Next Spotlight on Africa workshop takes place in Harare


(Posted 18th September 2013)

Ahead of the Sanganai Zimbabwe Travel Expo in Harare, scheduled for October 10th to 12th, will Derek Houston of Houston Travel Marketing Service hold one of his trademark Spotlight on Africa workshops, where business to business contacts are a given in preparation Zimbabwe’s premier travel trade show. Derek’s workshops of course need no further introduction as scores of his clients have followed him from Africa to Europe where the Spotlight on Africa workshops over the years have generated plenty of business for the participants.

The Sanganai Zimbabwe Travel Expo in Harare though perhaps needs a bit of a greater introduction for those not too familiar with events in Southern Africa.

The Zimbabwe Tourism Authority has availed the following details about Sanganai:

Sanganai/Hlanganani – World Travel and Tourism Africa Fair is an annual Tourism Trade Fair organized by the Zimbabwe Tourism Authority. It showcases the widest variety of Africa’s best tourism products, and attracts international visitors and media from across the world. The Fair is the successor of Shanyai/Vakatshani, the Zimbabwe International Travel Expo (ZITE) that was held annually at the Harare International Conference Centre. ZITE started as a small expo in 1982 and grew over the years to become one of Africa’s leading tourism showcases by 2007. The past four editions of Sanganai/ Hlanganani were a resounding success and attracted the leading African destinations and major world tourism markets such as South Africa, Botswana, Malaysia, China, Zambia, Malawi, Kenya, Indonesia, Italy and many others. The editions have seen the whole world converging in Zimbabwe in the form of high calibre international buyers as well as exhibitors, hence achieving its main purpose of bringing the world to Africa, “Where the world meets Africa”. The 2012 edition will be held in the Capital city, Harare under the the theme, Celebrating Africa’s Tourism Diversity and is expected to ride on the successes gained by the previous editions and is therefore an opportunity not to be missed.
