Nairobi is among cities in four African countries named as top destinations for global corporate meetings due to its high class hotels and quality of services.
Meetings, events, and hospitality technology firm, Cvent Supplier Network which released its annual lists of the top cities for meetings and events worldwide singled out the city as a much-sought after location.
The year-long analysis conducted between January 2017 and December 2017 said select cities in South Africa, Egypt and Morocco also made it to the 390-city list after 11,000 cities across the Caribbean and Latin America, Middle East and Africa as well as Canada and Europe were evaluated.
“When we first launched Top Destinations in 2012, the only cities highlighted were located in the United States. Now, six years later, Top Destinations includes six lists covering every region in the world,” said Cvent Hospitality Cloud vice president of marketing Chris McAndrews.
Nairobi has in recent years hosted presidential delegations attending global events with KICC’s ballrooms, conference halls and open grounds used for the government-to-government events
