SATSA - 2019 Conference - Overview

Come celebrate 50 years of thought leadership in tourism with SATSA at its Annual Conference at the Wild Coast Sun from 9 to 11 July!

We’re looking forward to commemorating 50 years of SATSA history and influence with old and new friends from SATSA’s 1,200-strong membership at this auspicious event.

Over the past 50 years, SATSA has evolved as one of the most recognised brands of tourism credibility and a strong voice representing tourism businesses across the inbound channel. Today, SATSA continues to change the face of tourism in Southern Africa and beyond.

With such a monumental milestone under our belt, the time has come to turn things on its head with this year’s event.

In the past five years, the SATSA conference has run with a format of panel discussions. Following feedback that this may have run its course, we believe it is time to enhance the event by bringing in the essence of why so many of us go to conference after all – to be together, to network and have fun.

So, you can expect a fresh new look for this SATSA conference with a more modular format, interesting insights from thought leaders, an innovative line-up of topics and speakers and, most of all, a whole new approach to networking.
