Saa And On Show Solutions Have Announced The Tour Dates For The Africa Showcase 2013.
The event will feature a number of representatives from hotel properties, game lodges, destination service providers and tourist boards.
“Over the past four years the Africa Showcase has evolved into one of the largest travel events featuring exclusively African products, providing travel sellers with the latest information and tools designed to boost their sales to Africa, which is a lucrative destination to sell,” said Stroebel Bekker, Vice President of Sales for South African Airways in North America.
“SAA has been expanding to new markets beyond Southern Africa, so we have rebranded the show to better reflect the destinations that will be represented. We are particularly excited about the 2013 show, given these new developments and how they will contribute to travel sellers attending the Showcase and learning how to grow their business through one-on-one meetings with the supplier representatives,” continued Bekker.
“The Southern Africa Showcase has enjoyed the support of private sector and national tourism authorities from Namibia, South Africa, Botswana, Zimbabwe and Zambia,” said Jacqui Reynolds, co-owner of On Show Solutions. “Our rebranding of the show enables us to open this popular showcase even wider, inviting tourist boards and products from Central and East Africa to join us in promoting Africa to the US travel trade.”
Reynolds said planning was continuing for the 2013 Africa Showcase, with details and updates being released in the coming months.
