FNB supports Namibia Tourism Expo 2020

16 October 2020 | Tourism

First National Bank is contributing N$250 000 towards an initiative by Namibia Media Holdings (NMH) through which accommodation vouchers to the combined value of N$1 000 000 (N$1 000 per voucher) can be won by members of the public seeking a break away from home.

Winners of the voucher can book at any accommodation facility exhibiting at the Namibia Tourism Expo (NTE) 2020.

The tourism sector, heavily dependent on foreign visitors, has been hard hit by the Covid-19 pandemic.

“FNB has directly and indirectly invested in the tourism sector even during this difficult time. We are maintaining partnerships which go back a long way in some instances”, said Tracy Eagles, chief marketing officer of FirstRand Namibia.

The NTE 2020 will be held at the SKW grounds in Windhoek from 4 to 7 November 2020. New initiatives such as the Tourist of the Year competition are designed to reinvent the manner in which we promote our tourism industry locally as well as internationally. The NTE and thus all potential visitors will be connected.
