World Travel Market wraps up

May 6, 2014

Africa Travel Week concluded on Saturday, May 3, at the Cape Town International Convention Centre.

International buyers were selected from 47 countries, including emerging markets such as India, China, Brazil and Russia, for the show, says Carol Weaving, MD of Thebe Reed Exhibitions Group, which organises the show.

Weaving adds that more than 10 500 appointments took place across the three shows that make up Africa Travel Week. These are International Luxury Travel Market (ILTM), Incentives, Business Travel & Meetings (IBTM) and World Travel Market (WTM) Africa.

While this was the second edition of ILTM in South Africa, IBTM and WTM have both been added to the show. Weaving says that the decision to add IBTM and WTM followed the success of ILTM last year.

According to Weaving, Thebe Reed plans to grow the number of exhibitors and buyers for next year’s show. She emphasises that the group will stick to its formula of back-to-back, one-on-one meetings for ILTM as well as IBTM.

The dates for Africa Travel Week 2015 are:
ILTM Africa: 13 - 15 April 2015
IBTM Africa: 13 – 15 April 2015
WTM Africa: 15 – 17 April 2015
