What would you do if you woke to the news that 80 beauty queens are coming to Uganda?!. Well The SpyUganda can reliably confirm that this is not a hoax but the gospel truth. This October 2018 Uganda will host over 80 International beauty Queens in a renowned Miss Heritage Universe competition.
Through Mr. Ronnie Nsubuga who won the bid, Uganda is privileged to receive the girls in an initiative aimed at promoting Uganda’s tourism prowess, cultural heritage and a fusion of infrastructural, agricultural and industrial innovations.
The event has been hosted 4 times in South Africa and Zimbabwe and Uganda won the bid arguably because of its unique tourism offering, enviable climate and closeness to other continents in regards to travel and world class hospitability.
The event is slated for two weeks with the grand finale on the 13th October this year. This year’s finals will be Co-hosted by the Ministry of Tourism, Uganda Tourism Board, Uganda Wildlife Education Centre (UWEC), The Uganda Museum and Uganda Wildlife Authority (UWA).
This is also an opportunity for private stakeholders to leverage on sales, invoke brand equity and stimulate Business development through the International Ambassadors to the outside world.
