Sundance Mountain Resort, Utah, USA
21-25 October 2018
For the first time, We Are Africa is going stateside at Sundance Mountain Resort in Utah, USA. The four-day pop-up event will combine immersive, inspiring thought-leadership with carefully curated business meetings and powerful bonding experiences for 120 tribe members who share a common purpose: to grow high-end travel from the USA to Africa, as part of their continued mission to rebrand African travel.
“Africa is too big, too creative and too dynamic not to play a major part in the international cultural scene. Anyone who ignores the continent is going to miss out in a major way.”
Kolade Adeyemo could easily have said the same about the role Africa is primed to play in the travel scene of the future. Its pristine beaches, diverse cultural heritage, unbeatable wildlife, tempting wines and award-winning luxury hotels are just a few reasons why the continent can no longer be held back by outdated stereotypes.
What’s the deal?
The USA is a hotbed for travel buyers serving high-net-worth clientele, many of whom aren’t able to attend We Are Africa in Cape Town. That’s why in 2018 we’re crossing the Atlantic and bringing with us some of the best high-end travel product the continent has to offer right to your doorstep.
Sundance Mountain Resort is a high-end hotel recognised as one of the top resort destinations in the world by both Condé Nast Traveler and Travel + Leisure. Plus, it’s only 50 minutes from Salt Lake City International Airport and 45 minutes from Park City.
Sundance is the ideal sanctuary: easy to reach, yet worlds apart.
How does it work?
With all tribe members staying onsite at Sundance Mountain Resort – in either lodging rooms or private mountain homes – for the duration of the event, We Are Africa at Sundance will be a highly immersive and all-inclusive experience, running from check-in at 2pm on Sunday 21 October until check-out at 11am on Thursday 25 October. The cost of attendance is £550 (excluding travel to and from Sundance Resort) and includes:
Four nights’ accommodation at Sundance Mountain Resort in either the resort’s lodging rooms or private mountain homes
One full-access delegate pass
Up to 30
Up to 30 pre-scheduled meetings with We Are Africa exhibitors
Interactive destination training
11 networking meals
Access to full event programme and networking sessions, including morning adventures, special activities, late-night cinema and closing party
WHAT WE’RE LOOKING FOR
