Sunbird Tourism plc has commenced the construction of a state-of-the-art Conference Centre in Salima, with an investment of K8 billion.

Located adjacent to the luxury lakeside resort, Sunbird Waterfront, and the Lakeside Premier Resort, Sunbird Livingstonia, the Conference Centre is slated to open for business by December 2024.

The facility aims to elevate the customer experience for conference and event delegates, aligning with global trends in the hospitality industry.

The Conference Centre will strategically elevate Sunbird Waterfront and Sunbird Livingstonia as the premier providers of hospitality for large-scale conferences and entertainment events in the Lakeshore area of Salima district.

Featuring a 500-seater main conferencing arena equipped with modern and state-of-the-art facilities, the facility will have a total conference capacity of 840, including 6 breakaway rooms accommodating between 20 to 100 delegates each.

Additionally, the center will house a 200-seater restaurant, promising an enhanced dining experience for guests.

“Our focus on investment through product development and improvement remains a priority in our strategy with the objective of improving customer experience and ensuring that our brand remains the preferred hospitality provider,” Sunbird Tourism plc Chief Executive Samuel Mwale said.
