You are invited to the SATSA Annual Conference 2024 "This Is Us – Reflection, Presence, Growth" an innovative event that transcends traditional boundaries to create a shared, immersive experience.


This year 14 to 16 August 2024, we're embracing the concept of UnConference, where the usual spectators become dynamic participants, and the common monologue is transformed into soulful, collective conversations.


We invite you to contribute your voice, share your insights, and be an integral part of the collective journey. Break away from the norm, engage authentically, and emerge empowered to influence the future of tourism in Southern Africa.



Reflection – A dive deep into the essence of our past as we recount the milestones that have shaped the industry. We look back not only to remember but to understand and carry forward the lessons that have driven us to where we are today.


Presence – Engage in the now. Standing at the forefront of tourism, together, we'll explore our current landscape, celebrating successes, confronting challenges, and embracing the collective wisdom of our members.


Growth – Harness the collective intelligence of SATSA's ecosystem to create a collaborative vision, laying the foundations for innovation, and paving the way for sustainable growth.
