    The Tourism ecosystem in Africa is evolving rapidly and now is the right time to connect and attract the best brains using technology as a launch pad to change the narratives.
    There are new intersections for African narratives and opportunities in Afrotourism.Technology is an open avenue which creative can explore to build businesses and create opportunities for prosperity around them.

    Africa has huge potentials for Tourism through their youthful population but is still struggling with an uncharted and uncoordinated roadmap to achieve huge windfalls from that sector. Experts have advised on how to reconstruct the Tourism ecosystem in Africa through Technology by identifying challenges and opportunities.
    Emerging Startups and an SME Ecosystem could just be the trigger needed for the role in redefining Tourism in Africa as a whole.
    Our role at TOURISM AND TECHNOLOGY HACKATHON SUMMIT is to develop a hub for this emerging innovations and provide a platform to showcase these innovations to the world and by extension invite venture capitalists and equity investors to have a buy in into some of these innovations.
    The primary aim for this community would be to engender solutions to numerous problems facing the tourism sector in Africa and how it can be easier to deploy technology to solve these problems.
