The first local ‘Tourism is Lekker’ Expo and networking event aimed at providing a wide range of tourism service suppliers a platform to introduce and exhibit special offers for the local and SADC market commenced on Monday.
The 3-day event is being held at the Droombos and Vinyard Country Lodge. Entrance fees are N$30 per adult and N$15 for children between 6-12 years.
Yvonne von Holtz, Co-founder of Local Tourism Is Lekker said they are trying to help local and SADC travellers to access affordable Namibian tourism offers.
“Covid-19 pandemic has had a huge impact on the tourism industry due to the resulting travel restrictions as well as slump in demand among travellers, which inevitably gave rise to the need for reassessments, restrategizing and supportive cooperation,” she added.
Therefore with this in mind, she said they reserved the tourism service suppliers with the intention of creating a central hub offering businesses an opportunity to network with customers and distribute rates.
“In addition to this we will host a general networking event on 2 December at 19:00 for members of the entire tourism sector who wish to exchange ideas and strategies amongst each other,” she added.
