The second South African Travel and Tourism Industry Conference (SATTIC) will take place 9-10 October in Johannesburg. SATTIC is a collaboration between five tourism industry associations affiliated to the Tourism Business Council of South Africa; The Southern Africa Tourism Services Association (SATSA); the National Accommodation Association of South Africa (NAA-SA); the Association of South African Travel Agents (Asata); the Federated Hospitality Association of Southern Africa (Fedhasa) and the Southern African Vehicle Rental and Leasing Association (Savrala).
The main objective of SATTIC is to discuss issues of common interest in the industry and to review progress in the implementation of the National Tourism Sector Strategy. The theme for this year’s conference is ‘understanding the value of the traveller’ and will have a specific focus on how best to serve consumers through the various products and services available.
“Following the success of the inaugural conference last year, the date of the conference has been moved to October to avoid conflict with other major industry events and to allow space for all role-players to participate. While the conference was mainly targeting tourism business executives and product owners, the organisers were extending an invitation to all stakeholders in the private and public tourism sectors to participate. We will also announce a venue in due course, " said a statement by the TBCSA.
