TRAVEL ROUNDTABLE

BUILDING A
CAREER IN
TOURISM

Travel and tourism is one of the fastest growing sectors in the world supporting over 284 million jobs worldwide according to World Travel 8c Tourism Council (WTTC). The forecast for the industry is positive, but is there significant attention to the development of local talent to match the expected growth? How are we meeting our manpower needs and solving one of the continent’s biggest problems unemployment?

SINGLE AIR
AFRICAN TRAVEL
MARKET & WEST
AFRICAN
INTEGRATED
TRAVEL:
Changing
Boundaries For
African Tourism

The journey to the Single Air African Travel Market began on 7th October 1988 with the Yamoussoukro Declaration to create a conducive environment for intra-African air-connectivity. Early in 2018 West Africa Tourism Organization in partnership with Ghana Tourism Board kickstarted the West African Integrated Travel to promote tourism in the West African sub-region. How is Nigeria positioning her tourism products and environment to derive maximum benefit from these landscape-changing agreements/developments? Will Nigeria continue to be just a source market for the world or act to tap into the over one billion African market?

WHERE’S THE
MONEY:
Investment
Opportunities
In Nigerian
Tourism

About 41 percent of Africa’s population lives on less than $1 per day. For Nigeria, with a population of about 200 million, the situation is worse, with over 61% living on less than a dollar a day. Tourism is one of the biggest drivers of economic development in the world and is successfully being used to fight poverty and unemployment in several countries. Why  are we lagging behind? Are there viable investment opportunities? What are the stumbling blocks? Do we have the market for tourism investment?

TOMORROW’S
TECH FOR
TODAY’S TRAVEL

Technology is changing the way we do things world over. For tourism, technology becomes a useful tool or barrier in the way we EXCITE our audiences or market; the way BOOKINGS are made by tourists; the EXPERIENCE created; and whether valuable FEEDBACK is gotten or lost. What’s new in tourism technology we should be paying attention to?
