World Travel Market (WTM) Africa is the only travel trade event in southern Africa catering for both inbound and outbound sectors of the travel and tourism industry. The fourth World Travel Market will be taking place in Cape Town next week from 19 to 21 April 2017.
To quote Chardonnay Marchesi, General Manager of Africa Travel Week, “We are proud, not only to share what promises to be an impelling programme on 20 and 21 April, but a panel of speakers that will provide insights and impart knowledge that can further develop this industry in the coming years.”
ATM Africa is all set to welcome more travel professionals compared to 2016. Visitors to the event will range from buyers, tour operators, tourism products, local outbound travel agents to destination marketing organizations.
Marchesi said that a major side for WTM Africa 2017 is the devoted talks and discussions planned for its Travel Tech Show, while specialists in outbound travel will learn how to better package and sell popular destinations in the new Outbound Conference Theatre.
The Paris Region Tourist Board will be making a debut this year at the WTM, Cape Town. To quote François Navarro, Managing Director of the Paris Region Tourist Board, “We know that the Paris Region has so much to offer the visitor from Africa and we are delighted to be coming to Cape Town to talk to as many people as we can, about the myriad of experiences to be had in our part of France. We cannot wait to get there!”
