2017 Pearl of Africa Tourism Expo dates confirmed

The Uganda Tourism Board will be hosting the third PEARL OF AFRICA TOURISM EXPO (POATE 2017) between the 17th to 19th of February 2017 at the Kololo Independence Grounds in Kampala, Uganda.

The main aim of hosting POATE is to create a common networking platform for the Ugandan tourism industry but also for stakeholders from the wider region as well as the overseas tourism source markets.

UTB's vision, working with tourism partners, is to develop POATE into one of the most effective networking platforms in the East African Region within the shortest time possible. Towards that end is POATE seeking to invite only those buyers and media personnel that will exceed the expectations of the sellers and guarantee a 'return on investment' for the country.

It was confirmed earlier today that UTB intends to bring in at least a hundred hosted buyers and tourism / travel media from USA, Canada, United Kingdom, Russia, Australia, France, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Netherlands, Italy, Poland, Czech Republic, Spain, Finland, Brazil, Israel, Turkey, Saudi Arabia, Japan, India, UAE, Morocco, India, Malaysia, China and as well as South Africa, Zambia, Zimbabwe, Kenya, Tanzania, Rwanda, Ghana and Nigeria from the African region.
