Talent development, capacity building and education are crucial components of the TOURISM AND TECHNOLOGY SUMMIT . Initiatives include training, internship and scholarship programmes, as well as the development of knowledge management platforms and networks, in which the most up-to-date tools for fostering skilled workforce in specific industries of tourism can be exchanged and developed using technology as a springboard

The main aim of talent development, capacity building and education in the context of the building a new ecosystem for tourism in Africa using technology  is to bridge theory and practice with the empowerment of the current and future workforce by equipping them with the appropriate tools to contribute to the advancement of innovation in  tourism. The Community is an ideal forum to facilitate knowledge transfer and dissemination across all levels of the value chain.
