SSouth African Tourism through its business unit, Tourism Grading Council of South Africa continues to create a platform for new and existing tourism products to showcase themselves to local and international tour operators, with the aim of building a quality visitor experience through Virtual Speed Marketing sessions.

Speed Marketing is a market access platform created to provide tourism businesses an opportunity to interact and forge business relationships between products and buyers (Tour operators and DMCs who are already packaging and selling the destination or have interest in doing so).

In the sessions, representatives of the South African products, establishments or experiences are given the opportunity to market their products and experiences using a presentation. Speed marketing focuses on bringing the supply and demand of business to business and consumers and products together.

The tourism industry has been adversely impacted by the Coronavirus pandemic with over 50 000 tourism businesses having closed down either temporarily or permanently. Furthermore, income from accommodation decreased by 65.5% in the period ended in November 2020 compared to the same period in 2019. TGCSA is re-imagining the future of Speed Marketing by hosting the sessions virtually for the second time, following the successful sessions which were hosted in October 2020.

The first sessions for 2021 are taking place via Zoom and the details of the upcoming events are as follows;
