Ministry of Tourism and Leisure of Cameroon to Host the Africa Travel Association’s 38th Annual World Congress in October



ATA’s 38th Annual World Congress will take place in the English speaking Southwest region of Cameroon, with a focus on Buea, the regional capital, and Limbe, a seaside city. The event is co-sponsored by Cameroon’s Ministry of Tourism and Leisure, and will be held at the new Mountain Hotel located on the southern slopes of Mount Cameroon, one of Africa’s highest peaks and largest volcanoes.

The 2013 Congress offers plenty of opportunities for learning about Africa’s latest trends and products, networking and building business linkages, and exploring Cameroon’s latest products and services.

Expected participants are tourism ministers and industry experts representing tourism boards, tour operators and their product development executives, front-line agents, ground operator companies, airlines and hotels. Participants from the travel trade media and the corporate, nonprofit and academic sectors are also expected to attend, along with African Diaspora representatives and ATA’s Young Professionals Program participants.
