RDBThe Pearl of Africa Tourism expo in Kampala, Uganda, ended yesterday. The Rwanda Development Board (RDB) and RwandAir won excellence awards. RDB and RwandAir won the best tourism board exhibitor and best airline, respectively. This expo is an annual event organized by the Uganda Tourism Board (UTB), which assembles travel agents, tour operators, hoteliers, destination managers and other service providers along the tourism value chain.

According to Philibert Ndandali, RDB representative, “This Award gives pride to Rwanda as a tourism destination but it also challenges us to keep Rwanda on the world tourism map and work harder to make destination Rwanda more competitive.” To quote Ada Mugyenyi, RwandAir’s country manager for Uganda, “We are so happy for the award. It is a clear manifestation of our mission to provide the best, safe and reliable services in air transportation and making RwandAir the airline of obvious choice in the markets we serve.”

The criteria for the awards included product showcased, branding of stand, hospitality at the stand, entertainment for visitors, and give-away promotional materials. In Rwanda, tourism is the top foreign exchange earner having generated $367 million in 2015.
