Formerly known as the Ecotourism & Sustainable Tourism Kenya Forum, this prestigious event has been proudly hosted by Ecotourism Kenya since 1998, with notable editions in 2002, 2005, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2012, and 2018.

The ESTF 2024 brings together professionals from tourism, hospitality, conservation, and leisure sectors, along with government representatives and organizations, to collectively explore and advance sustainable tourism practices. Over the years, this forum has significantly contributed to enhancing our understanding of sustainable tourism and its impact on Kenya’s vibrant tourism industry.

The 2024 Theme

This year’s theme, “Accelerating the Shift Towards Sustainable Tourism,” signals a pivotal moment for the industry. It emphasizes the critical need to expedite the transition towards sustainable practices, ensuring minimal environmental impact, fostering social inclusivity, driving economic growth, and safeguarding cultural heritage across Kenyan destinations. The ESTF 2024 aims to catalyze tangible progress and transformative change, shaping a more sustainable future for tourism in Kenya. The theme further breaksdown into six sub-topics, that will be unveiled later. The sub-topics explore different facets within sustainable tourism. The one and half days of the forum has plenty in store such as panel discussions, an exhibition, networking sessions, interactive group discussions and so much more.

Don’t miss out on this unique opportunity to participate as a sponsor, exhibitor, attendee, or speaker. Whether you’re looking to showcase your brand, share insights, network with industry leaders, or learn from experts, there’s something for everyone at ESTF 2024.
