The 2019 Africa’s Travel Indaba will take place from May 2-4, 2019 at the Inkosi Albert Luthuli International Convention Centre in Durban.
This means that Indaba has been brought forward by four days.Last week, President Cyril Ramaphosa, announced in his State of the Nation (SONA) Address that the national election will take place on May 8, which would have coincided with Indaba.
A task team was set up by the CEO of South African Tourism (SA Tourism), Sisa Ntshona, to explore all available options and it was decided that moving Indaba forward was the best possible option.
The task team took into account various factors and permutations in reaching the new date.
Ntshona said the national election is the cornerstone of democracy and is a celebration of our freedom in South Africa.
