No Magical Kenya Travel Expo in 2023

Kenya Tourism Board (KTB) wishes to inform all stakeholders that the 13th edition of Magical Kenya Travel Expo (MKTE) 2023 wil not take place this year. Kenya will instead host the 3rd edition of the East African Regional Tourism Expo (EARTE). EARTE is a regional travel fair showcasing the region’s diverse tourism offering to consumers, trade, media, and buyers. The expo is scheduled to take place from 17 to 21 November 2023, in Nairobi. EARTE is held on a rotational basis by member states of the East African Community. The United Republic of Tanzania (URT) hosted the first EARTE in October 2021 in Arusha and the Republic of Burundi hosted the second edition in September 2022 in Bujumbura. The implementation of EARTE is anchored to the East African Community Tourism Marketing Strategy (2021-2025), which is geared towards positioning and marketing the East Africa Community as a leading sustainable tourism destination in Africa.
