Durban Tourism Indaba 2012
Is was my first Tourism Indaba that I attended not as a visitor but as a participant. The Durban Tourism Indaba is one of the largest tourism marketing events on the African calendar and one of the top three ‘must visit’ events of its kind on the global calendar
It showcases the widest variety of Southern Africa’s best tourism products, and attracts international visitors and media from across the world. INDABA is owned by South African Tourism and organised by Witch & Wizard Creative (Pty) Ltd. For two years in a row, INDABA has won the award for Africa’s best travel and tourism show. This award was presented by the Association of World Travel Awards. Indaba is a four day trade event that attracts well over 13000 delegates from the travel tourism and related industries.

I thought the Indaba was actually pretty well laid out. We had a number of visitors to the “1000 Hills” stand which I was helping man, with quite a number of positive comments regarding the future of tourism in South Africa.
The only negative to the Indaba was the fact that we only seemed to get information on our stand in the week prior to the Indaba, so not really much time available to get our acts together. Still, a good opportunity, so here’s hoping something will come out of it.
