Africa Travel Week, in conjunction with World Travel Market Africa and International Luxury Travel Market Africa, will launch a new weekly podcast in August: Unlock Africa.
In the spirit of #MakingTravelHappenAgain, the podcast will be a regular feature on the ATW Connect website.
“We are thrilled to launch our foray into podcasting with a strong focus on some of the women who make the wheels of our continent’s tourism and travel industry turn. Each week, we will be featuring an interview with some of Africa’s most dynamic tourism women, particularly fitting as Pan African Women’s Day falls on July 31 and South Africans celebrate Women’s Day on August 9,” says Martin Hiller, RX Africa Creative & Content Director: Travel, Tourism & Creative Industries.
The current line-up includes Judy Kepher Gona, Director of Sustainable Travel & Tourism Agenda; Phakamile Hlazo, founder of Zulu Nomad; and Monika Iuel, CMO of Wesgro.
“The recorded panel discussions and presentations from our bumper content programme at WTM Africa in April are all still available for viewing on demand on ATW Connect, along with several other insight pieces reflecting the issues affecting our continent’s tourism industry today, from responsible tourism to diversity and inclusivity,” adds Hiller.
