The Botswana Tourism Organisation (BTO)is set for this year’s Botswana Travel and Tourism Expo (BTTE) scheduled to take place from the 29th of November to 3rd December 2022 in Kasane. The annual tourism expo provides an opportunity for the global tourism industry to meet on a one-on-one basis with their Botswana tourism industry counterparts to trade and agree on future tourism packages for our global tourists.
The BTTE since its inception in 2013 has aimed at establishing a network between local operators and their global counterparts, creating a sales platform for local tour operators to discuss and agree on tour packages and provide global wholesalers an opportunity to visit Botswana and familiarise them with the various products.
A total of 140 companies from around the world have confirmed their participation and will in turn meet 150 local operators for the unique strategic networking opportunity and special insight into the Botswana Tourism product.
BTTE will host twenty-eight (28) countries from across Africa, Europe, USA, Asia & Australia through the participating Agents and Buyers.
The return of this year’s BTTE is expected to offer also a unique platform for international trade buyers and media to experience ‘first-hand’ the Botswana tourism product to enable them a chance to sell packages to Botswana easily.
Fifteen (15) Local craft producers and suppliers of other consumable goods and services produced locally will attend the open-air exhibition, intended to bring them closer to the industry, with the aim to promote their various products and services.
There would be various platforms to network with local travel and tourism companies for product packaging and enhancement; inclusive of Interactive destination workshops which are curated in a ‘storytelling’ format to intensely educate the travel industry about the Botswana tourism product. The event is open to Licensed Local Tourism Operators who have registered for participation.
