2012 is proving to be an exciting year for tourism product holders of the Eastern Cape region. 27 March sees the launch of the first ever Eastern Cape Tourism Indaba, organised by The Kouga Companion and Fountains Mall Shopping Mall in Jeffreys Bay.
The six day event will give tourism product holders the opportunity to network and showcase their product, services or establishment along with tour operators, tour guides, local and international travel agencies as well as tourism agencies world wide.
The event will offer all participants the opportunity to attend short tourism related seminars, as well as talks regarding the path ahead and importance for tourism within the private sector. ” Tourism product holders of the Eastern Cape simply can’t keep up with the huge financial outlays of attending larger national Indabas” says event organizer Marj Heyman, who was the face behind Kouga tourism for many years.
Heyman and her associate Hank Liebenberg are the driving force behind the Kouga Companion DVD marketing drive. This extensive private marketing campaign has to date seen a staggering 12000 tourism DVD’s being distributed free of charge worldwide and is as Liebenberg describes
“A perfect example of what a small group of dedicated people can achieve despite lack of funding and other minor obstacles” the Eastern Cape Tourism Indaba will serve as a launch pad for the all new “KOUGA MY KOUGA” DVD documentary which was produced by local filmmakers Ultimate Cut Film Studio. The documentary contains never seen before footage of the Kouga region along with up close high definition footage of the indigenous fauna and flora, described by many as a “jaw dropping”.
This documentary will be made available to the public, free of charge for the duration of the event.
The Eastern Cape Tourism Indaba is not only aimed at product holders, but instead all members of the public are invited to discover the diverse range of activities the Eastern Cape has to offer, as well as the breath taking natural wonders that are on our doorstep.
