Tourism and Trade, KICC has organised upcoming Meetings, Incentive travel, Conferences and Exhibition (MICE) meeting to be held from January 23, 2015 at the KICC.
