Mastercard, a global technology corporation, has agreed to a three-year agreement with the Kenya Tourism Board (KTB), which will use multiple Mastercard channels, including its platform, to boost tourism growth in Kenya.

Through the tech’s Data Insights Capabilities, KTB will be able to plan, execute, and optimize its campaign reports by enhancing transparency on tourism trends, anonymised traveller profiles, and economic effect, which is a first for Mastercard in Africa.

The global technology business will investigate a loyalty and rewards program to improve tourism and boost the effectiveness of destination marketing initiatives, including campaign strategy and execution, as part of the cooperation.

Furthermore, the MoU provides Mastercard holders with access to information on Kenya that can enhance their travel experiences.

On the platform, the worldwide corporation and KTB also seek to add personalized vacation packages, including bush, city, and beach experiences, as well as brand campaigns, to supplement tourism recovery efforts.
