SPARK AN IDEA

2 -min. read

This year We Are Africa is turning the traditional conference model on its head with FUSE, our first un-conference in partnership with Wilderness Safaris and hosted at Grand Café & Beach – and we’re looking to you, the We Are Africa tribe (a.k.a. the brightest minds in the industry), to create the content.

There are plenty of ways to get involved: you can join a DISCUSS session, pull up a chair at INSPIRE… But if you’re really out to make an impact, SPARK is where it’s at. Taking place on the main stage, a SPARK is a quick-fire presentation designed to make maximum impact. Interested? Here’s how it works…

IT STARTS WITH A SPARK✨

SPARK is your chance to stand in front of Africa’s leading high-end travel experts – including innovative suppliers, specialist buyers and globally renowned press – and pitch your groundbreaking idea that will change the future of the industry. Check out this great example from Mike Davis at our sister un-conference, MATTER (PURE Life Experiences).

🌟ENERGISING IDEAS🌟

Whether it’s a top marketing tip or an on-the-ground initiative, a tech innovation or the human touch: this is your chance to shine and position yourself and your brand as true thought-leaders. We’re looking for ideas that challenge convention – the more radical, the better!

⚡️OVER IN A FLASH⚡️

You’ll deliver 15 slides in just three minutes and 45 seconds – that’s only 15 seconds per slide, so make it visually captivating and to-the-point.

🔥DON’T CRASH AND BURN🔥

Beware, this is NOT a sales pitch! You’ll lose your audience fast if you bore them with marketing drawl. We’re looking for out-of-the-box thinkers willing to collaborate as an industry to shape the future of African travel.

💥LIGHT THE FUSE💥
