Zambia Tourism invites exhibitors to ZATEX 2018


The Zambia Tourism Agency (ZTA) will be hosting the fourth edition of the Zambia Travel Expo (ZATEX), from 12th to the 14th of April 2018 in Lusaka, Zambia.

The main aim of hosting ZATEX is to substantially expand the tourism client base for destination Zambia by not only having quality travel trade and key travel media attend the show but by also arranging for face to face interaction with industry stakeholders and decision makers. The Zambia Travel Expo gives attendees a competitive advantage in the industry because they get to sample the various tourism products that the country has on offer through product familiarisation tours.

Zambia Tourism Agency has been working hand in hand with industry partners to mould ZATEX into the most significant centrally located tourism marketing hub in the Southern African Region where people can be au fait with the latest developments within the Region’s Tourism Industry. It is in this vein, that Zambia Tourism Agency seeks to bring to ZATEX only those buyers and media personnel that will exceed the expectations of the sellers.

ZTA therefore invites you to participate in the 2018 Zambia Travel Expo as a hosted Buyer/or Media. We have no doubt in our minds that you will bring so much value to the expo through cutting various deals with suppliers.
