Agent fam trips are available for APTA Africa forum

The Association for the Promotion of Tourism to Africa (APTA) has added several pre- and post-fam trip options for attendees of its Global Forum, which will be hosted in Cape Town from Sept. 26 to 30. The theme of the global forum is, “Africa: Where It Begins,” representing the first time this event has been hosted on the African continent.

The tours are available at special rates that are extended to travel advisors and other attendees of the Global Forum to provide an opportunity to travel throughout sub-Saharan and East Africa to enjoy and learn more about the experiences available to their clients and to enable them to become specialists in selling the continent.

A number of APTA tourism partners are offering discounts on room nights or packages, including Bush & Beyond, Extraordinary, Jabulani, Jenman African Safaris, Matetsi Victoria Falls, More Family Collection, Seolo Africa, Shamwari Private Game Reserve, Shenton Safaris, Sun International-the Palace at the Lost City and Virgin Limited Edition-Mont Rochelle.

Registration for the APTA forum is $300 for APTA members and $350 for nonmembers. Registration includes two days of educational sessions, one-on-one meetings with tourism suppliers, hosted meals and network receptions. Special rates are offered for accommodations at the Table Bay Hotel, and airfare discounts are available from United Airlines and Delta for travel to/from Cape Town and Johannesburg. Optional sightseeing tours in Cape Town and throughout the Western Cape are also available for attendees.
