Tour operators and agents from Nigeria and Ghana team up Tour operators and agents from Nigeria and Ghana team up

For the very first time, travel agents and tour operators from Nigeria and Ghana will gather for an industry conference in Johannesburg, South Africa. The National Association of Nigeria Travel Agencies (NANTA) is organizing the conference in collaboration with the Tour Operators' Union of Ghana (TOUGHA).

The conference aims to bring together industry players from West Africa and beyond to share ideas, deepen relationships, and learn from each other. Participants will also discuss how travel agents and operators can increase intra-African travel, particularly between West Africa and South Africa.

In addition to networking opportunities, the full-day conference will feature an impressive lineup of speakers and facilitators who will share their knowledge and experiences on industry operations, current and emerging trends, and strategies for accelerating Africa's tourism recovery.

According to Mrs. Alisa Osei-Asamoah, the President of TOUGHA, the upcoming industry conference is perfectly timed to rejuvenate travel and tourism across the continent. She emphasizes that the conference presents an exciting opportunity for industry players to reorganize, re-strategize and inject new energy into their businesses. Mrs. Osei-Asamoah eagerly anticipates the conversations and learnings that the meeting will provide to attendees.

Scheduled for May 5th, 2023, the conference will be held at the University of Johannesburg, coinciding with this year's Africa's Travel Indaba in Durban from May 8th to 11th. This timing allows attendees to participate in the Travel Indaba and engage in planned tours and sightseeing activities before and after the conference, including a road trip from Johannesburg to Durban.

Mrs. Osei-Asamoah expresses gratitude to her counterparts in Nigeria and South Africa for the partnership with TOUGHA, making it possible for them to attend this important conference. She applauds NANTA's President, Mrs. Susan Akporiaye, for extending the invitation to them and commends South African Tourism for facilitating the conference. Mrs. Osei-Asamoah is confident that the conference will be a great success and looks forward to fruitful discussions
