About this event

African American Tourism Conference 2022

The African- American Tourism Conference serves as a think tank where stakeholders & industry leaders gather with key government representatives to continue aligning efforts to support the African- American Tourism sector’s recovery and move beyond to a safer, more resilient, inclusive, and sustainable future.

This year our theme will align with that of the World Travel & Tourism Council’s Global Summit. The theme for this Global Summit is REDISCOVERING TRAVEL - we, too, aim to bring together people from around the state who embrace the same empathy, values and ambitions in solving our many social, environmental and economic challenges.

Sessions:

  • Cultural Heritage Tourism Party - Kickoff Reception
  • Black Tourism: Doing the Business of Tourism- This session will highlight the SC AATC (African American Tourism Council) strategy for expanding the tourism industry.
  • A-tax Grants: Funding For Your Tourism & Cultural Arts Programming - This session will feature local governments around the state as they discuss the qualifying criteria and other aspects of the program. This session will also feature staff from SCPRT as they discuss their grants and tourism promotion programs.
  • Business Development & Loan Programs: Start or Expand Your Business- This session will feature local governments around the state as they discuss the qualifying criteria and other aspects of the program.
  • Brunch & Business: The Influencer Edition- This event will recognize social media influencers in food, fashion, and the finer things in life! Join us in celebrating the influencer community, honoring those who positively impact our lives through their personalities, knowledge, and expertise. Learn about opportunities to tap into the $20 Million Dollar Tourism Industry. Meet the who’s who in the tourism industry and network about ideas, resources, and partnerships. Additional details will be announced soon including the awards show date, hosts, performers, presenters, and more.
