MyArts international will be hosting a Creative and hospitality forum in Mahikeng for the North-West Businesses. With the creative sector comprises of a complex network of stakeholders, entrepreneurs and groups that have an interest in the development, management and marketing of MICE sector, The support, commitment and cooperation of these stakeholders for long term growth of tourism sector in Bokone-Bophirima is essential.
This platform will enable the sector and all participants to consider working together, sharing success stories, being educated on current opportunities and addressing challenges of the create and MICE Sector.
We believe that it is important that key Stakeholders create meaningful and sustainable opportunities for entrepreneurs throughout the tourism, Arts and Culture value chain in order to contribute towards the National Development Plan vision 2030. Tourism in Bokone-Bophirima can be improved by reinforcing the Arts, Culture and Heritage Sector and look at it as an economic growth sector with large-scale employment. Together, We need to be part of the large-scale interventions aimed at optimising growth and the employment potential of the Tourism and creative Sector. The biggest question is that there are many government programs that have been designed to strengthen and grow the creative and tourism sector but how much access and knowledge entrepreneurs within the sector have about them?
The Bokone-Bophirima Creative and Hospitality Forum must be used as a platform for interaction that will encourage young people to advance tourism business projects that can promote the province and bring about economic growth and employment creation.
The event is expected to be blessed by various participants from the creative and tourism ranging from Event Companies, Restaurant owners, chefs, Film Makers, Photographers, Artists ( Visual & Performing) , Deco Companies, Hotel/Guest-house owners , Tour Operators, Crafters, Fashion Designers , Models ,Media , PR and Marketing Companies, Travel Agencies , Venues and hospitality Companies
