The SAA Africa Showcase is the largest travel trade event in North America featuring exclusively African suppliers that represent hotels, safari lodges, destination tourism organizations and other attractions that are popular with North American travellers. It is well supported by a phenomenal line up of suppliers. We’re pleased to have representation and product experiences from more than 12 African countries, providing a good cross section of what our dynamic destination has to offer.
The APTA National Forum brings together the movers and shakers in our niche market with chapter officials and members from all 12 local chapters in attendance. It will feature passionate speakers who are in the forefront of conservation and tourism on the African continent. This provides a superb networking opportunity and the ideal occasion for suppliers and buyers to meet and mingle socially.

The show brings Africa travel specialists the latest trends on the region’s products and services, enabling those who participate to boost their sales to the increasingly popular destinations throughout Africa.
The Africa Showcase is hosted in collaboration with On Show Solutions, a South Africa-based event organizer. “We are proud to see the Africa Showcase getting bigger and more popular every year,” said Todd Neuman, Vice President Commercial for South African Airways in North America. “We are also very excited to bring our show and suppliers to the Canadian travel specialists for the first time. It is a strategic and growing market for SAA and we look forward to a very successful first edition.”
In addition to its traditional format, South African Airways and On Show Solutions will also introduce VIP buyer encounters. These dedicated sessions create an additional opportunity for top African travel specialists to meet suppliers through scheduled one-on-one appointments.
