CEO of FEDHASA says The Hotel Show 2017 is a boost to the continent’s tourism and hospitality sector

The organisers of The Hotel Show, one of the world’s most successful exhibitions, today announced a strategic partnership with Federated Hospitality Association of Southern Africa (FEDHASA) for its Africa launch.

The Hotel Show Africa 2017 takes place in Johannesburg from June 25 to 27 organised by dmg-ems Africa, part of dmg events Middle East, Asia & Africa, which revealed in June it would bring the format to the continent.

“The arrival of The Hotel Show brings a recognised global brand to Africa and we are pleased that dmg has chosen South Africa,” says Tshifhiwa Tshivhengwa, CEO of FEDHASA.

“The Hotel Show Africa will bring a new focus to the Africa hospitality industry and with it a network of potential owners, operators, buyers, investors and developers from leading hotel and restaurant names.

Tshivhengwa said: “A forum such as this brings a wealth of opportunity for owners, managers and suppliers in terms of connecting with each other, meeting new contacts, generating business but also for gaining essential insight and knowledge share, and FEDHASA is pleased to be a part of it.”

Vice President of dmg-ems events Christine Davidson said: “I am very excited to bring such a fantastic industry event to Africa. Tourism growth is dependent upon having the right infrastructure and understanding the direction of the market worldwide.
