The Africa Tourism Investment Summit

 The Africa Tourism Investment Summit

The African Tourism Investment Summit will host keynote speakers from around the globe who will contribute their learnings, expertise, and unpack various investment opportunities Africa has to offer, not just in the travel and tourism sector, but also in lateral sectors that contribute to the industry.

At a time when Africa is celebrating a new open skies policy and the African Union heads of state have launched a continent-wide free trade agreement, travel and tourism in Africa are poised to expand, accelerate and flourish in an unprecedented manner. However, to support this growth, there will be a need for significant investment in human resources, infrastructure, ICT, equipment, security, logistics, marketing capacity and more – to ensure that those travelling on the continent have the best experiences possible.  The summit will focus on plenary discussions that will cover trends in investment, the variety of investment opportunities available in Africa, policy and case studies. In addition, it will encourage participation in breakaway sessions designed to open dialogue between public and private sector participants, forming practical solutions for investment. 

The African Tourism Investment Summit will also allow potential investors to scope projects and opportunities across the continent, while also meeting with key stakeholders they can partner with to move ahead.
