COVID-19: ILTM and WTM Africa 2020 to go Ahead with Precautions
While several major international events have been cancelled amidst fears of the spread of the COVID-19 virus, Reed Exhibitions South Africa has advised that there are no plans to cancel ILTM or WTM Africa in Cape Town, running 2-8 April 2020.
Following the cancellation of ITB Berlin, organizers said the decision to hold ILTM and WTM Africa was made based on the fact that the exhibitors fall outside of high risk COVID-19 areas.
In terms of International Buyers, the following countries’ attendees will no longer be visiting WTM Africa 2020 in the interest of health and safety: China, Korea, Iran, and Italy.
Attendees from these four listed countries have been replaced with waitlisted Buyers from other countries. This will help ensure that exhibitors at the event will still enjoy a successful show.
Further to this, additional hygiene precautions have been put in place and furthermore, alcohol-based hand sanitisers and tissues will be placed throughout the venue.
ILTM Africa takes place at Moyo, Kirstenbosch National Botanical Garden from 2-4 April. Find
