Kigali Ranked 2nd Most Popular Destination in Africa for International Events
Kigali is the second most popular destination in Africa for international meetings and events; this is according to the International Congress and Convention Association.
It jumped one position up from last year where it emerged third behind Cape Town and Marrakesh in Morocco. Cape Town (South Africa) was ranked first in 2019.
The rankings were based on several association meetings taking place regularly (annually, biannually), rotating between at least three different countries and with at least 50 participants.
Kigali hosted 26 association meetings including high-level conferences such the 4th Gender Summit, the Mo Ibrahim Governance Weekend, the GSMA Mobile 360 Series Africa, the meeting of the African Society of Human Genetics, the Africa Smart Grid Forum, and the International Conference on Family Planning.
The country recorded 38,745 delegates in 2018, up from 28,308 in 2017.
