According to a tours and travel study conducted recently, 80% of respondents aged 25 to 70+ said travel improves their general mood and outlook on life.
For any adult, travelling generally represents a perfect mix of a stress reliver, pleasure, curiosity, and recreation. Now think about it, who wouldn’t want to travel when an opportunity arises, right?
On Friday 1st April 2022, Hemingways Travel hosted a memorable cocktail party to celebrate the rebranding of the Sixty Five year old Express Travel Group to Hemingways Travel with its clients, partners and stakeholders in attendance, while unveiling the new brand look: logo, colors and website with a new booking tool. The party was held at the 5-star boutique hotel Hemingways Nairobi, overlooking the iconic silhouette of the Ngong Hills, against the backdrop of the magical views of the Friday sundowner.
Hemingways Group CEO Ross Evans noted that the rebrand and related investment was in response to emerging opportunities for growth and the need to enhance the travelers experience at a time when travel is experiencing unprecedented disruption and changes in needs.
As part of the process, Ross noted that Hemingways Travel would expand its offering to the leisure market to the level it has become renowned for in the corporate travel market as well as leveraging its operations as a premium inbound destination management company.
Guest and clients were treated to an evening of food, drinks, networking and entertainment and a showcase of what Hemingways Travel is all about.
Tourism and Wildlife Cabinet Secretary Hon Najib Balala during the official launch ceremony on Wednesday, lauded the move noting that technology innovation and collaboration did enable the tourism sector to ride the difficult covid period. “Innovation, digitization and expansion to leisure travel is a sure win for Hemingways Travel and any other sector players looking to thrive in the tourism and travel sector as the industry continues to recover from the pandemic,” said CS Balala.
According to the Annual Tourism Sector Performance Report 2021, new vision strategies such as digitization have supported sector recovery and Hemingways Travel has made significant enhancements to its platform to meet changing industry needs.
