The Tourism ecosystem in Africa is evolving rapidly and now is the right time to connect and attract the best brains using technology as a launch pad to change the narratives.
There are new intersections for African narratives and opportunities in Afrotourism. Technology is an open avenue which creatives can explore to build businesses and create opportunities for prosperity around them.
Tourism brings new patterns and changes to the landscape, such as
globalization, a phenomenon whose impact is not limited to big cities.
The influence of globalization is very clear in the hospitality sector, for examplewhen you can find similar hotel rooms, restaurants and services– whether it be in Lagos, Accra ,Nairobi ,London, Paris, Hong Kong, China, or New York, this is the influence of Technology at play.
Our theme for this year as enumerated above aims to bring to the roundtable all stakeholders connected to the Tourism and Technology business in Africa, and
through presentations and panel discussions, throw more light on this aspect of technology innovation business for the benefit of consumers.
