    Buyer application

    • I had a remarkable show and time very well spent during the entire event. Regardless of being a buyer or seller, it's a must to make good use of the FULL 3 days of events, especially the networking sessions.

    • I found the event really interesting and full of places perfect for our clients from Zambia to Botswana and Namibia, exactly what is needed for my business. I even met with some smaller family run options that I didn’t know existed.

    • What I really enjoy about ILTM Africa is meeting worldwide travellers that are specialising more and more on Southern Africa as the demand grows, and they are buyers that I did not even know existed!
