EatOut CEO and Metta Founding Member, Mikul Shah who last year sat on a panel along side Facebook’s Nicola Mendelsohn (Vice President EMEA) at DMEXCO in Cologne Germany, added “We wanted to leverage our relationship with Facebook and invited them to speak directly to our clients. Our aim has always been to build Nairobi as a world class dining destination and it is important that our clients keep up with marketing trends worldwide.”

EatOut, who recently launched in Kampala Uganda, plan to host a series of events in 2017 for the hospitality sector across the region.

‘We’re confident that we will bring back Facebook and some our other international partners to work with us in Nairobi. The industry has come a long way in the last few years and it’s important that we continue to collaborate with the various stakeholders of the sector,” said Michelle Slater GM at EatOut Kenya.
