CREATING NETWORKS

Creating value-adding networks is an important component of our work. As our business events activities expanded beyond the conference walls, we saw an exciting opportunity to link up with other professional tourism entrepreneurs around the country to establish a platform for collaboration so we can seamlessly offer high-quality sightseeing experiences to our international conference guests. Thus was Seeza Destination Network born, with a simple vision to pioneer a “one-stop” tourism brand driven by SMEs and connecting our guests to world-class tourism experiences across South Africa and southern Africa and spreading tourism benefits to host communities. Through the Network, guests are exposed to unique and authentic tourism experiences beyond the well-trodden tourism nodes. For more information visit www.seeza.today.
