Namibia is poised to host the prestigious AviaDev Africa conference in June 2024, alongside the Africa Hospitality Investment Forum (AHIF)

The conference will be a crucial platform for the local tourism sector to lure more visitors to Namibia.

The Namibia Airports Company (NAC) announced the collaboration, spotlighting the nation’s strategic efforts to enhance air connectivity within Africa and beyond.

With the theme ‘Igniting Connections and Propelling Growth,’ AviaDev Africa has emerged as the premier platform for fostering air travel development.

The NAC spokesperson, Dan Kamati, said that the potential of collective expertise from aviation leaders to produce impactful outcomes will significantly improve connectivity.

According to Kamati, the conference will draw over 35 airlines, showcasing Namibia’s readiness to engage in meaningful dialogue and partnerships.

Excitement about the upcoming conference was amplified by a collaborative networking reception held at Windhoek’s Mercure Hotel towards the end of last year.

It served as a precursor to the upcoming conferences, offering a platform for local businesses, government officials, and industry professionals to discuss the vast potential and explore opportunities for collaboration and growth.

These efforts are underpinned by Namibia’s strategic positioning as a growing hub for tourism, investment, and economic development.

Hosting the AviaDev conference solidifies Namibia’s commitment to the aviation and hospitality industries and opens doors to new opportunities, attracting international investors and industry leaders.

The Namibia Investment Promotion and Development Board (NIPDB) and NAC’s successful bid to host the event is clear evidence of Namibia’s ambition to improve revenue from the tourism sector further.

Nangula Uaandja, the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of NIPDB, expressed confidence in Namibia’s role within Africa’s hospitality and aviation landscapes, stressing the strategic importance of the June 2024 conferences.

Similarly, Bisey Uirab, CEO of the NAC echoed the sentiment, stressing the potential for economic development and sectoral advancement.

Jon Howell, CEO and Founder of AviaDev, shared the excitement within the aviation community about the opportunities that the conference will bring to the region.

The event promises to be a catalyst for new connections, business ventures, and the overall growth of Namibia’s hospitality and aviation sectors.

As Namibia prepares to host the landmark conference, the spotlight is firmly fixed on its untapped potential, cultural richness, and natural beauty, inviting tourists and investors alike to explore what the country has to offer.
