January 2019 updates

We, at AFRICA TRAVEL ALLIANCE, want to take this opportunity ´╗┐to wish you a very happy and successful year for 2019!

Happy New Year 2019

NEW for 2019... after listening to our members we have implemented a new policy for trade shows and conferences, we will limit participation (at trade shows) to one company per country in the interest of allowing this one company to maximize their exposure. This is applicable if you want to come participate in the show or to have us represent you. Space is available on a first come, first served basis so please review the marketing opportunities listed below and reserve your spot early!
Our marketing opportunities are open for registered members of Africa Travel Alliance.

A reminder that we only send leads - as we get them - to members who feature the Africa Travel Alliance logo on their website. This is a requirement for membership.

NOT A MEMBER?

Membership is FREE! Contact Kevin for details how to become a member.

What people are saying...

...about working with Africa Travel Alliance

"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!"

Prince Sabena, Owner Redroad Tours,
Uganda (with services in Rwanda and Kenya)


"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."
