Greet & Meet Receptions Hosted by SoCalATA


SoCalATA hosts Greet & Meet Receptions whenever an Africa travel industry delegation visits Southern California—in most instances these delegations include top diplomats, including Ministers of Tourism, their staffs and Tourism Boards.


These are informal events designed for top-level networking, and held in most cases as wine receptions.


The receptions are typically by invitation only and in most cases open to SoCalATA members and invited local officials and diplomatic corps members.


ATA members benefit from these receptions; meeting the leaders of the destinations they sell and of course giving them a unique opportunity to discuss business issues with the destination’s top echelons.


This is an important benefit of SoCalATA membership.  For front-line travel agents and tour operators these receptions provide an important business development networking tool to establish contacts and insight knowledge of the Africa Destinations.
