What’s on at WTM Africa

A place for networking and knowledge sharing

Events at WTM Africa

WTM Africa strives to reach every need of an attendee. Make the most of the networking and business opportunities at our exhibition, as well as set aside time for you to develop your knowledge and understanding of the industry. Seminars and workshops run across three days and feature a variety of speakers to help you gain better insight into topical content and the latest industry trends.

WTM Africa Annual Trend Report

Launched during WTM Africa each year, our Trend Report looks at some of the biggest trends and shifts – and what they could mean for everyone working in (and passionate about) African Travel. 

WTM Responsible Tourism Awards Africa

A highlight on the WTM Africa Responsible Tourism calendar, these awards champion the very best work in Responsible Tourism on the African continent.

TIFA at WTM Africa

The WTM Africa Ministerial Roundtable 2024 will provide a truly practical platform for tourism ministers, sector leaders and top thinkers to share best practices and explore investment opportunities. The Ministerial Roundtable is available for anyone to attend but you will need to register for WTM Africa first.

Conferences and seminars

First-hand insight from key industry figures in the transformation of the global tourism industry. Our events programme has previously attracted a huge amount of attention as it brings insights to the forefront.  Seminars are led by influential speakers across multiple travel sectors. 

Speed Networking

At our speed networking event we help you to establish long lasting business partnerships, and we do this by inviting buyers to hold five minute meetings with exhibitors on a first-come first-served basis. If the introduction has been successful we can then arrange a more in-depth meeting on the Exhibitor’s stand during the show. Speed Networking takes place on Thursday, 11 April from 08h00 to 10h00 at the CTICC. Attendees are encouraged to arrive early.

Sustainability Village

Discover the heart of responsible tourism at WTM Africa’s Sustainability Village. This curated space brings together artisans, crafters, and thought leaders, all with a common message. Each village partner is carefully vetted to uphold our mission of education and accreditation, ensuring alignment with our sustainability objectives. Strategically positioned, their presence intertwines with our commitment to sustainable tourism, making responsible change an integral part of the show.

Join us in prioritizing the message that #ChangeMatters and shaping the future of responsible travel.
