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!!
Primarily to offer Zanzibar and Dar es Salaam resorts, hotels and safari lodges the opportunity of meeting Arusha-based Inbound Tour Operators, Arusha-based Travel Agents, NGO’s and Corporates.
Exhibitors will include:
- Zanzibar and Dar es Salaam Hotel Groups
- Tanzanian and Kenyan Safari Lodges
- Car Rental
- Nairobi Hotels seeking corporate business from Arusha, and
- Kenya coast resorts wanting to engage with Tanzanian Inbound Operators
Who needs to attend the workshop?
- Inbound Tour Operators specialising in East Africa/Indian Ocean Islands;
- Travel Agents
- Nairobi Inbound Tour Operators
