Why join as an exhibitor?

 

All we recognise the importance of communicating one-to-one with prospective customers and existing partners, too. And whilst technology has provided us with some great options, we are all starting to suffer from either  "Zoom Gloom" or "Zoom Fever" and nothing quite works as well as when you meet someone in person!

But are previously popular events like Indaba, WTM, ITB, We Are Africa and Experience Africa going to appeal as much as previous, with their high numbers of attendees?

Instead, the Safari Roadshow allows you the opportunity to conduct 32 pre-arranged appointments with high quality UK-based Africa specialist tour operators across the UK. See the list of attendees from Safari Roadshow 2020 >>>

 

Our Safari Roadshows have been running for almost a decade and have deliver consistently successful results. Many of our exhibitors have participated year after year.

Participation costs have been trimmed back and include an all-inclusive package of exhibiting; branding; accommodation, sustinence and transfers between venues. All exhibitors need to bring is a presentation and plenty of enthusiasm. We provide the rest!

Why attend as a buyer?

 

We don’t anticipate that many UK buyers will be attending WTM London this year and you've also missed out on ITB, Indaba, KiliFair, Experience Africa, WTM Africa, We Are Africa and others. 

All we recognise the importance of communicating one-to-one with prospective customers and existing partners, too. And whilst technology has provided us with some great options, we are all starting to suffer from either  "Zoom Gloom" or "Zoom Fever" and nothing quite works as well as when you meet someone in person!

 

So our Safari Roadshows will visit Manchester, The Cotswolds and London, with full-day events - featuring two dedicated country sessions - every other week.

SAFARI Roadshow will visit Manchester and The Cotswolds, prior to a two-day stint in London, with just 8 highly selected exhibitors in each group. Exhibitors will be predominantly accommodation owners of a standard that is relevant to a UK tour operator buyer. Ideally it comprises of mostly well known brands, but with a sprinkling of new names and surprises.

 

We fully recognise that we’re asking tour operators to potentially give up 6 days over that period, but doing so will provide you with almost 100 high quality product presentations across 10 countries. Your product sessions could potentially be effectively restricted to these events. You are of course free to pick and choose which days you attend.
