Nordic tour for S Africa, Zanzibar, Seychelles & more

Africa and Indian Ocean island workshops return to Scandinavia

Three workshops in Finland and Sweden in November will familiarise travel trade professionals with a variety of countries in and around Africa. At the Spotlight on Africa & Indian Ocean Island travel workshops, product managers, contract managers, travel consultants and travel trade media will be able to improve their knowledge and sales about South Africa, Ethiopia, Zanzibar, Kenya, Rwanda, Uganda, Zimbabwe, Tanzania, Seychelles and Madagascar.

The events will take place aboard M/S Silja Symphony in Helsinki on November 12, on Wednesday November 13 at Stockholm City Conference Centre, Pillar Hall, in the Swedish capital, then continuing to Goteborg on November 14 at Gothia Towers.

The daily program starts mid-morning and continues through to 15.00, with finger food, drinks and a prize draw. Attendees can choose to attend the full workshop or just attend for an hour or two.

This is the fifth year that organisers Houston Travel Marketing and ww Tourism have organised the Spotlight on Africa workshops, which have always proved very popular with the Nordic travel trade as they allow attendees to gather information on a wide selection of African countries in one workshop session.
