If you’re visiting for the first time, we speak from experience. Here are some of our top tips to help you make the most of your visit.
First Time Visitors
Our top tips when visiting WTM Africa for the first time
Wear comfortable shoes
Yes, it seems simple enough but comfort is key when walking around a huge venue like the CTICC. Don’t forget to bring along something warm as well as an umbrella and then drop them in the cloakroom so you don’t have to carry them around.
Print and bring your badge to avoid the queues
If you print the e-badge that is emailed to you and bring it along with you, you can skip all the queues and go straight into the show.
Pick up a Route Planner and an Event Guide
These will be your guide and your manual onsite. The Route Planner will help you map out the show and get full details of all of the conferences and sessions taking place, and the Event Guide will have the full details of all the Exhibitors at the show, including their contact details, so this is a great way to look them up later.
Plan your day
The best way to get the most out of WTM Africa is to plan your day prior to the event. If you check back on our website you will see a full list of all the conferences, seminars, and press conferences, so you can plan your time around which ones you want to attend. You can also find a full exhibitor list and their stand number in case you want to pay them a visit at the show.
Remember to come and talk to us if you need help!
We have info points inside the venue that are clearly demarcated for your convenience. If you need help with anything, come and ask us, we will be happy to help!
Network, Network, and Network some more
We don’t need to tell you, the best way to communicate is face to face and WTM Africa is known for creating life-long business connections. Take this opportunity to make time for good old networking. Introduce yourself to people at the show, remember they are all in the same boat, and chat to them about your company and ways you want to improve your business. Make sure you take plenty of business cards that include your social media handles.
Use our official hashtags
Not only is it a great way to be a part of the huge WTM community, but also it gives you that extra visibility amongst your peers and is a good way to meet new people. Our official hashtags are #IdeasArriveHere and #WTMA20
