African Tourism Board giant step into the UK market
The Association of National Tourist Offices and Representatives (ANTOR) recently joined the African Tourism Board as a member.
At the same time, Representation Plus joined the fast-growing platform of the African Tourism Board.
Alison Cryer, the founder of Representation Plus told eTurboNews: ” I strongly believe the best way for Africa to become a leading tourism destination is to work together as a region in the same way the the CTO and PATA have succeeded in developing tourism in the Caribbean and Pacific Asia.
We have worked with many countries across Africa helping them to develop tourism from the UK & Europe including The Gambia, Sierra Leone, Kenya, Namibia, Mozambique, Uganda, East Africa Tourism Association and Tunisia as well as private sector operators in Zimbabwe, South Africa, Botswana, and Tanzania too.
We would like to help to raise the profile of Africa and it’s member states and increase sustainable tourism to the region.
We are a fully integrated marketing agency providing traditional and digital solutions to Tourism growth on permanent representation or ad hoc project basis. ”
Juergen Steinmetz, the African Tourism Board Chief Marketing Officer said: “We are very pleased to have both ANTOR and Representation Plus join us. The U.K. is one of our most important market we clearly put a special focus on. With the help of leaders like Alison Cryer, and with ANTOR representing tourism boards in the U.K., this is a giant step forward for ATB’s outreach in Britain. We’re hoping this will encourage many more new members from Britain to join us.”
