Starting 6th November 2017, Team Uganda made up of 20 private companies and four government agencies are exhibiting at stall AH100 at the Excel International Convention Centre in London Docklands.
“As a country, we are going into London riding on the endorsements from global media. Rough Guides, a top travel publication in the UK, put Uganda at the top of countries to visit in 2017, and we believe we have more for 2018,” says Stephen Asiimwe, the chief executive officer at the Uganda Tourism Board (UTB).
Uganda is showcasing its great weather, wildlife, culture, heritage, investment opportunities and unique location as the ultimate destination under the Pearl of Africa brand.
According to the World Travel & Tourism Council (WTTC) which monitors global tourism trends, Uganda tourism receipts and arrivals are projected to have a 7.1 average growth over the next 10 years.
The Government of Uganda facilitates the process by booking exhibition space, setting up the exhibition stand and opening an online platform through which the tourism business make appointments with counterparts. Other activities booked include seminars and training workshops for the business owners.
The meeting with the Indians of Ugandan origin is being coordinated by the Uganda High Commission led by Amb. James Moto.
