The Betting Control and Licensing Board, responsible for supervising, regulating, and licensing igaming operators in Kenya, has recently moved its offices to the ACK Garden Annex situated in Upperhill, Nairobi, Kenya.
This new location offers a more formal setting for the board to deliver its services and for B2C gaming operators in Kenya to access the board’s services.
Nairobi, the bustling capital city of Kenya, is known for its vibrant and diverse business landscape. In the heart of the city’s central business district, the Betting Control and Licensing Board (BCLB) has long operated from its offices at KCS House along Mama Ngina Street. However, in a move to provide a more presentable location for service delivery and to host B2C operators in the country, the BCLB has recently relocated to the ACK Garden Annex, located at Upperhill along 1st Ngong Avenue, 7th floor.
The new office space at ACK Garden Annex provides a formal setting environment that is ideal for conducting business with B2C operators. The move signals the BCLB’s commitment to upholding professional standards and meeting the expectations of industry players. The new location is not only more presentable but also offers a range of conveniences for both operators and visitors alike.
One of the immediate benefits of the relocation is ample parking space. Unlike the previous location at KCS House, finding parking in the vicinity of the ACK Garden Annex is no longer a hassle. This makes the new office more accessible for those commuting via private vehicles and eliminates the stress of searching for parking spaces in the busy city center.
Accessibility has also been greatly improved with the move to Upperhill. The new location is well-connected by both public and private means of transportation. Commuters can easily access the ACK Garden Annex via public buses, matatus, or ride-hailing services. This will save significant time for industry players who need to visit the BCLB offices frequently.
Distractions have always been a challenge in the city center due to various external factors, such as hawking and street vendors. However, the new location at ACK Garden Annex offers a more serene and focused environment. This provides a conducive space for conducting meetings, presentations, and other important business activities without unnecessary interruptions.
The relocation marks a significant step towards providing a more presentable and convenient location for hosting B2C operators. The new office space not only offers a formal setting environment but also enhances accessibility and convenience and eliminates distractions. Paired with the recent website upgrade, the BCLB is well-positioned to cater to the needs of local, regional, and global investors in the sports betting industry.
The news comes hot on the heels of the board’s recent website upgrade. The website now boasts additional features, such as a whistle-blowing option and a platform for reporting complaints directly to the board. This enhancement demonstrates the commitment of the BCLB to enhance transparency, accountability, and stakeholder engagement within the industry.
Furthermore, the newly revamped website showcases a brand new colorful template, signaling the BCLB’s dedication to providing services of international standards. This is particularly important in the ever-growing sports betting industry in Kenya, which attracts both local and global investors. By adopting a more user-friendly and visually appealing website, the BCLB aims to cement its position as a top regulatory body, attracting more players and investments into the country.
