The Uganda Tourism Board (UTB) will host the 5th annual Pearl of Africa Tourism Expo (POATE) from February 4-6 at the Speke Resort in Munyonyo.

The three-day tourism and travel trade exhibition will bring together regional and international tour operators, travel agents, destination agencies and other service providers to network and facilitate tourism business.

Lilly Ajarova, UTB CEO, says the theme for POATE 2020 will be to inspire high-value engagement to promote intra-Africa travel for leisure, business and adventure to raise Uganda’s profile as a preferred destination in the region and internationally.

POATE 2020 will integrate a business-to-business trade event on the first two days with a business-to-consumer trade event on the last day.
