Rwanda has been ranked by the International Congress and Convention Association (ICCA) among Africa’s most popular conference and events destinations on the continent.

Rwanda Ranked Among Top Conference Destinations In Africa

Among the drivers for this initiative include improved visa regimes, safety, security, and investment in hospitality infrastructure.

The body ranked Rwanda, and specifically Kigali, third continentally, for capacity to accommodate international meetings and events, behind Cape Town of South Africa, and Casablanca of Morocco.

ICCA represents the world’s leading suppliers in handling, transporting and accommodating international meetings and events.

The ranking, which was announced on May 7, is based on the number of association meetings taking place regularly, rotating between at least three different countries and with at least 50 participants.

The association considered high-level conferences such as Africa Organization for Research and Training in Cancer (AORTIC), Board Meeting of the Global Fund (BMGF), Annual Tourism Conference of the Africa Travel Association (ATA), and Annual General Assembly of the African Airlines Association (AFRAA) among others.

Rwanda is currently hosting over 4,000 delegates attending the Transform Africa Summit 2018.

The national carrier, RwandAir, is currently serving multiple destinations, a move that has considerably improved accessibility to the country.

A number of high-level summits are set to be hosted in Kigali this year including the FIFA Council Meeting, while last month, Rwanda was chosen to host the 2020 edition of the Commonwealth Heads of State and Government Meeting (CHOGM).
