Africa Travel Week continues diversity and inclusion journey
%7B2c01a909-d112-4cb1-a285-ee554aeafd77%7D_p19002_1x1.gif
Each year the travel and tourism industry opens up the world to a wide range of travellers regardless of age, gender, ethnicity, abilities and sexual orientation. And in recent years, many companies have begun the process of exploring effective strategies to nurture a culture that reflects and understands those they seek to serve, in all their diversity.

While our masterclasses on often overlooked topics in the travel and tourism industry were successful, and embody our core brand values, the work goes far beyond that and we’ve learned there isn’t a quick fix when it comes to fostering diversity and inclusion. It’s not as simple as filling a quota or checking off boxes, nor is it a one-and-done initiative.

Cruise and airlines reinvent themselves
%7B2c01a909-d112-4cb1-a285-ee554aeafd77%7D_p19002_1x1.gif
Companies need to integrate the two elements: marketing and digitalization. Strategies will vary between airlines and cruise lines, and initiatives like gaining market share, diversifying the offered products, or targeting new market segments are expected.

Rune Engstrøm started travelling around Europe as a teenager, often with Interrail and no specific goal in mind. In 1988, he travelled to Kenya for the first time and fell in love with Africa. Since then, he has come back numerous times before he started working full time selling Africa. He loves working with and meeting new people, and admits that the travel industry is where he feels most at home.
