WHAT WE DO
We Are Africa is far more than a trade event. Each year brings a carefully curated selection of high-end travel brands, world-class buyers and top international press, united by their passion for Africa. Together, our tribe is challenging outdated, negative and monotone perceptions of the continent through travel.
In demonstrating the uniqueness of each African country, we stand united in diversity. Because we are Not One Story. We Are Africa.
WHAT WE’RE LOOKING FOR
We’re on the hunt for travel brands who stand apart from the crowd, thanks to their determination to tell their individual stories of Africa in a way that resonates with today’s high-end traveller. If you think you fit the bill, we want to hear from you!
