Looking at the African Tourism Board with members in 26 countries
The African Tourism Board is a public-private partnership with one strong message. This message is to tell the world that Africa Tourism is becoming one destination and is wide open for business. Africa is a safe continent and welcomes tourists, investments, and partnership with open arms. Africa Tourism Board is also welcoming tourism leaders from around Africa and the rest of the world with open arms to bring leadership, innovation and investment opportunities.
Tourism leaders are sensing this drive for Africa to grow together. Leaving politics behind and by attracting tourism leaders to join this new platform to cut through the chase. African Tourism Board is all about increasing business, investments and positive awareness for the often forgotten continent.
