How we represent your interests on the international tourism stage

Widely recognised as “A Voice for Africa”, ATTA® represents its members and African tourism interests at the highest levels, in a continuing dialogue with many tourism ministries, tourist authorities and associations across the African continent. The ATTA® President and Chairman represents the African tourism industry on many international committees and councils including World Travel Market, PURE, The United Nations Tourism Emergency Response Network, the UK Foreign Office Tourism Advisory Council and the Madrid based United Nations World Tourism Organisation (UNWTO).


Crisis Management: ATTA® in times of Crisis

ATTA® plays a leading role linking member to media in the event of accidents or emergencies involving tourists in Africa. The national and regional news media consistently contact ATTA® for information on breaking news items affecting tourists in Africa. Working with the tour operator, ground operator and product supplier in Africa and the national tourist board where possible, ATTA® acts in a central role, briefing the news media on behalf of ATTA® members, whilst accumulating and disseminating information so that all parties are reliably informed.
