2019 Namibia Tourism Expo is launched

15 November 2018 | Events

The 2019 Namibia Tourism Expo will take place from 5 to 8 June 2019 in Windhoek at the Windhoek showgrounds.

The dates were announced at the official launch in Windhoek yesterday. The Expo, which continues to be the biggest tourism event in Namibia, brings together tourism stakeholders from Namibia and neighbouring countries.

The Expo, which is turning 21 years next year, will also be celebrating its last sub-theme of the five years of ecotourism and will focus on recycling.

“Namibia needs to emphasise on the approach of improving practices and standards at waste disposal sites, as well as improving overall waste management so that Namibia maintains being a sought-after tourism destination in Africa,” said Albe Botha, CEO of Namibia Media Holdings.





For 21 years, the Namibia Tourism Expo has received full support from the Namibian government through the environment ministry, the Namibia Tourism Board and the City of Windhoek.

FirstRand Namibia Group chief marketing officer Tracy Eagles reiterated FNB and WesBank's continued support to the Namibia Tourism Expo.

“The NTE is an opportunity for all of us to celebrate Namibia, its majestic natural skylines, its infinite wildlife detail, and the collaborative diversity of our people. How we rally together in the small things, provides impetus for improved economic results in the industry and in its supporting sectors, for reviving countrywide goodwill, and for encouraging local and international investment. We are looking forward to meeting new visitors and old friends, with both WesBank and FNB ready to make the 2019 NTE and Motor Show the best ever.”

Maureen Posthuma, head of marketing of the Namibia Tourism Board said: “The Namibia Tourism Expo is an exciting multi-channel platform for the Namibian tourism industry to showcase their product offering to the Namibian travellers. The Namibia Tourism Board therefore welcomes the initiative by the NMH management to dedicate an entire hall towards the promotion of domestic tourism. Domestic tourism in Namibia has a lot of growth potential and can become a major revenue earner if more Namibians travel around their own country. Tourism indeed begins at home.”

“Old Mutual's commitment as co-sponsor of the Namibia Tourism Expo the past four years is driven by our passion to advance an inclusive positive future as a responsible business not only to the environment but in everything we do,” said Kosmas Egumbo, CEO of Old Mutual Namibia.

The Namibia Tourism Expo has seen a sustained growth in the number of exhibitors and visitors since its inception. As organisers, its success is measured by the quality of the exhibitors and consequently the number of visitors that enters the showground gates each year. We are excited to have been part of the Namibia Tourism Expo for the past 21 years and we are fortunate to have been part of the growth of tourism in Namibia through the Expo, said Maggy Mbako, public relations executive at Namibia Media Holdings.

The Namibia Tourism Expo is supported by Namibia Media Holdings, First National Bank as well as Old Mutual.
