Africa's Travel Indaba 2019 dates brought forward

The 2019 Africa's Travel Indaba will take place from 2-4 May 2019 at the Inkosi Albert Luthuli International Convention Centre in Durban. The dates were changed after President Cyril Ramaphosa announced that the national election will take place on 8 May 2019, which would have clashed with the indaba.

A task team was set up by the CEO of South African Tourism (SA Tourism), Sisa Ntshona, to explore all available options and it was decided that moving Indaba forward was the best possible option.

The task team comprised of representatives of the following organisations:
  • SA Tourism
  • Department of Tourism
  • Durban ICC
  • Tourism KZN
  • Tourism Business Council of South Africa (TBCSA)
  • eThekwini


The task team took into account various factors and permutations in reaching the new date.

“The national election is the cornerstone of our democracy and is a celebration of our freedom in South Africa,” says Ntshona.

“It’s an important date and occasion for all South Africans and we need to acknowledge and respect the date.”
