‘AMEX‘ aims to become one of Africa’s leading MICE exhibitions and trade fairs to put the spotlight on to the many locations and facilities which exist across Africa. With vastly improved air connections by leading African airlines like Kenya Airways and a host of foreign carriers from Europe, the Middle East / Gulf and Asia is Nairobi eminently suited to be a destination of choice for organizers of Meetings, Incentives, Conventions and Events. Pre- and post conference tours offer a wide range of world class beach resorts from Malindi all the way to the coastline south of Mombasa, and the award winning beaches of Watamu or Diani supplement the experience of a big game safari into one of the many Kenyan national parks, teeming with wildlife.
