Wetu plans global expansion

Wetu is preparing to introduce its brand to the world at Indaba. Following success in Africa, the company will continue to expand its presence on the continent. Wetu is looking forward to engaging with new audiences in person, to meet members of the global trade and teach them how Wetu is changing the way the travel industry sells. Wetu will be advocating the importance of content in travel, how to manage and showcase it in ways the modern traveller demands to consume it (such as iBrochures and interactive itineraries with add-on chat functionality), and how to win back time with better business practices.
