Jakada Holdings (PTY) Ltd in partnership with the Mpumalanga Tourism & Parks Agency hosted the first inaugural Mpumalanga Tourism Expo at the Riveside Mall, Mbombela on 11 & 12 September 2021. The Expo is aimed at re-igniting and reviving the provincial tourism industry.

The Mpumalanga Tourism Expo provided a platform to 22 provincial tourism products to showcase their tourism offerings to the local and domestic market. Furthermore, the event was aimed at encouraging the local communities to travel in their province. A total of ten (10) hosted buyers from Gauteng, Western Cape and KwaZulu-Natal were part of the expo to interact with the exhibitors to learn about the tourism products on offer in the province.

The hosting and timing of the tourism expo coincides with the celebration of Tourism Month in South Africa and the event fits perfectly with our tourism month objectives of encouraging the locals to travel in their own province. As we continue to battle with the COVID-19 pandemic and the negative impact it had on the tourism sector, we are hopeful that we will continue to work together to increase the tourist arrivals in the province.

We are grateful for the support received for the various partners that make this Tourism Expo a success. Let us continue to take a shot left and explore what Mpumalanga has to offer.
