Cape Town – In a strategic move to drive investment opportunities across Africa’s travel and tourism sector, Africa Travel Week (ATW) has secured a partnership with Tourism Investment Forum Africa (TIFA).
Scheduled to run alongside WTM Africa from 10 – 12 April at the CTICC in the Host City of Cape Town, TIFA actively positions African destinations as attractive investment locations, further promoting growth and development in related sectors of their economies.
“TIFA provides an important platform for policymakers and investment professionals from Africa and around the globe to engage, collaborate, and secure business,” explains Megan De Jager, Portfolio Director at Africa Travel Week.
“As a landmark 10th edition of Africa Travel Week (ATW), our alliance at this year’s show not only creates an exciting value-add for attendees but further unlocks the tremendous potential of the travel and tourism sector to drive economic and social prosperity across the continent.”
The three-day event programme for 2024 consists of investment opportunity showcases, presentations on policy, trends, and developments, expert panel discussions, and the chance to conduct site visits to various investment project locations.
“Last year’s summit attracted over 190 delegates and saw 13 countries and regions presenting more than 50 investment projects and opportunities across the African Continent.” adds Miller Matola, CEO of Millvest Advisory, the conveners of TIFA.
“By working closely with ATW this year, we’re expecting an even larger turnout of eager investors, influential business leaders, multilateral organisations, and development agencies seeking sustainable projects in which to invest capital. If this is on your radar for 2024, don’t leave TIFA and WTM Africa off your business calendar. Register now. ”
