Tourism Expo celebrates quarter century

Going ‘Beyond Borders’
Next week marks the 25th Tourism Expo, which will take place at the Windhoek Country Club from Wednesday to Friday.
According to the organisers Namibia Media Holdings (NMH), tourism minister Pohamba Shifeta will officially open the event on Wednesday.
Since the theme is Beyond Borders, there is a special focus on the Kavango-Zambezi Transfrontier Conservation Area (KAZA TFCA).
KAZA was formally established in August 2011 and is run by the five partner countries - Namibia, Angola, Botswana, Zambia and Zimbabwe. Its focus is on conservation as a primary form of land use and tourism as an important by-product.
KAZA's goal is to “sustainably manage the ecosystem, its heritage and cultural resources based on best conservation and tourism models for the socioeconomic well-being of the communities and other stakeholders".
“Maintaining our commitment to establishing the Tourism Expo as a networking platform as well as a platform where new ideas can be shared, tourism networking sessions are scheduled to take place on Thursday, 25 April, and Friday, 26 April. Topics vary from new and creative tourism products, tourism opportunities that arise out of the oil and gas discoveries, and more. We have experienced presenters lined up as well as young and vibrant Namibians who will share their knowledge,” NMH public relations executive Maggy Mbako said.
