October 3, 2013 MICE No Comments Email Email

South Africa-based roadshow organiser On Show Solutions, in association with South African Tourism, is pleased to announce the roadshow dates for the Africa Showcase in November this year.   

Over the past five years, the Africa Showcase – On Show Solutions’ roadshows in key global markets – has evolved into one of the largest travel trade events featuring exclusively African products.  The events provide travel sellers with the latest information and tools designed to boost their sales to Africa through one-on-one meetings with the finest products from Southern and East Africa. 541149

South African Tourism has committed their support to sponsor the five trade evenings taking place in Perth, Melbourne, Brisbane, Sydney and Auckland. ‘Partnering with On Show Solutions on this initiative is a great way for us to continue to achieve our objectives of creatively engaging with trade and highlighting that now is the best time to help travellers tick South Africa off their bucket lists.  It is also a great addition to our already successful South African Tourism roadshow series that we run every two years in Australia and New Zealand,’ said Lalie Ngozi, South African Tourism General Manager Australasia.

The showcase will be a reflection of the diverse range of tourism products that Africa has to offer the Australasian travel trade, featuring a number of representatives from hotel properties, game lodges and national tourist boards.  Four VIP events have been scheduled for media and wholesalers who specialise in Africa to meet the exhibiting companies; five trade evenings in the major cities are an opportunity for exhibitors and agents to connect.

‘We’re proud to be bringing Africa to the travel trade this year’, says Jacqui Reynolds, co-owner of On Show Solutions.  ‘We have been watching the arrival statistics from Australia and New Zealand increasing significantly, so we believe the timing right now is perfect.’
