The annual educational travel trade show will visit Washington DC on September 7, Toronto on September 11 and Los Angeles on September 13.

A statement by SAA read: “The show brings together travel specialists and African suppliers representing hotels, safari lodges, destination tourism organisations and other attractions that are popular with North American travellers.”

Travel agents and tour operators specialing in tourism to Africa are invited to attend the showcase to meet one-on-one with over 30 exhibitors to learn about the latest trends, new properties and updated destinations products. “The Africa Showcase also presents the opportunity for new travel agents and tour operators that are not currently selling Africa to broaden their sales portfolio and learn more about selling the rich heritage, diverse culture, beautiful landscapes and amazing experiences of Africa,” said SAA.
