Intercape Charters and Intercity team recently participated at the annual INDABA 2015. It is one of the largest tourism marketing events
on the African calendar and one of the top three ‘must visit’ events of its kind on the global calendar. It showcases the widest variety of Southern Africa’s best tourism products, and attracts international buyers and media from across the world. INDABA is owned by South African Tourism and took place from 9-11 May 2015 in Durban at the Inkosi Albert Luthuli Convention Centre and the Durban Exhibition Centre. It surely promised to be an exciting event.
This event expected that 10 000 international and local delegates to descend on Durban to attend the event, and as always, INDABA promises to deliver.
The event provides the tourism trade the perfect opportunity to showcase its products and attractions, and also provides a fantastic platform for networking.
As Intercape showcased our services, our primary objective was to promote our Charter and Intercity business, maintain, strengthen and nurture our relationships with our current clients and also seek new business and collaborations. Our tour operators and general visitors complimented not only our trendy, fresh look and feel of our exhibition stand, but also the cleanliness of our busses, our high safety standards, neatness and professionalism of our drivers.
Well done to Intercape for receiving the Silver Award (We came 2nd in the Outdoor category).
I want to thank everyone who took part in the success of this year’s INDABA. This includes the charters and intercity team – Antonneke Turner, Charne Chalmers, Leana Strauss as well as local KZN staff – Eben Bothma & Terence Naidoo.
