Responding to your really useful and constructive feedback, in February and March 2020, Kamageo will be hosting two separate 'Safari Roadshows' with a total of 40 quality exhibitors.

 

24th-27th February :  exhibitors from Botswana and Zambia ('BZA').

Following our tried and tested format, across each one-day event, there will be two separate sessions where you can meet with 10 high quality exhibitors from each country.

Because you found two consecutive days out of the office too long, we've given you a fortnight's break before our second show. This allows you and the exhibitors to attend ITB in Berlin, too.

 

There are four venues in total - Manchester, Cirencester and two in Central London.

This unique series of events across the country has one simple objective. To bring quality buyers and sellers together, ideally on the buyers doorstep.

Now in its fourth year, our tried and tested format has proved hugely popular. Buyers appreciate the effective use of their time, meeting with only high quality product (some big brands, some new players), whilst exhibitors love how we recruit only top tour operators to attend, at a truly cost-effective all-inclusive price.

  • Buyers Handbook, which will include profiles of all exhibitors

EXHIBITORS

We have just 10 exhibitors from leading camps and lodges, plus one ground operators / DMCs per country.

The success of the roadshow will be influenced heavily by the exhibitors. Previous experience allows us to almost predict who will attend simply by viewing the exhibitor list. We firmly believe in order to have an attractive list, we need to include a number of well known brands (to give buyers a discernible benchmark of the standard of exhibitors), along with newer and lesser known companies.

 

Kamageo feels that it is incumbent upon us to advise a perspective exhibitor of the suitability to exhibit, based solely on the likelihood of them being used by international buyers and therefore capable of gaining an acceptable return on their investment.
