Local hotel chain, PrideInn Group of Hotels is looking to host five international conferences over the next 12 months, affirming its confidence and robust capacity to handle mega meetings.
PrideInn is gearing up to attract international conferences to populate its growing conference facilities at the Coast and in Nairobi and strategically positioning the brand as the stopping point for mega meetings in Kenya.
“Local and international corporate brands confidence on our conference and convention offerings shows that we know how things are done and how strong we are in what we do best, conferencing. This has boosted our reputation in the market segment,” added Mr. Noorani.
Kenya is experiencing a steady growth in tourist arrivals for meetings, incentives, conferences and exhibitions (MICE) over the past few years largely driven by strong investor confidence and strategic positioning of Kenya as a gateway to East Africa.
Similarly, planned inaugural daily flights from Nairobi to New York and latest ranking of Nairobi as top travelers choice across the globe, the hotel’s management say will boost traffic to local hotels and spur growth in the MICE segment.
Nairobi has been voted third best destination on the rise by millions of travelers for being the safari capital of Africa by US travel website, TripAdvisor. Travelers described Nairobi as an energetic modern city that serves as a fascinating introduction to both wildlife and nightlife.
TripAdvisor recently endorsed Nairobi urging holidaymakers to visit the city. It said that the city is safe to walk in and easy modes of transport make other places of interest accessible.
