Local tourism establishments in Langa and Bo-Kaap to get global exposure at WTM, Africa

 Thursday, April 19, 2018 


WTM, AfricaThis week, local tourism establishments in Langa and Bo-Kaap will host some of the world’s top tourism industry buyers who are attending the World Travel Market (WTM) Africa.

Buyers from important source markets from around the world will explore one of Cape Town’s most distinct neighbourhoods, the Bo-Kaap. They will also be able to experience life as a local in Langa, one of the city’s oldest townships. This can be done via scheduled tours which have been arranged by the City of Cape Town.

The city’s executive mayor, Patricia De Lille said, “The City has been a proud supporter of the event since 2015 which enables local entrepreneurs to meet and engage with top tourism industry buyers and trade visitors from around the world. This year, the City decided to do something different – offering buyers a first-hand experience of tourism products in the local areas.”

She added, “I am delighted that the travel industry royalty, potential buying customers with key decision-making power, will be afforded a first-hand experience of our local tourism gems. The exposure that these local tourism businesses will receive is invaluable. Through this opportunity, they have a chance to meet potential distributors and buyers, identify strategic partners and position themselves globally.”

WTM Africa is taking place at the Cape Town International Convention Centre from 18 to 20 April this year.
