The following stakeholders along the value chain are encouraged to participate:
· Destination Marketing Companies
· Tourism Boards
· Marketing, public relation, communication, advertising, and branding firms
· Start-ups and innovators
· Brand and Digital experts
Only campaigns executed in the period from 01 January 2020 to 30 May 2021 will be eligible for the Reigniting Africa Award. Participants can register their interest by signing up on the WTM Africa website here.
