2018 Namibia Tourism Expo promotes conservation

28 May 2018 | Events

The Namibia Tourism Expo (NTE), which celebrates its 20th birthday this year, will take place from 29 May to 2 June at the Windhoek Showgrounds.

The Expo, which continues to be the biggest tourism event in Namibia, brings together tourism stakeholders from Namibia and neighbouring countries.

Minister of environment and tourism Pohamba Shifeta will officially open the expo on Wednesday, 30 May at 16:00.

Namibia as destination has grown globally over the years and this has encouraged the local tourism industry to take advantage of the growing number of tourists to the Land of the Brave. In this tough economic climate, we need to become more creative in maintaining what we have as a tourist destination, hence the theme 'Small Things Matter' for this year´s expo.

The Namibia Tourism Expo this year includes the first National Tourism Conference, where experts in various fields will be sharing their experience in sustainable growth in the tourism industry.

The Tourism Conference will take place on Tuesday, 29 May from 08:00 in the Mopane Hall at the Windhoek Showgrounds.

“The Namibia Tourism Expo has seen sustained growth in the number of exhibitors and visitors since its inception.

About 20 000 people visited the expo last year and the NTE has also experienced an increase in the number of foreign exhibitors, especially from neighbouring countries. As organisers, the success of the expo is measured by the quality of the exhibitors and consequently the number of visitors that enters the gates each year,” says Maggy Mbako, public relations executive of Namibia Media Holdings.

The Expo will be open to the public from Thursday, 31 May until Friday, 1 June, from 12:00 to 20:00, and on Saturday, 2 June from 11:00 to 18:00.
