Welcome to Locations Africa!

We started out with a bang this year. 

January was a good start, we knuckled down and began putting our plans into action.

First stop, in March was the MEETINGS AFRICA with South African Tourism. Meetings Africa showcases Africa’s diverse offering of services and products in tourism where African associations and African meetings industry professionals can partner to help transform our continent. Our partnership with South African Tourism granted us the opportunity to host guests and granted us an opportunity to hold the inaugural meeting of Film Commissions and similar bodies across Africa toward setting up the African Film Commissions Network, a project of Locations Africa. 

At MEEETINGS AFRICA, we gave a talk on Film Induced Tourism to tourism tour operators across Africa, assisting to create capacity and awareness in film location promotion. 

April saw us embark on our Locations Scouting and Management Skills Tour in partnership with the National Dept. Sports, Arts & Culture of South Africa through their Mzansi Golden Economy programme. We spent time touring in Cape Town, Durban, East London and Johannesburg.

May sees us at the Cannes International Film Festival participating on Pavilion Afriques hosting a discussion to launch the African Film Commissions Network to the world.

Before I move on let you sit back and navigate our site, I want to thank www.terkentertaimentgroup.com for partnering with us on this trip to the Cannes, thank you for making it happen.
