South African Tourism is embarking on an ambitious pilot project in March 2018 where 90 tourism trade participants from the Nordic region will be hosted in South Africa on a mega-familiarisation trip that will expose them to a range of local travel products across all nine provinces – including small businesses. To this end, South African Tourism is finalising a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with 11 local destination marketing companies (DMCs) including SEEZA, a unique and dynamic new black-owned DMC made up of a network of small, medium and micro enterprises (SMMEs). South African Airways is also a key partner in this collaboration, and has been integral to selecting the agents that will attend. Leading from the front, this is a collaborative initiative with the greater tourism industry, including the Southern Africa Tourism Services Association (SATSA).
