Who are Africa’s most inspiring tourism storytellers? Africa Travel Week is on the lookout for the most inspiring and compelling storytellers in the African tourism industry for the African Travel & Tourism Awards presented by WTM Africa.

The 2023 Awards will be themed ‘Rooted in Africa and will celebrate those storytellers who are inspiring people to experience Africa.

“The African Travel & Tourism Awards presented by WTM Africa aim to shine a spotlight on expectational individuals and businesses who are shaping and transforming the industry through the tourism stories they tell,” says Megan De Jager (née Oberholzer), RX Africa Portfolio Director: Travel, Tourism & Marketing.

“These annual awards serve as a platform for worthy initiatives to receive well-deserved international recognition, but also to showcase the African continent as a varied destination brimming with soul-stirring experiences.”

Free to enter, the 2023 Awards consists of the following nine categories:

● Most Compelling Tourism Story

● Most Compelling Agency Story

● Most Compelling Digital Campaign Story

● Most Compelling Responsible Tourism Story

● Most Compelling Adventure Story

● Most Compelling Foodie Story

Entries close on 31 January 2023. After that, an independent panel of nine experts will judge entries based on various criteria such as tone, visibility, messaging, and brand or campaign perception.

All nominees will be advised on 28 February 2023, earning a rightful seat at the prestigious Awards dinner. Category winners will be going forward to compete in the International Travel & Tourism Awards presented by World Travel Market London.

“We have seen the world of tourism and events reopen and reignite. Through these awards, we aim to recognise the industry campaigns and initiatives that have played an integral part in the revival and recovery of our beautiful industry.

It’s time to celebrate those industry leaders and pioneers who continue to pave the way for others to succeed,” concludes Carol Weaving, MD South Africa for RX Africa.

Wow! Stunning! Hilton seems to be taking Africa by storm. Just a couple of years back, they opened the first ever in Eswatini.

Thank you for sharing such a detailed review about ethiopian airlines in your post. I am an avid traveller and keep reading flight reviews to assess the options available. Your review particularly drew my attention because you have shared so many pictures to capture every aspect of the flight experience. It is a very nice effort.

I am really tempted to book the next ethiopian airlines ticket and relive your journey. The pictures shared with the post also reflect that you truly enjoyed the travel. Great post! I also like the fact that you have covered nuances about the food and entertainment service through the pictures. It helps people know what to expect on their travel by this airline.
