    Change of date for INDABA 2017

    Next year’s Tourism INDABA will be held from the 16th to 18th May.This follows the announcement of the exciting news that a large-scale global event that will positively impact the South African tourism industry will take place at the Inkosi Albert Luthuli International Convention Centre in Durban on the same week that South African Tourism had announced for INDABA 2017.

    This date change takes this event into consideration and the feedback received from key exhibitors and industry captains on how INDABA could be enhanced.

    The most notable element about the date change is that this iconic trade show will now be held from Tuesday to Thursday as opposed to the traditional Mother’s Day weekend. This was informed partly by the input received from consultations with industry including the fact that the international norm is that trade shows take place during the week.

    “INDABA is about collaborations and partnerships which are key ingredients to ensuring its success. We have always made a firm commitment that we value input from the greater tourism industry and that we will do our best to make changes to the show to benefit everyone,” says Acting Chief Executive Officer at South African Tourism, Sthembiso Dlamini.

    Whilst plans are still underway, a few more changes to the show will be announced in due course. These will include communication on an enhanced hosted buyer programmes, and an event calendar tailored to allow time for exhibitors and buyers to do business and optimise networking opportunities.

    “We have received many comments and suggestions from the trade on almost every aspect of INDABA and the changes to be implemented from next year onwards are a direct response to those.  The aim is not only to make sure that INDABA remains as optimally beneficial as possible for the industry, but also that it continues to be the best business networking meeting for the exhibitors and for buyers who want to do business with our destination.  We want to have as much industry participation as possible so that we can showcase the diversity and variety of both South Africa and the rest our continent’s offering,” adds Dlamini

    South African Tourism and its partners are already hard at work planning Tourism INDABA 2017. For more information on the show visit www.indaba-southafrica.co.za.
