Sub-Saharan Africa: Heritage Meets Modernity in Kenya


In partnership with:


Partly bordered by the Indian Ocean and seated on the equator, resides the sweeping landscape of Kenya. The vibrant country, situated on the horn of Africa, is home to cosmopolitan metropolises: bustling Nairobi, diverse Mombasa Island, and serene Kisumu, constituting Kenya’s economy being largest by GDP in South East and Central Africa. The diverse country’s countless natural attractions, including snow-capped Kilimanjaro and expansive deserts and savannahs teeming with wildlife, serve as a perfect backdrop to its kinetic corporate industry.

Kenya, the recent winner of the bid to host Association of Travel Associations (ATA) Congress, looks forward to hosting World Public Relations Forum (WPRF) as well as the SKÅL International Congress later this year.

Key Venues

Kenyatta International Conference Centre

The Kenyatta International Conference Centre (KICC) comfortably accommodates 770 delegates in a three tier auditorium, 2 500 guests in a banqueting style, and 3 500 guests in theatre style. The 28-storey edifice is the tallest peak in the Nairobi skyline. The KICC amphitheatre design resembles that of a traditional African hut, and is equipped with state-of-the-art audiovisual technologies.  Ideally located in the heart of the country’s business district, and the only building in the region with a helipad, the KICC flaunts history, functionality, and modernity as some its appeals as a landmark in Nairobi.

Kenya’s leading spa resort, Enashipai Resort and Spa, boasts six versatile, lavish conference rooms accommodating over 500 guests in U-shape, theatre, ballroom or banqueting style. The resort is located close to a number of the country’s top attractions, including Hell Gates, Mount Longonot, Lake Naivasha and Elementaita.  Leading-edge technology, a prime location, and dedicated conference staff, constitutes quintessential conference venue that is Enashipai Resort and Spa.

Getting to Kenya by Air

Kenya’s flagship airline, Kenya Airlines, offers highly accessible regional and international flights to major airports across the country and world. In addition to 34 local airports providing flights to outlying areas, the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport in Nairobi serves as a base between Central and Southern Africa.

Climate

Coastal regions experience tropical climates, while inland regions enjoy a more arid climate. Being seated on the equator, Kenya generally experiences rain during March, April, October and November, yet plenty of sunshine is enjoyed all year round.
