Magical Kenya Travel Expo (MKTE) 2017 – a roaring success

By Sally Fernandes

It was an absolute pleasure to attend the Magical Kenya Travel Expo (MKTE) from 03-05 October 2017. The JWS team were out in force for the three action-packed days and we were delighted to see so many visitors to our stand. Our aim was to combine business with pleasure, so in between our conversations around the JWS Safari Range (the original Safari suite comprising General, Motor and Health Insurance), our guests were able to enjoy a few games of River Rush and a well-earned drink at our Safari Bar come the end of the day.

MKTE is well on its way to becoming the largest travel expo in East Africa and there was an undeniable atmosphere of positivity and optimism as the tourism industry in Kenya and its neighbouring countries has begun to pick up momentum once more! From high end lodges, restaurants and hotels to safari vehicle providers, travel agents, airlines and tour operators the list of travel and tourism businesses who were exhibiting goes on and we were certainly kept busy during our 3 days at the venue.

Thank you to everyone who visited our site, including clients, dignitaries and many new faces, we hope to see you all again in 2018! We would also like to thank all of our existing clients for your continued support.
