NOT ONE STORY
2000 languages. 54 countries. 1 continent.
Africa is rightly renowned for its beautiful landscapes and beautiful animals. However, it’s also so much more: a collection of many people, many voices, and many stories.
Similarly, We Are Africa is far more than a trade event. Each year brings a carefully curated selection of travel brands, world-class buyers and press to Cape Town, united by the determination to tell their individual stories of Africa.
Together, our tribe is challenging outdated, negative and monotone perceptions of the continent through travel. In demonstrating the uniqueness of each African country, we stand united in diversity.
BECAUSE WE ARE NOT ONE STORY. WE ARE AFRICA.
