It’s time to re-build, re-imagine and re-cover tourism in South Africa. With the travel and tourism sector now re-opened, industry players need to focus on the importance of effective tourism marketing to gain a competitive edge in promoting their tourism destinations, products and experiences.
The Tourism Marketing Conference gives industry players the opportunity to learn more and focus on the latest trends, opportunities and key areas of tourism marketing, innovation, positioning and branding. This year there will be a strong focus on local tourism marketing within the conference theme “Re-build, Re-imagine, Re-cover”. The conference will facilitate a debate and learning opportunity that will help destinations and tourism product providers improve their marketing efforts to ultimately attract more business and be more competitive in the local and global tourism marketplace.
