The dates for the Travel Agents Federation of India (TAFI) convention in South Africa have been confirmed as 24 to 27 February 2013. The event is being hosted by SATSA and sponsored by Tourism KwaZulu-Natal, in the beautiful city of Durban, writes Marjorie Dean.
The TAFI convention is a major event in the tourism calendar in India, and SATSA are delighted to host it in South Africa for the first time. More than 1000 delegates (businessmen, entrepreneurs and travel agency owners, are expected to attend). Between them they are collectively responsible for 70 per cent of all the outbound long-haul tickets sold within India.
In India, travel agents prefer to sell products of which they have had personal experience, therefore the opportunity to see and experience a wide range of South African product will give all those who participate in this convention a significant marketing edge in this growing market.
To enable South African companies to take full advantage of this unique event, we have designed an Exhibition Area that will allow SATSA members and South African product a significant opportunity to market your wares to this influential group of travel professionals in our own back yard.
Sponsorship opportunities exist at all levels. From lanyards, pens, pencils and notebooks to teas and lunches, water bottles and car hire. We are happy to offer part and co- sponsorships for the opening and closing events.
