Zanzibar, located on the Indian Ocean off the coast of mainland Tanzania, is a separate state within the United Republic of Tanzania. Popularly known as the "spice islands," Zanzibar consists of Unguja (known as Zanzibar Island), Pemba and some 50 smaller surrounding islands and islets.
The Hon. Mohammed Aboud Mohammed, Zanzibar's Minister of Trade, Industry, Marketing and Tourism, has extended his government's full support to ensure the success of the ATA event. "The timing of Africa Travel Association's 7th Cultural and Ecotourism Symposium for Zanzibar is excellent," said Hon. Mohammed. "We have just completed a Tourism Master Plan and are in the process of establishing a new brand for Zanzibar. World renowned as an exotic beach and water sports destination, Zanzibar's new focus will be on the archipelago's rich cultural history and festivals; as well as sustainable tourism and environmental development especially in Pemba. Zanzibar will launch its first public/private sector tourism campaign in partnership with the newly formed private sector organization, the Zanzibar Association of Tourism Investors (ZATI). Until now we have not yet tapped into the enormous potential market for cultural and sustainable tourism programs in North America. We look forward to hosting ATA and opening that door a little wider for American and Canadian tourists to Zanzibar."
