African expos returning 2022

After the cancellation of two signature global trade shows due to the Covid-19 pandemic, South African Tourism will host both Meetings Africa and Africa’s Travel Indaba in 2022.

Meetings Africa will be at the Sandton Convention Centre in Johannesburg from 28 February to 2 March while Africa’s Travel Indaba will be at Durban’s Inkosi Albert Luthuli International Convention Centre from 2 to 5 May. Both shows will be physical events with limited virtual components.

‘We recently hosted Africa’s Travel and Tourism Summit in a hybrid format,’ says Sthembiso Dlamini, acting CEO of South African Tourism. ‘It was well-executed and attended, bringing the tourism sector together for a common purpose of reigniting the tourism sector.

‘Hosting Meetings Africa and Africa’s Travel Indaba will show that South Africa is open for business and that the South African tourism sector has world-class Covid-19 safety protocols in place.’

South Africa has recently seen a significant reduction in the number of new Covid infections. The vaccination programme aims to have  70%  of  the adult population fully vaccinated by the end of 2021. The country is currently sitting  at Alert Level 1 with reduced hours of curfew and the number of people permitted for gatherings up to  750 for indoors and 2,000 for outdoors.

Registration details for delegate participation for these trade shows will be announced soon.
