South Africa's most popular travel trade shows, including World Travel Market Africa and Travel Indaba, have been postponed due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
Travel Indaba was originally scheduled for the beginning of May. A future date for Africa's Travel Indaba will be disclosed soon, according to South African minister of tourism Mmamoloko Kubayi-Ngubane.
"We will review the decision, depending on how the situation evolves and, working in consultation with industry stakeholders, we will advise on future dates," said Kubayi-Ngubane.
Meanwhile, Reed Exhibitions Africa confirmed that Africa Travel Week, which comprises World Travel Market Africa and International Luxury Travel Market Africa, will not take place in 2020. It had been scheduled for April.
