KIGALI, (CAJ News) – AviaDev Africa, which aims to determine the future of air connectivity in the continent, will be launched in Rwanda later this

Scheduled for October, it is a unique platform bringing together airlines, airports, and hotel and hospitality investors for the first time.

Leading airline, airport and hotel executives, alongside government representatives, will be able to explore the crucial link between aviation and hotel investment and discuss potential new airline routes in exclusive one-to-one meetings.

The inaugural forum on aviation route planning and development will run in parallel with the prestigious Africa Hotel Investment Forum (AHIF), providing government and industry with a valuable opportunity to take a strategic approach to the expansion of travel across the continent.

Jonathan Worsley, Chairman of Bench Events, which organises AHIF, said, “AviaDev Africa will be a valuable opportunity for leading executives from aviation and hotel development to have some serious and fruitful discussions on how to develop the future connectivity of the continent,” said Worsley.

AHIF is the premier hotel investment conference in Africa, attracting over 500 high-calibre executives from 45 countries, as well as key Government representatives.

Belise Kariza, Chief Tourism Officer at the Rwanda Development Board, said they wanted to showcase Rwanda as a key destination to do business.

“The AHIF conference is a vital part of that, and the addition of a forum  focused on aviation developments, AviaDev, provides an important platform for the aviation and hotel sectors to discuss future development projects and forge new relationships,” Karinza said.
