Spotlight on Africa travel workshops hit Sweden

Meet South Africa, Zanzibar, Kenya, Rwanda, Namibia, Seychelles…

To promote business and leisure travel from the Nordic countries to Africa and the Indian Ocean islands, travel companies are networking this week with tour operators, beach resorts, airlines, tourist offices and safari lodges.

The Houston Travel Marketing Spotlight on Africa workshops began on a high note in Helsinki on Monday night with a special Jambo Party hosted by Air France KLM and Kenya Airways. Around 110 Helsinki travel agents networked and partied with the 17 African and Indian Ocean exhibitors. They were able to update their knowledge, learn about new developments and negotiate rates.

Spotlight Africa started yesterday in Helsinki and continues in Stockholm today (Wednesday) at Stockholm City Conference Centre at 11.00 and ends at Gothia Towers in Goteborg on Thursday 14th (10.00-14.00). Trade can register at the door to attend.
