George Tourism a hit at the JHB Getaway Show
George and Uniondale Tourism represented by Claudine Carelse, current acting Tourism Manager and Ricardo Claassen attend the JHB Getaway Show two weeks ago and were very well received.
The Getaway show was well attended with 400+ exhibitors, including travel destinations, airlines, accommodation, outdoor gear, 4 x 4 equipment and adventure operators taking part.
The George Tourism stand, newly designed to enhance and reflect the diversity of the area, was a huge hit with the public In particular the stunning photograph of Victoria Bay which was keenly used as a backdrop to many consumers “selfies” showing that this little Bay plays an integral part in South African culture.
George and Uniondale Tourism found that the new tourism maps proved very popular. A number of sponsored prizes were enthusiastically received by selected visitors to the stand and the following sponsors must be thanked for the wonderful prizes supplied:Eden Adventures, Monkeyland, Perdepoort and Sedgway Tours.
Uniondale suppliers provided products for display on the stand - the black Feige Mediterranean Figs and jam from Ella Jubelius, harvested in the Kammanasie Valley and Aloe skin products sponsored by Garry Struver.
George Municipality was able to market George and Uniondale to a niche audience and strengthen relationships with various role players in the industry.
It was an ideal platform to market George as a central destination point from which to explore the Southern Cape in its entirety.
George with its variety of accommodation, attractions and activities offers consumers a complete South African holiday package and exhibitions such as the JHB Getaway Show enable George Tourism to partner with private and corporate entities from George and surrounds to actively promote the area.
