Web in Travel announces Africa launch

Web in Travel (WiT) will launch WiT Africa in Cape Town in May 2020.

The launch of an African edition was inspired by the continent’s emerging market growth and its rising population of highly mobile, young and urban middle class.

WiT will make its African debut with three Foundation Sponsors: Travelstart, Wego and Cleartrip.

The event will be held at the Belmond Mount Nelson Hotel and is expected to welcome up to 200 delegates. The main theme will unpack how rapid digitisation is creating choice and affordability for a diverse set of customers, and how they must adapt.

The programme will also emphasise Africa’s start-up ecosystem and how it is creating new opportunities for entrepreneurs.
