Speaking about the Africa Top 100 Tour Operators, the Founding member of the #TeamAfrica, Mr. Ikechi Uko, who is also the Organiser of Akwaaba African Travel Market expressed his excitement about the awards.

“Our vision is to stimulate Intra Africa Tourism. We need to get at least 10% of Africans to travel within Africa. This can only work with the support of Tour Operators. We are going a step further this year to recognize and celebrate the core professional outbound Tour Operators who are at the fore of attracting and moving Africans outside their own countries to explore the abundance of the beauties of our Africa” said Ikechi.

Ikechi noted that, “Africa is a great goldmine whose tourism potentials remain unmatched and untapped. Africa is a continent of Over 1 billion people but receives only 6% of the global tourist Arrivals. As the middle class and number of Travelers increase there is a need to organize the Tourism and Travel landscape by growing scale. Some organisations have global link operations but most operators are still small and limited to their countries. There is a need to organise the tour operators on a larger scale across countries.”

In the same regard, Akwaaba African Travel market is pulling together all major outbound Tour Operators in Africa to a Summit in Lagos on the 10th of September. This Summit will enable players from different countries build partnerships and explore new opportunities to grow.

The 14th Akwaaba African Travel Market will also host Africa Tour Operators Conference and will run under the theme, “The Role of DMCs and DMOs in Sustainable Destination Marketing in Africa”
