DRIVE FOR DOMESTIC TOURISM USING MASS MEDIA
According to the UBC Deputy MD Maurice Mugisha,
“This is a partnership that provides great opportunity to drive the domestic tourism agenda to take Ugandans to various breathtaking destinations around Uganda through our airwaves. This also ties in with our duties as a National Broadcaster and gives us the chance to share locally made and generated organic content that is unique and very appealing to our viewers. We are therefore happy to partner with Breathtaking Uganda and we encourage all Ugandans to look out for this content on all UBC TV channels as well as our digital platforms.”
Maurice Mugisha further added that,
“We also encourage government and private sector agencies in the tourism value chain to support this initiative through advertising so that we can sustainably continue to give our viewers high-quality evergreen content that will live for many years to come”
