Africa’s Investour Forum Renewed For Sixth Year



On May 13, The UNWTO’s headquarters provided the setting for the renewal of the collaboration agreement for the sixth staging of the Tourism Business and Investment Forum for Africa, Investour, which will be organized jointly by the UNWTO, FITUR and Casa Africa within the framework of FITUR 2015.

At its last event, the forum brought together 269 participants and a total of 134 sustainable investment projects located in different parts of the African Continent, as well as hosting some 287 B2B meetings.

The aim of the forum is to promote cooperation between African and Spanish businesspeople in relation to hotel infrastructures and sustainable projects, as well as to foster the exchange of technological know-how and training, offering institutions and businesspeople a unique opportunity to work together on tourism matters.

Over the five Investour events that have been staged to date, around 800 African projects from 45 countries have been presented to more than 1,000 participants.
