The agenda for Stream Africa 2018 is in your hands. There are six session times a day, hosted in nine different meeting spaces. Each session runs for 1 hour (give or take) and all sessions are led by you, the Stream participants. Here's how it works:

  1. Before Stream - Share your idea - Create a New Discussion by clicking on the blue ‘add idea’ button on the left of this page
  2. Before Stream - Invite others to join you - you can see the participants list at the Participants page.
  3. At Stream - Book a slot - when you arrive on site, write your discussion on the Big Boards

The Stream team is on hand to help. Please get in touch if you'd like to talk an idea through before posting, or would like help finding some co-hosts.

South African Tourism

Making SA safe for our visitors

 Tourism is a key sector for South Africa – driving transformation, employment and economic growth.  For the seventh consecutive year, the global travel and tourism sector has outperformed the global economy. In 2017 it was the fastest growing broad economic sector globally, showing stronger growth than all sectors including manufacturing (4.2%), retail and wholesale (3.4%), agriculture, forestry and fisheries (2.6%) and financial services (2.5%).  Global research shows that for every 30 tourists, one new job is created (World Economic Forum (WEF): Travel and Tourism competitiveness report 2017).  Tourism is one of the country’s most vibrant and exciting spheres of the economy to operate in.  Tourism supports some 700 000 direct jobs in South Africa, with 1 in 23 employed individuals working in South Africa’s tourism sector.  Tourism in South Africa contributes 3% directly to GDP. When all the related industries that feed into the tourism ecosystem are factored in, the figures are much higher. > Key ISSUE > How do we make SA safer to encourage visitors to our country?
