Tue, Jun. 18, 2019
CAIRO – 18 June 2019: As the teams of 24 African countries began to flock to Cairo to participate in the 2019 African Cup of Nations that will kick off on June 22, fans used their visit to Egypt to enjoy its tourist destinations and the beautiful beaches.

Egyptian tourism companies provided distinctive programs for the African fans that combine different types of tourism, including classical tourism in Cairo and beach tourism in Red Sea resorts or Alexandria.

Chairman of Tourism Activities Committee of the Organizing Committee of the African Nations Championship Kamel Abo Ali said that the committee launched an awareness campaign on the Social Media for the 2019 African Cup of Nations that aims to spread positive attitude among Egyptians.

The campaign begins with welcoming tourists from the moment they arrive at Egyptian airports by positive behaviors such as cleanliness and commitment to draw a positive mental image.

Abo Ali pointed out that the tourism committee is not only interested in tourist places, but seeks to change the culture of guests' reception, where every Egyptian becomes a tour guide, stressing that the championship is a golden opportunity to attract all kinds of tourism.

For his side, Head of the Federation of Tourist Chambers Elhamyel-Zayat attaches great significance to indirect publicity to Egypt during the tournament, pointing out that the championship is an important sports event that the world will follow and will give an opportunity to highlight Egyptian touristic treasures.

Zayat added that African tourists will be mainly interested in shopping, because Egypt has a large shopping potential that is not available in many African countries.
