The Magical Kenya Travel Expo (MKTE) is a B2B trade show organised by our partner On Show Solutions for whom we handle the MKTE social media. This year we also took over the MKTE emailers to hosted buyers, exhibitors, hosted media, and trade.

In working on the mailers we shared some interesting information on Kenya with the international buyers ahead of their arrival in Kenya. Over the next little while, we will share this with you as well.
