Conference tourism on the rise in Ethiopia

Published on : Thursday, January 11, 2018

EthiopiaAs per a recent study conducted by Dawit Tesfaye under a title ‘Analysis of the Development of Convention Tourism in Addis Ababa,’ the conference tourism sector is growing steadily to become a dominant player in the Ethiopian economy.

 
Although there is no well documented evidence about when conference tourism began in Ethiopia, history shows that it became popular after the construction of the African Union Hall and the United Nations Conference Centers in the capital.

 
Addis Ababa has been paying a lot of attention to the tourism sector due to its considerable economic benefit due to the fact that leaders and other conference participants are increasingly seeking the Ethiopian center as the convention destination now than ever.

 
Various authorities including the UNWTO have witnessed the enormous potential of the tourism industry at large and convention tourism sub-sector in particular in Ethiopia.

 

Business tourism, one of the components of conference tourism, comprises conference or convention and events and it has much potential for growth in Ethiopia.
