WORKSHOP OPPORTUNITY IN #ARUSHA FOR B2B MEETINGS WITH REGIONAL TOURISM COMPANIES
(Posted 02nd January 2018)
Firstly may I wish you a Happy New year and hope it will be a great year for tourism to Uganda!
I am sure that Ugandan Hotels , lodges and operators receive good international bookings via Arusha and Moshi based tour operators. I believe that there is also considerable corporate business from Arusha to regional cities.
Here is an opportunity to network with 100 Arusha & Moshi inbound operators at a one afternoon/evening B2B event
February 01st, 2018 is the date for the first ever Spotlight on East Africa & Indian Ocean workshop in Arusha.
Our first announcement about this workshop had a very positive response and bookings are pouring in!! Already 22 tables have been booked by hotels, lodges and resorts. View Exhibitor List
Arusha is the home to hundreds of Tanzanian inbound tour operators who are significant suppliers of bed nights to East African, hotels, lodges and beach resorts.
Primarily to offer East African hotels , resorts and safari lodges the opportunity of meeting Arusha & Moshi based inbound tour operators, Arusha based Travel agents, NGO’s and Corporates in one venue instead of spending hours and hours in Arusha traffic going from office to office!
