Ridge Times / 9 October 2017 / San-Marié Cronjé
The Mpumalanga Tourism and Parks Agency (MTPA), Gert Sibande District Municipality and Govan Mbeki Municipality hosted the Tourism SMME Fair, Exhibition and Workshop in Bethal on 28 September.
It formed part of a series of awareness campaigns and events that have been scheduled to celebrate Tourism Month in the province.
Mr Thulani Nzima (chairman of Mpumalanga Tourism and Parks Agency) addresses people at the Tourism SMME Fair on 28 September.
The concept of the tourism fairs began a few years ago with the aim of contributing towards the development of the SMMEs in the tourism sector.
The tourism fairs are usually hosted during Tourism Month when people are encouraged to support local businesses by travelling and visiting the less visited areas, hence the decision to host this event in Bethal.
