Tourism Update – February 2018

We’ve had an interesting start to the year, but it’s continued all the way into February 2018. We’ve noted a few positive area’s in the tourism industry that deserves the spotlight.

South Africa Tourism India Roadshow

The annual roadshow is specifically geared towards SATSA members and graded establishments for participation, ensuring credibility and quality. Our Albatros team is on the ground and in partnership with Sapphire Ventures based in India. We’re promoting a new range of products including the strengthening of new and current relations with top Indian tour operators.

Our new SA President

The tourism industry has reacted positively to South Africa’s recent political changes which saw Jacob Zuma resign as Head of State, and Cyril Ramaphosa sworn in as the country’s new President. Ramaphosa is a breath of fresh air, especially for the tourism industry, commented James Vos, MP – Shadow Minister of Tourism, who says he aims to work closely with the new President to ensure tourism is high on government’s agenda.

Understanding the Cape Town water issue?

On the 2nd of February more than 600 members attended our JAMMS session to look at the impact of the water crisis on the tourism industry and how the sector’s water footprint can be minimized. It was a robust discussion with local and provincial government, as well as the national and local tourism bodies, answering your questions and providing context to the crisis. South African Tourism CEO Sisa Ntshona speaking at the Jamms Session, February 02, 2018.
