In its endeavour to promote the region, RETOSA attends events that attract tour operators and agents who will in turn promote the region as a destination of choice. RETOSA will be attending the Africa Showcase in North America from 26 to 30 September. Africa Showcase highlights exceptional travel products and experiences from the southern African tour operators and travel agents from across America. The event is designed to create strong business connections between southern African specialists and the suppliers participating in the roadshows. RETOSA will have meetings to present southern Africa to wholesalers, tour operators and travel agents. RETOSA is scheduled to attend 35 meetings in Fort Lauderdale and Denver where the roadshow will be held with VIP buyers. “We are really looking forward to this opportunity as we know that our region offers so much,” said Mr Kwakye Donkor, RETOSA’S Director of marketing and communications.
