FOREWORD MINISTER OF TOURISM MESSAGE FROM MINISTRY OF TOURISM CABINET SECRETARY HON. NAJIB BALALA Jambo! Welcome to Magical Kenya! It is, indeed, a pleasure to welcome you to Magical Kenya and the 7th edition of the Magical Kenya Tourism Expo (MKTE). Kenya’s tourism business continues to record an upward trajectory - as we continue to build on partnerships and implement our tourism strategies. Total international arrivals for January to August 2017 by air and sea closed at 635,734 compared to 581,808 in 2016, illustrating a growth of 9.3%. During the period under review, arrivals through JKIA grew by 10.4% to record 577,240 compared to 522,709 in 2016. Moi International Airport Mombasa (MIAM), received 57,588 visitors, compared to 57,219 in 2016, 0.6% growth. In terms of purpose of travel, holiday remains the major reason for travel into Kenya, taking a share of 65% of the total arrivals compared to 75% in 2016. Business contributed 12% of the arrivals in 2017, compared to 9% in 2016. Despite this being an election year there has been continued growth in arrivals from most of our key source markets, attributed to Kenya’s positive positioning in the global arena and sustained marketing campaigns.

8

We are therefore optimistic that tourists will continue to visit Kenya as their holiday or business destination. To realize full potential that the sector has, we have enumerated a number of key strategies as envisioned in our tourism blue print.

• In the long-term, we shall maintain and sustain the existing and new products as well as sustain and grow the existing and new markets. MKTE provides us an opportunity to get insights into our strategies to improve tourism business.

They include and not limited to the following;

I wish to once again wish you a fruitful event as we join hands in taking the tourism sector to greater heights.

• In the short-term we shall work on fixing and improvement existing products and markets. This will entail refreshing the current products that give Kenya a competitive edge particularly beach and safari and re-launching in existing markets. It will lead to more visitors from these markets where Kenya already has a foothold but where there is still immense untapped potential. • In the medium-term, we shall diversify into new products and capture new markets. The diversified product offering will attract additional visitor numbers from diversified markets.

KARIBU KENYA

FOREWORD KENYA TOURISM BOARD CHAIRMAN MESSAGE FROM CHAIR KENYA TOURISM BOARD, JIMI KARIUKI Greeting and Karibu Kenya! On behalf of the people of Kenya and the Kenya Tourism Board, it is a great privilege to welcome you to this year’s Magical Kenya Trade Expo (MKTE). It is a wonderful way to celebrate East Africa – as we host all of you and showcase the beauty of our country and of the African continent. We welcome you with open arms, to the vibrant city of Nairobi and to the cultural melting pot of Kenya and East Africa. Resilience Despite the ever-increasing and unpredictable shocks from terrorist attacks and political instability, to health pandemics and natural disasters, Kenya’s Tourism sector has continued to show its resilience and continues to pique the world’s attention with the recent strong performance showing by our athletic team at the IAAF World U18 Championships – hosted in Kenya’s Capital, Nairobi.

16

While Kenya features a unique and glorious blend of diverse wildlife, landscapes and cultures that are the mainstay of Kenya’s tourism sector, we are keen to grow our tourism numbers through marketing our other lesser known attractions and tourism experiences. Working together with our partners, we have opened our beautiful country to further growth in tourism and remain steadfast in our quest to make Kenya a world-class tourism destination. Bright future for business The outlook for Kenya’s Tourism sector in 2017 remains robust and will continue to be at the forefront of wealth and employment creation in the Kenya’s economy, despite the emergence of a number of challenging headwinds. The United Nations World Tourism Organization (UNWTO) projects international tourist arrivals worldwide to grow at a rate of 3% to 4% in 2017, after a 3.9% increase in 2016, based on the assessment of current trends and the outlook by the UNWTO Panel of Experts, as well as economic prospects. We at the Kenya

Tourism Board intends to aggressively implement most of the marketing and promotional plans to ensure that the country maintains the upward trajectory growth holding other factors constant. Tourism sustainability As more and more tourists choose to go to eco-friendly destinations, I am happy to say that Kenya has created sustainable innovations that minimize the impact of tourism on our environment, reduce and conserve energy, and recycle waste products - innovations that have the potential to spawn new industries, as well as support the creation of new jobs for our people. To the buyers from all over the world: you are in for a treat. There are so many diverse products and exhibitors for you to see and interact with at this year’s MKTE. I encourage you to make full use of all the networking events to interact with exhibitors, to do business and to close deals.

thank you for helping to share the African success story, and for inspiring tourists from all over the world to come and explore our country and Africa as a whole. I am confident that this show will lead to good business deals being closed and to meaningful interactions and engagements between participants. Thank you and Karibu Kenya!

MR. JIMI KARIUKI CHAIRMAN

To the members of the fourth estate,

30 years ago, Coastal recognized this opportunity to move into the tourism industry. Instead of investing in vehicles reliant on major national investments in roads, bridges and tourism infrastructures, Coastal decided to develop a flying safari network capable of accessing the remotest parts of the country, where no roads would yet reach or possibly ever do so. Furthermore, this would allow Coastal to support and sustain like-minded visionaries with ecologically-sustainable camps and low-impact development in far-flung wilderness areas and provide an entirely different perspective on one of the world’s most celebrated tourism destinations.
