Design wins the day in Kigali
The Radisson Blu Hotel & Convention Centre, Kigali in Rwanda has been awarded for its iconic architecture and design.

We're excited to share that the Africa Property Investment Summit has recognized the Radisson Blu Hotel & Convention Centre, Kigali for its unique, African-inspired property.

We were delighted to receive an award in the Best Architectural Design and Best Hotel Development category at the recent Africa Property Investment Summit, which took place at the Sandton Convention Centre in Johannesburg, South Africa.

The iconic Kigali Convention Centre (KCC) has been the premium events venue in Rwanda since its opening in 2016 - as well as a hugely popular MICE destination in Africa. With floor space of more than 32,000sqm, the KCC can host more than 5,000 delegates at a time and contains facilities for business, leisure and events. 

The multifaceted design of the hotel complex is what really catches the eye. Reflecting a true Rwandan homestead, the dome-shaped auditorium reproduces a hut in the King’s Palace and boasts a capacity of 2,600 guests. The architectural façade of the 291-room hotel, however, replicates a traditional and colorful weaved basket. 

Despite this nod to the past, the center also boasts cutting-edge technology, high-speed internet, and all audio-visual equipment expected of a world-class facility.

It’s an honor to be recognized for this major achievement. I’d like to thank our investors, partners and other supporters for their exceptional contribution and teamwork on the project.
