Every tourism product in the Explorers Garden Route has to get on board and contribute their input into the next phase of the Tourism Strategic Plan for the area.
“We need every tourism-related business, including tourism members, non- members, Airbnb’s, activities and attractions to attend the sessions between
the 27th and 30th of June 2017,’ says Elana Lotriet, Manager of Economic Development and Tourism at Hessequa Local Municipality. We need a team approach to this
next year as we promote the area as an Explorer’s paradise on the Garden Route.
The Explorers Garden Route will now enter its second budget phase and will focus on a team approach to provide authentic service and visit and do sales calls on tour operators
and travel media. Lotriet believes that the first phase has created the platform for a meaningful promotion to both operators and the public. “We need to feed back the research
from tour operators and change the way we present our tourism offerings.”
The workshops will be held as follows:
|27 June 2017||10H00 – 13H00||Gouritsmond||Gemeenskapsaal – Voortrekker Str. Gouritsmond|
|14H00 – 17H00||Albertinia||Civic Centre – 35 Vries Str. Albertinia|
|28 June 2017||10H00 – 13H00||Stilbaai||Gemeenskapsaal (Sy saal) Hoofweg wes , Municipal Building Stilbaai|

Lotriet has appealed to everyone who gets revenue from tourists to make this one meeting a priority. “We need every town to become part of the team for our exciting initiatives
this year. We can each make a positive difference and ensure that all of our communities are impacted by the activities this year.” Please do not hesitate to contact us if you need
