What is Africa Travel Alliance?

For those who are new to this newsletter, Africa Travel Alliance is an organization that helps companies in the tourism, hospitality and transportation industries based on the African continent. There is no membership fee! We will feature your company logo / information on our website and, in return, you must feature our website (with link) prominently on your website. As long as you are a properly licensed company in your country, you are eligible to be featured on our website.

 

We do a number of trade shows and sales mission in North America which give you opportunities to promote your organization. Essentially, we are a co-op of companies and you are able to participate in as many (or as few) marketing opportunities as your budget allows. We cover a number of different markets including Retail, M.I.C.E. (Meetings / Incentives / Convention / Exhibition), Faith / Religious, Student and Wholesale. You are not required to participate in any show. We do have other opportunities to advertise via AFRICA TRAVEL ALLIANCE including advertising in our monthly email newsletters or via advertorials.

 

Our members save money by sharing in participation fees for the trade shows and sales missions by going in under "Africa Travel Alliance" rather than your individual company.

 

Another benefit of working with AFRICA TRAVEL ALLIANCE is that you choose which market(s) you want to develop within your budget and with the advantage of working with an established marketing company.

"Our first experience was working together for the Southern Baptist Convention – from the preparation before the convention including professional advice in preparing promotional material, registering for the convention, booking the hotel, meeting me at the airport, and facilitating my stay in the US, Kevin’s hospitality was apparent.

 

His help at our booth introducing Daniel & Frey Tours and walking the convention floor to introduce me to make connections with potential clients was invaluable.

I thank you, Kevin, and God bless you – your service is excellent! We look forward to working with Africa Travel Alliance in promoting and marketing Ethiopia in the USA long term."

"It’s been a privilege working with Kevin. We have benefited greatly from his vast experience and knowledge of the international travel industry. These past two years, he has gone above and beyond his call of duty in order to see us succeed.

 

We have most appreciated his flexibility that has enabled him to accommodate the needs and limits of a small and Africa-based company like Redroad Tours, and his creativity and thoughtfulness that has helped us improve and redesign our products to suit our target market.

 

We are forever indebted to you Kevin. Thank you!"
