Derek Houston has just announced his pre and post ITB ‘Spotlight on Africa and the Indian Ocean’ programme which this year will cover the Netherlands, the Czech Republic, Hungary and Poland, aptly named the Pre and Post ITB Spotlight on Africa & Indian Ocean Island European Roadshow.
Derek said to this correspondent:
‘In conjunction with Anneli Bronkhorst wwtourism in Holland we have organized Spotlight roadshows in Holland for the past 7 years.The Netherlands, as you know is a very important market for Africa and the Indian Ocean Islands. Spotlight Amsterdam has now become a must attend function for the Dutch Tour operators who sell Africa/Indian Ocean. The event will take place in Amsterdam Monday March 04th – Marriott Amsterdam.
This will be followed by Central Europe – Prague 12 March, Budapest 13 March and Warsaw 14 March
We encourage companies wishing to penetrate these markets to join our Spotlight on Africa & Indian Ocean Islands workshop in Central/Eastern Europe covering the Czech Republic, Hungary and Poland, three key emerging markets for Africa and with connections to African destinations by European legacy carriers and the leading Gulf airlines.
We at Houston Travel Marketing Services have teamed up with Paddington Tucker of Travel Advance based in Prague to jointly run these workshops. This is the third year that we have organised these workshops and we have had an outstanding reaction from these three markets. In March 2012 we had74 attendees in Prague and 93 in Warsaw comprising Tour operators, Incentive travel operators and Travel agents. There was an amazing interest in incentive travel to Africa from Poland when 20 incentive travel specialists attended in Warsaw. 60 Hungarian tourism trade representatives attended our Spotlight session in Budapest in 2011.
