Entries For Inaugural WTM Africa Travel & Tourism Awards Open

Entries for the inaugural WTM Africa Travel & Tourism Awards are open across 12 innovative categories which reward individuals, small and large organisations for powerful and compelling work in promoting tourism across Africa. Launched at WTM 2019, the WTM Africa Travel & Tourism Awards are to be judged by an independent panel of senior industry professionals and seek to showcase the best-in-class of the global travel & tourism industry.

The awards also seek to consolidate the various standalone awards that recognise outstanding travel and tourism businesses across the continent.

The names of the categories are a nod to the types of entries the judges are seeking, with the tale of the journey – rather than simply the result – at the forefront. The 12 categories are:

  • Most compelling National Tourism Board Story

  • Most compelling Regional/City Story

  • Most compelling Technology & Innovation Story

  • Most compelling Agency Story

  • Most compelling PR Story

  • Most compelling Digital Campaign in Tourism Story

  • Most compelling Digital Influencer Story

  • Most compelling Wellness Destination Story

  • Most compelling Responsible Tourism Story

  • Most compelling Adventure Story

  • Most compelling Foodie Story

  • Most compelling Inclusive Story

Only campaigns executed in the period 1 January 2018 to 31 December 2019 will be eligible for the 2020 WTM Africa Travel & Tourism Awards. For more details on each category, visit

Entries close on 31 January 2020 and the winners will be announced at the commencement of WTM Africa 2020 on 6 April at Gold Restaurant in Cape Town. To book your stand for #WTMA20 or apply to be a Hosted Buyer, visit
