Spotlight Nairobi 2017 dates announced

nairobi-001Derek Houston has announced details of his “iconic’ Spotlight on Africa & Indian Ocean Workshops in Nairobi from July 05 -07th.

“This will be our 15th Year of organising Spotlight in Nairobi and it has become a must attend event on the Kenyan Tourism Calendar. Spotlight has always enjoyed the full support of the Kenya Association of Tour Operators (KATO) and KATA (the Kenya Association of Travel Agents).

Nearly 300 Travel consultants attended the June 2016 Spotlight in Nairobi. It has become so popular that we in fact are now having to hold the workshop over two days”.

30 Exhibitors from South Africa, Zimbabwe, Zambia, Ethiopia, Singapore, Tanzania, Uganda, Zanzibar and Seychelles participated in the 2016 workshops. Spotlight is also very popular from the Kenya domestic tourism perspective and 7 Kenyan coastal resorts and major Nairobi hotels exhibited.

As the outbound markets from Dar es Salaam and Kampala are fairly small we are not organising Spotlights there next year –instead we will fly in the top IATA travel agencies from DAR, Kampala and Kigali to attend in Nairobi. We plan to host 15 senior executives in Nairobi.

Spotlight Nairobi 2017 will consist of three events – A VIP cocktail party for the top travel agency directors  at Dusit 2 on Wednesday 05 July , followed by a 4 hour workshop in the Westlands area on Thursday 06 July and another session at RadissonBlu Upper Hill on Friday 07th July.

Houston Travel Marketing’s 2017 Africa Spotlight Series will visit 7 cities including Harare, Lusaka, Gaborone, Luanda, Nairobi and Maputo.
