Any time a country or region imposes any sort of visa stipulation - even if it’s a waiver - the travel industry sighs a collective groan, knowing the obstacles and headaches to come.
FT. LAUDERDALE — The Africa Showcase, the largest travel trade show in U.S. and Canada that focuses exclusively on promoting tourism to Africa, is coming to Toronto this fall.
A Toronto show will take place Sept. 3, kicking off a schedule that includes three U.S. cities as well (Stamfort, CT on Sept. 5; Ft. Lauderdale on Sept. 9 and Denver on Sept. 11).
The Africa Showcase, presented by South African Airways and South Africa-based event organizer, On Show Solutions, brings together 30+ top suppliers from Africa representing hotels, safari lodges, destination tourism organizations in Africa, with North American travel agents and tour operators for educational presentations, networking opportunities and one-on-one meetings.
“The Africa Showcase has clearly contributed to a significant growth in tourism for the participating travel agents and tour operators who attend from North America, resulting from specialized education and a better understanding of the market,” says Marlene Sanau, VP of Sales for South African Airways in North America. “South African Airways is committed to supporting our travel partners as they explore everything the magnificent continent of Africa has to offer.”
