#Atta – looking ahead into 2019


(Posted 07th January 2019)

Happy new year! We hope you are all feeling well rested and ready to kick off 2019 with a bang! We are back in the office after the Christmas break and work continues as normal from today, so members are welcome to start submitting news stories right away.

We wanted to take this opportunity to give you a few reminders of all things Atta that are happening over the next six months so make sure you have your diary at the ready before having a read through the rest of this email.

We have two very exciting webinars coming up this month which you won’t want to miss! More information will be going out this week, so please do register for these as well as our winter get together during the Destinations Travel Fair at Olympia London.


March begins with ITB Berlin from the 6th – 10th which is fully booked, followed by two of our trade dinners, back by popular demand (spaces are still available for both dinners).

April and May call for a very busy time in South Africa, with plenty of different events and shows for members to get involved in.

June starts with quick trip to Tanzania for the Karibu / Kilifair, this year being held in Arusha before we head back to London for Experience Africa!
