Africa Travel Week
Emerging Africa

Africa Travel Week turns spotlight on tourism start-ups

Calling all business owners within the travel and tourism sector!  

Africa Travel Week is looking to celebrate local SMMEs in a new series called Emerging Africa. Nominate your establishment for a chance to be featured on the ATW Connect website, as well as on ATW’s social media platforms.  

This is your chance to showcase your business and share with the world all what you have to offer!  

While a number of local tourism businesses will be featured by ATW over the course of the next few months, only one will walk away with the grand prize – a 6 sqm stand at the WTM Africa Travel and Tourism Expo, to the value of R31 635. The winner of the grand prize will be announced following a random draw on 1 February 2022, with the sought-after expo set to take place from 11 – 13 April 2022 at the Cape Town International Convention Centre.  

Do you want to know how to get involved? It’s simple: 

Fill in the survey (link below), and supply details on a particular experience or product as offered by your business, along with key details regarding your ‘ideal’ customer, the establishment in general, and what makes the brand/product/experience stand out as an authentic African gem within the tourism industry.
