(Posted 24th December 2020)
Derek Houston, a tourism marketing veteran well known across the continent of Africa, is already looking ahead into next year and has planned two events relevant to East Africa for February 2021.
One will be a face to face meeting in Arusha and one a virtual Spotlight Workshop on East Africa, taking place on the 03rd and 24th of February respectively.
Bookings are now open for both events and details are outline below.
Said Derek to ATCNews when sharing the information:
‘I would like to invite Uganda tourism companies to participate at our Spotlight on East Africa Virtual Travel Expo on 24 February which will specifically promote East African countries
The Spotlight Virtual Expo will attract Overseas Tour Operators who sell East Africa and also Tour Operators from South Africa and West Africa who promote packages to East Africa. For Spotlight Virtual you therefore will have a global audience.
Spotlight Virtual East Africa TravelExpo is designed to create a real Exhibition experience with Pre-scheduled Appointments and B2B Zoom-type meetings.
Spotlight Virtual will attract buyers representing
- Overseas-based Specialist Africa Tour Operators & Wholesalers who sell East African programmes
- Southern African & Rest of Africa IATA Travel Agents and Outbound/Regional Tour Operators who specifically sell East African destinations for Leisure, Business Travel, Meetings & Incentives.
- East African IATA Travel agents who sell outbound Corporate Travel and Leisure packages to other East African countries
We expect 150 – 200 Overseas/Africa Trade Buyers to attend Spotlight Virtual.
Only Exhibitors from East African countries (Tanzania, Kenya, Uganda, Rwanda, Ethiopia & Burundi) will be allowed to exhibit at Spotlight on East Africa Virtual TravelExpo.
The cost participation at Spotlight Virtual East Africa is only USD205 – see booking link below.
