25 Oct AAXO, EXSA and SA Tourism Networking
The Association of African Exhibition Organisers, Exhibition and Events Association of Southern Africa and South African Tourism recently held two successful networking events held in Johannesurg at Expo Centre on Thursday, 18th October 2018 and then again on Wednesday, 24th October 2018 in Cape Town at Century City Hotel & Conference Centre.
These networking events attracted a variety of individuals from the exhibition and events industry in each region. The Event Greening Forum joined us for the Cape Town event and the attendees were treated to a Master Class intro by Deon Robbertze of The Change Agent on going green.
SA Tourism, through the National Convention Bureau (NCB), has identified exhibitions as a key driver for both economic and tourism development. This strategic focus will become an enabler in this sector to assist with both funding and international market access to exhibition organisers.
To this end, SA Tourism invites all members to an initial engagement on the plans to support the growth of this important sector. This growth will aid in securing new exhibitions to SA which will positively impact, not only the tourism arrivals, but more importantly the local GDP.
We look forward to many more of these networking events coming up in the near future and would like to thank everyone that made the effort to register and come along.
