It is estimated that Africa has the world’s youngest and fastest growing population, set to reach 2.5 billion by 2050.  According to the 2024 Africa Outlook Report, ‘Africa is set to become the world’s second fastest growing region in 2024, driven by a resurgence in travel, tourism, and hospitality with investment, improved international connectivity and a strong demand for quality accommodation.’

“Tourism is the largest contributor to GDP across the African continent, with six of the world’s fastest growing economies found in Africa, making this event incredibly relevant for hospitality industry leaders to attend,” according to Margaret Peters, Event Manager: Food & Hospitality at dmg events South Africa.

This year’s keynote address from Jeff Blackbeard, Director of Sector and Markets from Moore Global, and Lee-anne Singer from The Singer Group, as they join forces to discuss the trends that will determine Africa’s hospitality journey as a vibrant, international destination, as sustainability and technology transform this sector.

‘Key trends this year include implementing Artificial Intelligence (AI), with almost 1-in-4 businesses  reportedly using AI tools to enhance operations’, according to the African Hospitality Confidence Index 2024.

‘Business and leisure, or ‘bleisure’ tourists have also become increasingly popular, as growing remote working patterns gain momentum. The greater emphasis on work-life balance is set to shape the tourism and hospitality industry even further over the next decade, with the value of the global bleisure market expected to more than double from 2022 levels to $731.4 billion globally by 2032.’
