Menlyn Park Shopping Centre Celebrates Tshwane Tourism Treasures
9 October 2019
Menlyn Park Shopping Centre launched its first-ever in-centre tourism expo, creating new ways to discover “Tshwane in one day” while focusing on boosting local entrepreneurs within the tourism industry.
In partnership with the City of Tshwane and Tshwane Tourism Association (TTA), the Centre opened its doors for various local players within the tourism sector, from Small to medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) to national brands by hosting the first-ever in-centre Tourism Expo that ran from the 26th of September to the 29th of September. The concept of the expo was an initiative by Menlyn Park Shopping Centre in partnership with TTA to drive support for local business and to explore the hidden gems in Tshwane to share with the citizens of Tshwane and surrounding regions.
At the Tourism Expo multiple local SME’s and other businesses were able to display their unique local attractions to shoppers, giving them a glimpse of what the city has to offer. Visitors were able to explore and learn about numerous destinations, attractions as well as stand a chance to win great prizes and specials offered during the expo. As an example, a free skydiving opportunity will be available for shoppers who love the idea of total freedom.
“There is a misconception that entertainment, downtime, and travel destinations are always expensive and only available outside of Tshwane. We acknowledge that our shoppers are under increasing financial and economic pressures and that destination excursions can be challenging. So we wanted to create greater awareness for the local tourism offerings that deserve local support and show our shoppers that they can find great experiences located right here in their city at affordable rates.” ~ Olive Ndebele, General Manager at Menlyn Park Shopping Centre.
So in light of Tourism Month and the upcoming holiday season, the Centre created the Tourism Expo to support the local businesses and to entice shoppers to look local and love local.
The Menlyn Tourism expo might be over, but the adventure continues. Menlyn Park Shopping Centre wants you to experience Tshwane’s hidden gems.
We love local and its definitely time to take a break! Win a Tamboti Bush Lodge stay worth R3000!!!
