The Africa Travel Indaba wraps up in Durban today. This year’s event welcomed over 7 000 delegates from 80 countries, 23 of which are African countries. The annual Indaba plays an integral role in shaping Africa’s stories along with the success of the continent in the future.
Scott Larney from Durban ICC shared his appreciation of the city playing host to the Indaba for the next 4 years.
“We hope our attendees have formed some meaningful relationships from being here and have seen the value of the show.” Larney said.
According to the Travel Indaba organisers, the highlight of this year’s event was partnering with the Nelson Mandela Foundation to celebrate Nelson Mandela’s centenary. An application called Madiba Journey was designed to experience the 100 locations around the country that defined Madiba’s life and legacy.
SA Tourism CEO, Sisa Ntshona said that the Travel Indaba is a marketing platform that enables Africans to showcase their talents to the world.
“We’ve come to the end of this show. It was an environment full of energy and we’re very proud of the show we’ve put out.”
