Tanzania: Karibu Fair Attracts 250 Exhibitors

Regional and international visitors from the travel and tourism industries across the region are set to converge in Arusha from June 8th to 10th to showcase the widest variety of East Africa's tourism products and services at the Karibu Travel and Tourism Fair.

Arusha will be overflowing with exciting activities related to East Africa's most dramatic annual travel and tourism event. Nearly 3000 international and regional visitors and stakeholders are expected to attend the fair, where business networks will be established, new tourist destinations discovered, and innovative products presented.

The fair will focus strongly on emerging trends and developments in the travel and tourism sectors, both regional and international.

The Karibu Travel and Tourism Fair is a three-day event, jointly organized by the Tanzania Association of Tour Operators (TATO), the Tanzania Tourist Board (TTB), and the Ministry of Natural Resources and Tourism (MNRT). The fair will be held at the Magereza open grounds, located close to the Arusha airport.

Over 250 exhibitors from the region are expected to attend the fair, which has been pushed back a week from the originally established date (from 1 to 3 June), because of a conflict in scheduling with another significant event in Arusha.

Tanzania emerged as a winner at a similar event, popularly known as INDABA, held in Durban, South Africa, from May 12 to 15, 2012. There Tanzania received an award for the best exhibition! According to Mr. Geoffrey Tengeneza, public relations officer of the Government and Tanzania Tourist Board (TTB), other nations in the region recognize that Tanzania's tourist destinations continue to dazzle and attract visitors from all continents.
