Kenya is playing a critical role as hub for Business opportunities especially in the hospitality industry in Uganda. This is due to the presence of a National carrier (Kenya Airways) that does frequent flights into Uganda, bringing in Business people and Tourists and also Mombasa Port which facilitates imports and exports.
The above statement was made by Jean Philippe Bittencourt, The General Manager Sheraton Kampala/Djibouti during an interface with Kenyan based customers at a reception held at Sankara Hotel in Nairobi, on Thursday 27th October. The event brought together bookers, Travel Agents and CEOs of notable companies in Kenya most of who are regular customers at Sheraton Kampala and Djibouti.
“Uganda is currently undergoing economic enhancement and Tourism is playing very important role in driving the country into the much anticipated middle income economy status. The Sheraton Kampala Hotel has positioned itself as a key player, offering first class hospitality services not only to regional visitors but internationally. Kenya on the other hand, has remained our single most valuable hub, which is why we are here to say, Asante Sana for trusting in our services”, Bittencourt said.
Bittencourt hailed his associates in Kenya for the business, as well as creating more awareness about the 2 facilities in Kampala and Djibouti. He also received feedback from them on the experience they have with the 2 properties and what Sheraton can do to get more business from that Market.
Sheraton Kampala Hotel which is making 50 years next year, has remained a key player in the hospitality industry in Uganda, offering great ambience, world class services in terms of catering and accommodation coupled with ultimate relaxation amenities.
