Tourism expo gears towards renewable energy

30 September 2019 | Events

The 2020 Namibia Tourism Expo will take place from 10 – 13 June 2020 in Windhoek at the Windhoek show grounds.

The Expo, which continues to be the biggest tourism event in Namibia, brings together tourism stakeholders from Namibia and neighbouring countries. The Namibia Tourism Expo which is turning 22 years next year, will also be celebrating its last sub-theme of the five years of ecotourism and will focus on 'energy'. “As we celebrate 30 years of democracy in Namibia, the Expo will transform the energy of the Land of the Brave so we can all benefit from tourism on a sustainable basis,” says Albe Botha, CEO of Namibia Media Holdings.

For 21 years, the Namibia Tourism Expo has received full support from the government through the environment and tourism ministry, the Namibia Tourism Board and the City of Windhoek, and as the organisers. According to Botha, “We continue to embrace that sound relationship.”

“Our support towards renewable energy is embedded in our shared values approach to our business. The FirstRand Namibia Group - through its RMB division, FNB Namibia and WesBank – has taken a proactive stance and provide loans to corporates, businesses and individuals alike. To further cement our role as a responsible corporate citizen, our support at the 2020 Namibia Tourism Expo will include special partnerships towards renewable energy, helping to transform affordable energy supply,” says Madri van Wyk, FirstRand's brand and marketing manager.

According to Ndangi Katoma, Old Mutual's executive for marketing, communication and customer strategy, the 2020 theme excites them.





“Next year's theme entitled 'Transforming Energy' is exciting and resonates well with Old Mutual in transforming our energy as we will celebrate 100 years of operating in Namibia, doing great things every day in enabling positive futures of our customers, shareholders and community in which we operate.”

“The Namibia Tourism Expo has seen a sustained growth in the number of exhibitors and visitors since its inception. As organisers, the success of the expo is measured by the quality of the exhibitors and consequently the number of visitors that enter the gates each year. We believe that the Namibia Tourism Expo has been and still is the platform that is created for tourism, to exchange ideas and to learn new trends in the industry,” says Maggy Mbako, public relations for NMH.

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