Kenya has established its first ever convention bureau after the government indicated it is planning to build a second national convention centre.

The new Kenya Convention Bureau will be tasked with increasing meetings and incentives business, which was previously left to the Kenyatta International Convention Centre and Kenya Tourism Board.

At the same time, the government has flagged plans to build a second convention centre on the Kenyan coast at Mombasa, to help grow the meetings market outside Nairobi.
