2. Nordics roadshow 2019

The objective of this roadshow is to contribute to the growing of arrivals from the Nordic countries to South Africa by 8 – 10% in 2020. This will be done through convincing the travel trade that currently sell South Africa that there is still ample opportunity beyond the high price and value packages that have been historically sold, while educating them about differentiated product and packaging opportunities. This will be done in partnership with the South African trade and suppliers qualified to accompany South African Tourism on their 3rd annual roadshow, by showcasing new itineraries that showcase South Africa beyond generic itineraries sold at a high cost to the end customer. 

Please use the links contained in the document linked below to submit your applications by 29 July 2019, applications in any other format won’t be accepted. Please also note that your attendance won’t be considered if an application has not been submitted by the closing date.
