Organisers Reed Exhibitions said the event will deliver a significant ROI for exhibitors and provide a platform for live and virtual connection between tourism industry stakeholders engaged in bringing business to Africa. 

With two plans, Plan A will see meetings take place over three days, face-to-face, at the Cape Town Convention Centre (CTICC), with a fourth day dedicated to virtual meetings.


In the event of a COVID resurgence, Plan B will see the event go fully virtual over three days on the same dates, with various tailor-made event packages for exhibitors.
