ATA announces new dates for 38th Annual World Congress in Cameroon

The Africa Travel Association (ATA) announced today that new dates have been set for the 38th annual ATA World Congress in Cameroon. The event will be held from Wednesday, October 16, to Monday, October 21, 2013.

After discussions between the Cameroonian Minister of Tourism and Leisure, the Local Organising Congress Committee and ATA’s International Board of Directors, it was agreed to change the dates of the congress.

“The key stakeholders decided that it would allow further time for the host country [Cameroon] to handle the logistics of the sizable event,” said Edward Bergman, ATA’s Executive Director. “Shifting the annual congress away from its historical date in May to October would also be a more convenient time on the travel industry calendar to host such an important industry event.”

Arik Air will be the official U.S. congress carrier and will offer discounted rates to Douala for delegates attending the 2013 ATA Congress in Cameroon.
