World Travel Awards Coming to Kigali

Share it

Kigali will welcome World Travel Awards for the first time in history, with the Africa Gala Ceremony 2017 scheduled to take place on 10th October.

Kigali known for its cleanliness and warm hospitality is ranked among the most attractive African capitals. World Travel Awards President and Founder, Graham Cooke, said: “It will be an honour for the World Travel Awards to visit Rwanda for the first time, later this year.”

“The heart of Africa, Rwanda has become rightfully known for its spectacular scenery – think thundering waterfalls, towering mountains and virgin rainforests – and rare wildlife. This is a fantastic opportunity for Rwanda to claim its rightful place as Africa’s rising star.”

World Travel Awards Africa Gala Ceremony 2017 will be hosted at Radisson Blu Hotel & Convention Centre – which features the first convention centre in Rwanda with room for up to 5,000 delegates – alongside the Africa Hotel Investment Forum (AHIF) and AviaDev Africa (10-12 October).

The leading hotel investment conference that connects business leaders from the international and local markets, driving investment into tourism projects, infrastructure and hotel development across Africa, AHIF (www.africa-conference.com) is attended by the highest calibre international hotel investors of any conference in Africa.

Meanwhile AviaDev Africa (www.aviationdevelop.com) is a unique event bringing together airports, airlines, governments, industry suppliers and tourism authorities to determine the future air connectivity and infrastructure development of Africa. The event provides an opportunity for the aviation and hotel development communities to share intelligence on their future plans, catalysing tourism development on the continent.

Jonathan Worsley, Chairman, Bench Events, said: “I’m delighted that the World Travel Awards has chosen to hold its Africa ceremony on the main stage at AHIF.  The combination of AHIF for hotel investment, AviaDev for aviation route planning and the WTA for excellence in travel, all happening at the same time and in the same place, is bound to focus more attention on the importance of a successful travel and hospitality industry to the economic future of Africa – and that has to be a good thing.”
