Is there anything more delicious than heaps of creamy avocado and crispy bacon on sourdough? It was the perfect start to another busy day at @wtm_africa as we shared she story of @open_africa with media friends. #WeOpenAfrica#wtma17
Currently going on at the Bokone Bophirima Provincial Tourism Trade and Investment Lekgotlha 2017 is a Q&A session. Product owners and industry players are asking questions and seeking clarity from the panel of experts who, moments ago, made presentations about their contributions to provincial tourism.
The first Responsible Tourism panel on market access for SMEs and emerging entrepreneurs drew an audience of 90 to hear Enver Mally – originally an SME and now part of African Eagle Day Tours as well as being Chair of the Board of Cape Town Tourism, and Kgomotso Pooe – the emerging entrepreneur behind Soweto Outdoor Adventures #WTMA17
#WTMA17 opened with over 8 900 self-scheduled and pre-scheduled appointments on record between buyers and exhibitors, and 140 first-time Hosted Buyers from key and emerging source markets. For the first time, hosted buyers from Zambia, Ethiopia and Namibia were also present.
