Gauteng Tourism: What’s on offer at the Indaba?
According to Travel News, GTA plans to re-launch the Joburg Red Bus, as well as promote upcoming new route. They will also introduce the +27 campaign which focuses on vital Gauteng foreign source markets, in collaboration with South African Tourism.
They will also shine the light on SportingGP, via promotion of the World Rowing Masters Regatta 2023, which has been awarded to SA. The Regatta will take place in September 2023 at Roodeplaat Dam in Tshwane.
Another promotion in GTA’s plans is the RooftopGP experience. A Rooftop BBQ will take place in Umhlanga, as a way to create a #GPLifestyle experience highlighting Gauteng’s offerings and products through curated food, fashion, and lifestyle experiences.
Gauteng Tourism launched the #RooftopGP project in February this year, as part of new product development in Gauteng to encourage and highlight rooftop experiences as part of tours and excursions in Gauteng. This is also in direct response to the growing demand for new, personalised recreational venues.
