After the postponement of last year’s show, Meetings Africa is back with registrations now open.

The announcement that both Meetings Africa and Africa’s Travel Indaba would be returning in 2022 was welcomed by the industry. Now, the organisers of the show, the South Africa National Convention Bureau (SANCB), have announced that registrations are open. The SANCB is the business unit of South African Tourism – the destination marketing organisation (DMO) currently headed by acting CEO, Themba Khumalo.

“The Covid-19 pandemic has taken its toll on the global business events industry, however, as the business events industry on the African continent, we remain optimistic and we are thrilled to invite global buyers to come network and do business with our exhibitors from across the African continent,” says Amanda Kotze-Nhlapo, Chief Bureau Officer at the SANCB.

Meetings Africa 2022 marks the 16th instalment of the show, with its 15th anniversary celebrated in February 2020 during which it hosted 324 exhibiting companies from Africa.

“There has been a resounding call for face-to-face business engagement from our industry players, and we are confident in executing a safe event. While we understand the severe blow that has been dealt to the industry, we are also confident in creating a conducive platform for our participants. Buyers who will not be able to travel to South Africa due to travel restrictions will be accommodated through a minimal virtual platform. Meetings Africa is a representation of the unrelenting spirit of an African industry that forges ahead and opens its doors to the world,” highlights Amanda.
