African Travel Association (ATA) and the Ministry of Tourism Wildlife and Antiquities are to collaborate and launch a road show in North America intending to entice North Americans to plan safaris to Uganda.
The African Travel Association expressed that a high caliber tourism entourage from the Uganda’s Ministry of tourism under the umbrella of the Tourism Minister Maria Mutagamba is meant to involve itself in North America promotional road show making stops in cities of Los Angeles, Washington DC, Atlanta, New york and Toronto in Canada at the beginning of September. This is a portion of the promotions for 39th ATA annual World congress that will take place from 11 – 16, November 2014 in Kampala Uganda which will directly or indirectly increase safaris in Uganda.
The purpose of this Road show is to structure business connections and affiliations between Ugandan tourism industry players and American tour operators and travel agents. This would in turn shape a brighter future as the travellers will be prompted to buy Uganda safari packages such as gorilla safari.
The schedule for this attempt is as follows; 6:00 pm September 2nd in Los Angeles, 6:00 pm September 3rd Atlanta, 6:00 pm September 4th in Washington, D.C., 6:00 pm September 8th New York and 6:00 pm September 10th in Toronto. There will be an evening networking reception in every stop city hosted by African Travel Association and local tour operators in order to publicize the 39th Annual World Congress and the destination Uganda in particular. On similar occasions, Brussels Airlines which have been identified as the official Airline of this congress will issue out tickets to be won by those in attendance. This initiative is predicted to publicize the safari destination of Uganda in the region of North America and eventually leading to increased Uganda safaris.
