Dear Uganda Tourism Colleagues

I am looking forward to my Visit to Kampala this Saturday 04 -Tuesday 07th October and introduce you to my colleague Penny Snodgrass, the Sales Manager of World Travel Market Africa and IBTM Africa.

Ø Though we are virtually fully booked for our Spotlight on Africa & Indian Ocean Islands workshop in Central/Eastern Europe covering Hungary, Czech Republic and Poland we do still have one table available for a Uganda hotel group or Safari Lodge or Uganda tour operator.

The dates are Budapest Tuesday 25 November Prague Wednesday 26 November, Warsaw Thursday 27 November

Ø World Travel Market Africa 2014 was a great success with over 3000 Trade visitors. The most talked about feature of WTM Africa 2014 was the amazing Hosted Buyer appointment programme resulting in 5353 pre-scheduled appointments with Exhibitors. W also received great comments on how professional our speed networking sessions were.

I hope you will decide to exhibit at the next WTM Africa which takes place between 15-17 April 2015 in Cape Town again. Already I have received a number of bookings from East African companies. Penny Snodgrass will gladly give you all the info on costs etc

Ø EIBTM Barcelona 18-20 November . Our flagship event is specifically targeting the Meetings, Conferences and Incentive travel markets. Over 4000 Hosted Buyers from 62 countries worldwide will attend this exhibition and trade fair.
