Sports and Events Tourism Exchange

The Sports and Events Tourism Exchange (SETE) brings together businesses from the sports, events and tourism industries.

There is a gap in the market to provide local event organisers and sports industry stakeholders with a platform to show case their services and network amongst their peers. Leveraging off the WTM Africa platform, we can further fill the gap to ensure we are maximising any tourism opportunities around sporting events.

SETE will aim to educate and create discussions around this ever-changing and growing sectors

Who should be attending this conference and exhibition?

In order to promote ourselves as a destination capable of hosting major international events we need the supply chains of the sports and tourism industries to participate in this event. This means that the hospitality industry, airlines, tour operators, car rental companies, event venues such as stadia, sports marketing companies, corporate companies involved in sponsoring sports events, media agencies promoting sports and any company that wants to benefit from the sports and tourism industries should attend either as a conference delegate or exhibitor.

Government institutions from the sports and tourism sectors will also need to attend, especially the local government authorities such as provincial and city tourism authorities, officials from the provincial and national tourism and sports departments. Undergraduate and post graduate students who want to further their career in sports tourism are also encouraged to attend the conference to understand the global and local trends and lessons that can be learnt.
