There will also be business expos and summer tour experiences during the festival. Already the festival organisers have been engaging beauty queens in Africa to help market brand the continent that side.
David Muwanga, organiser's team member said, "The Festival team has engaged the reigning beauty queens in Africa as one of the Faces of "Africa is the future "campaign," he said.
"This is to help in marketing their respective brands (countries) to the American public. These include current Miss Uganda Zahara Mohammed Nakiyaga, Miss Kenya Charity Njeri Mwangi, Miss Tanzania Universe Lorraine Marriott, Miss Rwanda 2016 Jolly Mutesi and Miss Ethiopia World Kisanet Teklehaimanot. We shall also have a presentation on Tourism sites in Uganda from the Uganda Tourism Board whom we are still hoping to buy our idea. North America is the number one tourist source to East Africa,"Muwanga said.
