Making it to the 2019 Eco Warrior Awards Long List recently marked the 6th time Kenya Geographic was getting a prestigious award nomination this year. The journey began early this June when we received a triple nomination in this year’s International Travel Awards for Africas’s Best Online Travel Agency, Kenya’s Best Online Travel Agency and Nairobi’s Best Online Travel Agency.
The International Travel Awards mark the pinnacle of achievement in the hospitality industry after the World Travel Awards. Nominees gain recognition as guests and industry players from 120 countries honour them for their excellence across over 100 different categories. Voting is still ongoing and you can vote for us in the 3 categories we were nominated for.
In August we did it again with a double nomination at the Africa MICE Awards for the MICE Tours and Travel Solution of the Year and Business Tourism Blogger of the Year awards. The Africa MICE Awards recognise persons and brands that organise business events and whose expertise and service levels meet global standards. Voting is still going on and we would be delighted if you could honour us with yours.
This is the second time we are getting a nomination at the Eco Warrior Awards having been a finalist in 2016. The annual event recognizes efforts, innovations and exceptional achievements towards promoting responsible tourism which directly conserves the natural environment while supporting local communities through mutually beneficial and equitable partnerships.
This year’s event is running on the theme, ‘Tourism Jobs and the Green Economy: A Better Future for All‘ and will mark the 14th edition of the Eco Warrior Award Ceremony & Gala Night. The ceremony and gala night will take place on Thursday 26th September 2019 at the newly refurbished Nairobi Serena Hotel on the eve of UNWTO’s World Tourism Day which will happen on Friday 27th September 2019.
Our star-studded journey has been an eventful one filled with a mixture of emotions but it could never have been possible without the support of an amazing team at Kenya Geographic, our loyal customers, guest bloggers and the overwhelming favour from God which singularly defines our DNA.
