The events are sponsored by The Zambian Tourist Board and South African Airways.

Damian normally packs out conference venues around the world when he speaks on social media trends and we are thrilled to have him at our event with his selected guest speakers including Justine Head, former digital director of Visit Britain and Helen Egan Head of Destination Marketing at TripAdvisor. Social media is now driving our industry and Damian will bring you up to date with everything that touches tourism in this fast moving medium.
