Africa Travel Association to Present as Featured Panelist

Travel providers and planners from 30 countries on six continents will gather in Orlando, Florida, Oct. 29-Nov. 1, for the inaugural World Religious Travel Expo and Educational Conference. The Africa Travel Association and several African-based safari operators count among the more than 100 exhibitors participating in the historic event. The Expo represents a burgeoning industry estimated at $18 billion and 300 million travelers. The World Religious Travel Association (WRTA) extends a personal invitation to members of the Africa Travel Association to attend or exhibit at the Expo.

"As faith tourism is experiencing record growth throughout the world, Africa represents a destination with tremendous potential within the religious market. For this reason we are honored to host the Africa Travel Association (ATA), as one of our featured panelists," said Kevin J. Wright, president of WRTA. "The Expo serves as a tremendous opportunity to meet face-to-face with hundreds of the leading buyers and sellers in the religious travel and hospitality marketplace."

Destinations, tour operators, cruise lines, attractions, hotel properties, and a host of other providers and planners from Africa, the Americas, Asia, Australia, the Caribbean, Europe and the Holy Land will be represented at this assembly of Who's Who in the growing faith tourism industry.

The WRTA Expo will feature two venues: The International Tradeshow and The Educational Conference. The combined event provides a one-stop opportunity for hundreds of travel suppliers, destinations and wholesalers to meet in person and develop partnerships, introduce new products and services, generate qualified leads and build long-term relationships. In addition, participants will learn from more than 50 travel industry leaders who will be serving as speakers and panelists in the most comprehensive educational program ever assembled on faith tourism.

The Expo will be held Oct. 29-Nov. 1, 2008 at the Gaylord Palms Resort Hotel & Convention Center in Orlando.  For more information or to register, visit Or email WRTA Expo staff at or call 1-800-657-1288 (ext. 101) or 859-226-4233
