Spotlight on Africa is coming to Arusha
01 February 2018 is the date for the first ever Spotlight on Africa & Indian Ocean workshop in Arusha.
Arusha is the home to hundreds of Tanzanian Inbound Tour Operators who are significant suppliers of bed nights to Zanzibar and Tanzanian beach resorts and hotels.
My sources tell me that early in the New Year every resort and hotel in Zanzibar and DAR makes sales trips to Arusha to meet Inbound Tour Operators to contract new rates, advise on new developments, offer specials etc. etc.
SPOTLIGHT therefore offers these resorts and hotels the opportunity to meet and negotiate with Arusha Inbound Tour Operators in one venue instead of spending hours and hours in Arusha traffic going from office to office!!READ MORE...
