African Association of Visitor Experiences (AAVEA) Conference.


We are pleased to be taking part in the AAVEA( African Association of Visitor Experiences and Attractions) conference which will be happening on the 18th and 19th August 2021 virtually.

The African Association of Visitor Experiences and Attractions (AAVEA) is a membership-driven association, governed by a board of experienced industry professionals, which offers the only educational opportunities for visitor experience and attractions professionals in Africa.

While AAVEA began its journey in 2014 as an annual two-day conference for the attractions industry focused on education, training, benchmarking, and networking , it was officially launched as an association in November 2018.

AAVEA has hosted an annual two day conference, generally at attraction sites around South Africa, since 2014. The popular programme of each conference is focused on inspiring our participants with insightful presentations from keynote international attractions professionals, panel discussions with local attractions managers, breakaway groups for practical idea sharing and networking with colleagues.

Our founder, Chao Tayiana Maina, is privileged to be speaking on ”Sustainable pathways to enhancing audience experience through digital technologies” alongside other speakers.
