The 18th Annual Namibia Tourism Expo is organized by Namibia Media Holdings and is supported by all Namibian tourism organizations, including the Namibian Tourism Board (NTB). The Expo which will be held from 31 May -03 June 2017 is proudly sponsored by Old Mutual and Nedbank Namibia.
Our aim is to provide a platform for Namibia's tourism industry to promote and market their products and services to all involved in the industry, as well as the public. Since its inception in 1999, the Namibia Tourism Expo has grown consistently and has earned a superb reputation for offering the only centralized marketing platform for Namibia's tourism industry. Apart from presenting a highly effective showcase for exhibitors active in tourism, the organizers have revitalized the exhibition year after year by expanding the showcase.
The Expo hosts exhibits by local, regional and international exhibitors and also features interactive chefs' demonstrations, food, beer and wine tasting, as well as a host of fun activities to attract travel enthusiasts, foodies, friends of tourism and the public. Tour operators, car rental companies and self-drive travellers can view a fully-fledged motor vehicle show, complete with motoring accessories, hosted under the banner of the Namibia Tourism Expo & Motor Show. A separate information pack for the Motor Show is available on request.
The Expo is open to ALL IN TOURISM & ALL TOURISM ORGANIZATIONS, namely travel agencies, airlines, hotels, lodges, direct suppliers to the tourism industry, government tourism offices and tourism-related organizations and enterprises, as well as representatives of food and beverage companies supplying the tourism industry. A company profile indicating the nature of the business must accompany the booking form. Where a business is not obviously tourism related, the organizers may request an additional motivation for participation. This will be duly considered and the final decision on participation is at the discretion of the Namibia Tourism Expo organizers.
First-time exhibitors that are suppliers to the hospitality industry are not automatically guaranteed participation. Preference will be given to tourism direct exhibitors.
The Namibia Tourism Expo aims to:
- Provide a forum for the tourism industry and its suppliers to market new and exciting products and services,directly to the consumer and to the travel trade, both locally and internationally.
- Create public awareness of the importance of tourism and foster a sense of pride in our country amongst Namibians.
- Encourage stakeholders in the industry to network and communicate with each other for the benefit of the tourism trade. The Namibia Tourism Expo attracts visitors who are actively seeking information about the various industry suppliers, new products and recent developments in tourism.
The event presents an ideal opportunity to those who wish to network with the industry and make face-to-face contact to identify new business prospects.
FOOD, BEVERAGES & RESTAURANTS
Interactive food and beverage demonstrations are encouraged. A variety of well-known restaurants will operate for the duration of the Expo. Restaurants that form part of the tourism industry will be given preference to operate at the Namibia Tourism Expo.
