The local and regional tourism community are all looking forward to the 20th edition of the ever-popular Namibia Tourism Expo which will be held from 30 May to 3 June at the Windhoek show grounds. This year, there is a special treat for tourism stakeholders and conservationists alike. On 29 May, one day before the expo kicks off, a Tourism Networking Conference will be held at the Mopane Hall at the Windhoek Show Grounds.

Five seminars will be presented, all focusing on the theme of the 2018 expo, Conservation - Small things matter’. The environment and tourism minister Pohamba Shifeta will officially open the 1st Tourism Networking Conference.

Her life’s objective, she says, is to contribute to sustainable development and natural resource management in Namibia. She has been dedicated to community-based resource management for more than 20 years and has vast experience in project management. Her knowledge of community-based tourism is unsurpassed.
