What is World Travel Market Africa?

World Travel Market Africa delivers the leading global events for the travel industry. One of six shows in the WTM portfolio, our Africa show was launched in 2014 under the Africa Travel Week umbrella to bring the benefits and opportunities of our global industry expertise to travel professionals in this region.

Join over 6000 travel industry professionals as they attend Africa’s leading and only business to business (B2B) exhibition for both the inbound and outbound African travel and tourism markets.

Mirrored on WTM flagship events like WTM London and the Arabian Travel Market in Dubai, WTM Africa delivers a proven mix of Hosted Buyers, Buyers’ Club members, Media representatives, pre-schedule appointments, networking, evening functions and invited travel trade visitors.

Beyond the event we continue to help professionals in the African travel industry to drive commercial success with year-round access to make connections, industry news and developments, trends and technologies from around the world.

Through our industry networks, global reach and regional focus, WTM Africa creates personal and business opportunities providing our customers with quality contacts, content and communities.

It was one of the most well organized virtual events, the meeting platform was easy to navigate and so was the process of scheduling meetings. Got the opportunity to connect with my existing local destination partners and connect with new ones. An excellent show. Kudos to the team for this excellent virtual event.

The content programme ticked every box. I joined the ‘Experience Cape Town: a culinary journey from township to terroir’ session and it was awesome. I’ve already asked our DMC if this is something we can offer.

Decarbonising the events industry, together

At RX, we are serious about sustainability. We are founding members of the Net Zero Carbon Events pledge to make our company, our shows and the wider events industry net zero. We commit to being Net Zero by 2040 and to make a 50% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions by 2030.

In 2023 we will publish our pathway to net zero, setting out our reduction strategy with key milestones for all our shows. Given the complex nature of our supply chain and the emissions associated with a show, it is only by working together as an industry that we will be able to reduce our impact. We are building a company of net zero heroes to take action and ensure a sustainable future
