Tourism-industry stakeholders - this year’s Indaba is the place to be

2016-05-04 06:00

THE annual Tourism industry event, Indaba, takes place from 7 to 9 May at the Inkosi Albert Luthuli Convention Centre (Durban ICC) and Durban Exhibition Centre (DEC).

This is the place to be if you are a stakeholder in the tourism industry.
According to event organiser, the response from participants has been encouraging and the numbers are proof that participants are finding matches and scheduling their meetings, showing a great mix of exhibitors and buyers for this year’s event.

Approximately 9 000 meetings have already been scheduled and
3 000 meetings were confirmed, a month ago.
This is up by 1 000 compared to just over 2 000 last year, which equates to 5.3 meetings scheduled per participant - also up from last year’s 3.2.

These numbers not only demonstrate the power of the event to match participants with buyers, but also the event’s ability to schedule meetings.
Participants are more active in the system and one reason for this is that returning exhibitors are more comfortable using the system.

Another reason for this success is that participants can select who they want to meet, and this provides a higher quality meeting as participants meet with the people they want to meet and do not rely on auto-matching. This sets Indaba apart from other shows, giving it a competitive edge.
