The Luxury Travel Market Africa (ILTMA) will return to the spectacular Kirstenbosch National Botanical Gardens in 2023, offering exhibitors, travel buyers and visitors a unique taste of the beauty and luxury the host City of Cape Town has to offer.
The luxury travel show, which will take place from 31st of March to the 02nd of April and promises to be more exclusive than ever before, will focus on what luxury means to travellers in a new world.
“We are excited to hold ILTM Africa at such a spectacular and award-winning location once again,”
said Megan De Jager (née Oberholzer), RX Africa Portfolio Director: Travel, Tourism & Marketing before adding: “Not only is Kirstenbosch recognised as one of Cape Town’s Big 6 iconic tourist attractions, but it also received the TripAdvisor Travellers’ Choice Award for 2022, positioning it in the top 1% of ‘things to do’ worldwide.”
Next year’s programme for ILTM Africa will consist of several immersive luxury experiences as well
as some spectacular luxury FAM trips for media and travel buyers. Delegates can expect offsite
lunches, decadent networking events and a luxury welcome morning at the Vineyard Hotel. They will
also be treated to gin and wine excursions, experience high-end African products and get a glimpse
behind the scenes at Shimansky.
“We are pleased to once again host this showcase of the beauty and opportunity in Cape Town, and
on the rest of the continent. Africa Travel Week gives Cape Town the chance to cement its brand as
an attractive place to visit, to work, to live and invest in, by providing a platform to connect industry
roleplayers. This focus can offer greater opportunity for those working in the tourism sector. We are
working hard to support this growth by creating a City of excellence and hope,” – said Cape Town
Mayor Geordin Hill-Lewis.
The 2023 show will feature top-end buyers, elite media and the most upmarket exhibitors. The 2023
show will also see an increased number of international media attending as well as hosted buyers
from across the globe with a special focus on buyers from Europe and North America. To make sure
everyone gets the most out of the networking opportunities, meeting times have also been
extended to 20 minutes.
As a strategic value-add, the bespoke travel trade show will take place slightly earlier than WTM
Africa, which is scheduled to run from 03rd to 05th of April.
“By staggering our dates slightly between the two shows, ILTM Africa attendees will have the option
to stay on for WTM Africa should they want to attend the content sessions or engage in further
networking,” De Jager explained before concluding: “With increased accessibility for ILTM Africa 2023, we are predicting a high demand which is why interested parties must plan ahead and secure their attendance as soon as possible. Space is limited!”
