About The Summit

Invest, Rebuild and Restart the African Travel and Tourism sector
7 – 8 April 2021 Virtual Summit

The International Tourism and Investment Conferences (ITIC) is organising in partnership with WTM Africa, this virtual summit in the aftermath of the restraining effects of the worldwide vaccination campaigns against the COVID-19. The African continent stands out as one of the economies that will recover the most rapidly from the Covid-19 pandemic as according to Statista, as at the 8 March 2021, “the number of confirmed COVID-19 cases in Africa amounted to 4,003,008 which represented around 3.4 per cent of the infections around the world”.

The Summit is designed to be the first in a series of virtual summits starting on 7 April 2021 and will feature a Ministerial Roundtable in a one-hour session from 12h30 to 13h30 CAT. The session on 8 April 2021 will run for four-and-a-half hours, from 10h30 to 15h00 CAT, featuring topics covering re-setting business financing, travel and health in the post Covid-19 era, rebranding of the African continent as one destination and new project investment opportunities which are emerging in the field of sustainable tourism.

This summit will unite a broad spectrum of stakeholders of the African and global tourism industries in order to tackle the key challenges that are cropping up in global tourism with special focus on investment opportunities in the African continent. Our objective is to promote inclusive growth and sustainable economic development for the benefit of all the people of Africa.
