Bettina Wiethoff, Manager Global Accounts, HelmsBriscoe Middle East, commented, “With great flight connections from Dubai to South Africa we have seen an increased interest in the destination, for incentives and MEA regional conferences. Being an international venue finder, we always strive towards suggesting special venues, which guarantee a memorable experience for the delegates. I highly appreciate the efforts in arranging IBTM Africa, which allows the hosted buyers to meet many potential partners at the same time, not only from South Africa, but from other African countries as well.
Exhibiting at IBTM Africa will provide African and Indian Ocean suppliers with the opportunity to conduct mutually matched business appointments with qualified international buyers that have proven budget and business to place in Africa. Exhibitors who have already signed up to attend IBTM Africa 2014 include: City Lodge Group, One & Only Cape Town, CSIR International, Salute Africa, That’s Africa Travel & Incentives, Private Safaris Destination Management, Shades of Green Safaris Tanzania and SA Reynolds Travel.
