The Second Annual Mpumalanga Tourism Expo


Mbombela, Mpumalanga 22 August 2022 - Jakada Holdings (PTY) Ltd in partnership with the Mpumalanga Tourism & Parks Agency is proud to announce the hosting of the second annual Mpumalanga Tourism Expo.

The expo will take place at the Riverside Mall on 24 & 25 September 2022. The aim of the expo is to promote tourism in the province.

“The second annual Mpumalanga Tourism Expo is geared to provide a platform to 50 tourism products to showcase their tourism products and services to the domestic and international markets”, said Mr Xolani Mthethwa, the Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Jakada Holdings.

“This year, we aim to double the number of exhibitors and we have invited the provincial Department of Sport, Arts & Culture to bring 20 crafters from the province to exhibit in the expo. In 2021, we saw a huge interest from crafters and other tourism products who wanted to be part of the expo. This is one of the reasons we are doubling the exhibition space. Ten (10) hosted buyers from Gauteng, Western Cape, KwaZulu-Natal, Limpopo, Mozambique and the Kingdom of Eswatini will be invited to attend the expo to interact with the exhibitors to learn about the tourism products on offer in the province,” concluded Mthethwa.

“The MTPA has signed a three-year partnership agreement with Jakada Holdings to support the event. We see the Mpumalanga Tourism Expo as a perfect vehicle to promote and grow tourism in the province. Furthermore, the expo will assist us to implement the Triland agreement that was signed recently through the invitation of the tour operators from Mozambique and the Kingdom of Eswatini to come and exhibit in this event”, said Mr Mduduzi Vilakazi, Acting Chief Executive Officer of the MTPA.

Fabulous holiday prizes are up for grabs by the shoppers who visit a minimum of three stalls and enter a competition at the tourism expo. We would like to thank our sponsors and partners for making this event possible.
