Every May, travel agents and tour operators converge below Mount Kilimanjaro and the crater of Mt. Meru for the East African travel event of the year. Originally started to showcase East African tour operators and destinations, the Karibu Travel and Trade Fair has been so successful that it’s reputation has spread to the travel industry overseas, and each year attendance by exhibitors and visitors far exceeds the last.
The Karibu Travel and Trade Fair this time will take place between 1st to 3rd June 2018 and is to be held in the town of Moshi, just hours away from main safari destinations in Tanzania. Mt. Kilimanjaro, Lake Manyara, Tarangire, Ngorongoro Crater, and the Serengetiare literally on your doorstep. This event started in 2004 and it is East Africa’s largest tourism promotion event. Over 500 participants are expected from East Africa — lodges, tour and camp operators — will display their products and meet with international visitors to encourage and promote tourism in East Africa. Between 20,000 and 50,000 visitors are expected to attend this event in Urban Moshi Town.
During the fair, overseas agents and delegates meet with exclusive tour operators, lodge managers, safari guides, and the people who add that special touch to a Tanzanian safari that makes it such a memorable experience. Agents have the opportunity to visit the properties they promote firsthand, and get to know the companies their business supports. The Karibu Travel and Trade Fair allows visiting delegates the opportunity to experience the warm hospitality of East Africa while networking and expanding business contacts at the same time — an irresistible combination.
