Saturday 31 August
After a few years absence we are now organising another Spotlight in Windhoek on Saturday 31 August.
We are also pleased to advise that Air Namibia and ANTA are fully supportive of this workshop and will assist us in inviting all the IATA and Non-IATA agents.
At the suggestion of ANTA we are holding the workshop on a Saturday as this will allow some of the Swakopmund and Walvis Bay agents to attend. Air Namibia are also offering AD75 air tickets to Travel Agents from Swakopmund and Walvis Bay to attend.
Regional African and Overseas Travel is increasing so it will be an ideal opportunity for Airlines, International Tourist Offices, Beach Resorts, Hotel Groups and Cruise Companies to network with agents.
TravelExpo will promote:
- Inter-regional travel from Namibia to African destinations & Indian Ocean resorts
- Outbound Overseas Travel from Namibia
- Domestic Travel within Namibia
Profile of Buyers attending:
- Namibian Corporate and Leisure Travel Agents,
- Inbound and Regional Tour Operators,
- Corporate Travel Planners (Secretaries)
Spotlight workshop format: Flow (not scheduled appointments)
One 4-hour session on Saturday morning from 09h00-14h00 for approximately 80 trade attendees.
How will the TravelExpo be Promoted?
- I have appointed a well-known Namibian Events company to send out invitations and chase up registrations.
- Invitations will be sent using our specifically targeted databases to Travel Agencies (Leisure and Corporate), Inbound and Regional Tour Operators, and Major Corporate Travel accounts.
- Air Namibia will be sending invites to all IATA Travel agents as well as Non-IATA Agents & ITC’s based in Namibia. The Air Namibia sales team will actively encourage agents to attend the Spotlight workshop.
- Air Namibia will be offering Two air Tickets as Prizes in our Lucky draw at the workshops. This will be a big drawcard for the Trade to attend!!
- The Namibian Travel Agents Association (ANTA) and TASA (the Tour and Safari Association of Namibia) will also encourage their members to attend.
- Frequent reminders will be sent via email and telephone follow-ups.
