Preferred Travel of Naples’ travel advisor Wendy Taylor was recently invited to attend the annual “We Are Africa” travel event in Cape Town. The exclusive, by invitation only event, exposed Taylor and other invited guests to the many luxury travel opportunities on the continent of Africa.
The travel expo event brought together travel companies and agencies from around the world and connected them with luxury hotels, camps, destinations specialists and safari companies. The three day event included seminars by world renowned speakers and meetings with the luxury African hotels and companies.
“Not too many agencies like Preferred Travel are approved to attend; the invitations usually go to the mega agencies and top travel experts in the world,” said Wilma Boyd, President of Preferred Travel Naples. “The application process to attend is not easy but we were invited this year, which is a huge deal for our company.”
Approval and vetting is required to attend and includes a rigorous application process based on production, reputation and potential; to be approved Preferred Travel of Naples had to have the endorsement of three luxury African suppliers and African hoteliers.
Taylor was also selected to be one of only eight to attend the Zeitz MOCAA (Museum of Contemporary Art Africa) hard hat viewing of the new museum to be opened this fall.
“We Are Africa” is dedicated to projecting a more modern and dynamic image outwards and bringing a plethora of new business into their continent. In cooperation with Africa’s best travel brands, they are dedicated to telling the many stories of their diverse countries and people.
