DURBAN will host Africa’s biggest tourism show, Indaba, for another five years.

This was announced at the opening of the event, which has attracted over 13 000 delegates, including 1 700 exhibitors.

President Jacob Zuma said the tourism Indaba has ensured that standards for the global tourism industry are set, adding that it will also help break the 10 million mark for tourist arrivals in South Africa.

He said the influx has led to the upgrading of facilities and skills in the tourism industry.

“The Tourism Indaba has for the past 20 years showcased our country’s natural beauty, people and our modern nation.

“I have no doubt that the event will continue to play a role in promoting tourism long after 2010,” he said.

“I’m confident that each one of you will add your bit to ensure that fans get to us in their mega numbers and have a memorable experience.”
