JOHANNESBURG, Feb. 1 (Xinhua) -- South African and international tourism operators will meet in Johannesburg later this month at Meetings Africa 2018 where they will discuss how to improve the sector.

This was said by Amanda Kotze-Nhlapo, the chief convention bureau officer at South African Tourism media roundtable held in Johannesburg on Thursday.

Meetings Africa 2018 will take place in Johannesburg on February 26-28. Kotze-Nhlapo said the meeting will enable exhibitors in the business opportunities to network with key decision makers in the industry. It would also provide a platform to showcase their products and services to hundreds of global buyers and event planners.

"The theme is a critical component of the work that our industry does which of course is way beyond tourism. While Meetings Africa has shown its commitment to sustainability by introducing the use of low cost energy, eco-friendly material, recycled paper and being carbon footprint conscious; the goal this year is to expand the overall conversation and focus on how collaboration help us find innovative solutions to bettering the lives of our people," Kotze-Nhlapo said.
