Following an intensive two-day workshop, participating NANTA-accredited Abuja travel agents officially received their certification as Magical Kenya Travel Experts. The workshop was held at the sidelines of the 61st UNWTO-CAF Meeting in Abuja.
During the training sessions, the team from Kenyan Tourism Board engaged with Travel Agents in Abuja, showing them the skills and techniques needed to sell Kenya as a destination. They ensured Nigerian travel agents had the latest, up-to-date information on how to get the best deals and experiences for their clients when they visit Magical Kenya.
“Nigeria – a country with over 180 million people – has been the focus of international businesses, markets and tourist destinations in the last years. What better way for the Kenyan government to reach the travelling Nigerian public than to train the travel agents who serve as middlemen between these destinations and the people,” said Uhunamure Erhahon, NANTA Public Secretary for the Abuja Zone.
The National President of NANTA, Benard Bankole, surprised delegates with his presence on the first day of the training. He thanked the Kenya Tourism Board for their support and congratulated the NANTA Abuja Zone for facilitating the workshop.
The intensive workshop came to an end on Wednesday when qualifying agents were awarded Magical Kenya Travel Experts Certificates.
The training ended with a vote of thanks by the NANTA Vice President of the Abuja Zone, Amb. Kayode Adeshola followed by a cocktail party.
