Eastern Cape travel trade workshop

Destination Garden Route and AfriCanyon are joining efforts to represent the Garden Route at this next workshop.

When, how, what??

Destination Garden Route has managed to secure a table at the TME Eastern Cape Workshop on the 3rd September 2019 where ~100 agents and operators from the Eastern Cape will have the chance to learn about the exhibitors’ product(s).  At this point we are the only table representing the Garden Route.

Kaarin from AfriCanyon will be attending the workshop on the 3rd Sept representing businesses in and along the Garden Route.

What you get

The objectives:

  • To represent and promote the area as a whole  
  • Meet the attendees and provide basic information on the many activities and accommodation establishments
  • Promote the Garden Route
  • Raise awareness
  • Give them a reason to head down to this part of the world & create packages

With 8 minutes allotments there is not a lot of time and Kaarin doesn’t know your business intimately so the goal is to get your business on their radar.

Your business card / brochure will be included in an information pack and your activity/establishment voucher will form part of the Prize draw.

You will receive the database of attendees to make direct contact and follow up with after the workshop.

What we need

To be included in this initiative we are asking for a R250 contribution (yes mad).

Please provide the following which will be collated in an info pack by Thursday 29th August

  1. Voucher for your Activity or Accommodation establishment (to form part of the prizes – with your terms and conditions)
  2. Business Card (100) and or,
  3. Brochure (100),
  4. Any other information/ ie. rate card etc (100) – (although this can be emailed at follow-up).


Thursday 29th August
