The Africa Travel Association (ATA), working in collaboration and partnership with the African Union in promoting tourism to Africa, continues its partnership with AKWAABA, the leading annual international travel fair in West Africa, to market and promote tourism to West Africa.

AKWAABA, also known as the African Travel Market, will be held once again at the New Expo Centre at the Eko Hotel and Suites in Lagos, Nigeria from October 26 to 28, 2014. Over the last ten years, AKWAABA has become the most important travel marketing platform in the region drawing attendance from over twenty countries, including international airlines and leading African hotel chains. AKWAABA has been designated by the Nigerian Tourism Development Corporation (NTDC) as the official travel exhibition of Nigeria.
