Africa’s Travel Indaba which was scheduled for 06-09 May 2019 in Durban, South Africa will now be moved to new dates following the announcement of 9 May 2019 as national elections day by President Cyril Ramapahosa.

Announcing the development, South African Tourism CEO, Sisa Ntshona, said they were currently exploring all viable options and consulting stakeholders following the declaration of the election date.

“We also need to consult with our various partners and stakeholders and appreciate the understanding of our buyers, exhibitors and delegates who will now await a new date to attend Indaba.”

“We know the importance of Indaba to the travel industry and want to ensure that we are still able to provide a world class show despite having to change the date,” added Ntshona.

The Tourism Business Council of South Africa (TBCSA) also added their voice.

“With dates confirmed upfront, buyers and exhibitors would’ve planned around the original date. There are also other global shows during this period, but we would like to reassure the industry that despite the new date, Indaba will still be a fantastic show to attend and would like to encourage you to attend once the new date is confirmed,” explained TBCSA CEO, Tshifhiwa Tshivhengwa,

Indaba is Africa’s biggest travel and trade show with over 7 000 delegates from 80 countries attending last year’s event.
