Stellenbosch Business Tourism leaps ahead

Following the first and highly successful Stellenbosch Business Tourism Indaba held in June 2017, Stellenbosch 360 recently presented another first and full-house Business Tourism Speed Marketing event – attended by some 50 industry representatives – at nearby Skilpadvlei Wine Farm.    Stellenbosch 360’s partners for the event was Wesgro, the Cape Town Convention Buro, SAACI (South African Association for the Conference Industry) and the Stellenbosch University.

Afterwards Annemarie Ferns, CEO of Stellenbosch 360, remarked: “At this momentous event our members as the so-called ‘sellers’ had the opportunity to present their quality conference and other venues, accommodation establishments and some other tourist offerings too the ‘buyers’ of the tourism industry in the Western Cape – including conference organisers and meeting & incentive planners as well as tourism operators.”

Enormous potential

She concluded: “I wish to reaffirm that I believe that Stellenbosch and surrounds have enormous potential as a Living Conference, Event and Incentive Destination par excellence. There are so many existing and further growth opportunities to benefit our people at all levels. Add to that all our town’s wonderful people assets and our well-established and globally renowned tourism attributes, this Business Tourism initiative can have a comprehensive impact on the future of our town and region’s economic growth!”
