History Made as 2018 SKAL Congress Opens in Mombasa, Kenya  18th Oct 2018

The much anticipated 2018 Skal Congress has opened its doors in Mombasa Kenya with more than 500 delegates descending on the Kenyan coastal city for the annual jamboree.

It is the first time that the Skal congress is taking place and the travel, tourism and hospitality industry in Kenya is excited.

Delegates, both local and international are in Mombasa for the congress dubbed Congress on the Beach at the Pride Inn Paradise and Resort in Mombasa. The annual four-day event which will end on 21st October is one of the world's largest congregation of tourism stakeholders.

According to chairman of the Local Organising Committee (LOC), Mr. Mehboob Harunani a get together party will be held for the over 500 Skal delegates at the historical Fort Jesus Museum, Mombasa later in the evening with Tourism and Wildlife Cabinet Secretary, Najib Balala and Mombasa County Governor, Ali Hassan Joho present. ''We have lined up what is billed an unforgettable night of welcome event that promises to unravel the true Kenyan hospitality treat for all our visitors,'' Harunani said.

"Members will have the opportunity to meet with experts who will offer insights into trends and emerging technologies in the travel and tourism market, plus finding ways to improve the business and stay competitive in the current economic climate," stated the SKAL President Susanna Saari.

Kenya Tourism Federation (KTF), the largest umbrella body that bring together all tourism lobby groups in the country reckons that hosting the event would give Kenya the much needed international publicity and exposure that destination Mombasa so requires.

The ongoing 79th edition of Skal International World Congress in Mombasa emphasizes Kenya’s position as a conference, MICE and investment destination.

We at KATA welcome all the delegates to the magical Kenya and wishes them a pleasant stay.
