African Tourism Board accepting applications for founding members

Here is a chance to be involved in the new African Tourism Board right from the beginning. The organization is still accepting nominations for founding members.

The African Tourism Board is soon to be officially launched. Members will not only include Tourism Boards, Ministers of Tourism and both government and private association, but public figures, government representatives, and private stakeholders including DMC’s, CVB’s, Investment Banks, Law-firms, and consultants.

“It’s all about marketing and outreach. We hope to be able not to involve our organization into political issues and our mission is to encourage African countries to work together, sharing joint tourism opportunities and assist with projects, investments important to the African Travel and Tourism Industry. There is so much potential and this can be done easier united”, said one of the soon-to-be-announced tourism leaders and founding member.

Currently, the African Tourism Board is accepting applications or nominations for founding members and marketing partners.

Some activities including road shows in North America, virtual outreach, investment opportunities, PR, and media relations, a security, and tourism Wellbeing Summit in Africa (to be announced), a special roadshow for the MICE Industry on the sideline of IMEX America are already in the pipeline.  Such initiatives are facilitated in close cooperation with the  International Coalition of Tourism Partners (ICTP)

The African Tourism Board hopes to work hand in hand with Brand Africa, Retosa, African Union, UNWTO, WTTC, the World Tourism Alliance, ICTP, ATA, the aviation and hospitality industry and other initiatives important to further Tourism to Africa.
