Spotlight TravelExpo: Lusaka (Zambia)

Lusaka is a fast growing commercial centre and the Zambian economy is thriving. Spotlight TravelExpo Lusaka will comprise a Networking Cocktail Party with major Travel Agencies on Tuesday evening 11th February at the Latitude 15⁰ Hotel and a morning breakfast session on Wednesday 12th February at the Radisson Blu Hotel.

This workshop is a Spotlight on Everywhere….Overseas Travel, Africa, Regional and Domestic Travel within Zambia.

Overseas Travel is increasing and there are 85 IATA and Non IATA Travel Agencies in Zambia so it will be an ideal opportunity for Airlines, International Tourist Offices, Cruise Companies and Coach Tour Companies to network with agents.

Lusaka residents are great weekend travellers to the game parks, Livingstone, Kariba and further afield to South Africa. This Expo is an ideal opportunity for Hotels, Lodges and Tourism organisations within Zambia to promote their packages, Lodges, Shopping Opportunities etc.

Being a land-locked country; Indian Ocean beach holidays to Zanzibar, Mauritius & Seychelles are also very popular in Zambia.

Spotlight also has the full support of TAAZ (Travel Agents Association of Zambia) who will send regular invites out to their members.

At the 2019 LUSAKA Travel Expo 28 Exhibitors including airlines, hotels, beach resorts and safari lodges from South Africa, Zanzibar, Seychelles, Zambia, Tanzania & Zimbabwe participated and 110 Travel Trade from Lusaka and the Copperbelt attended.
