OSLO & SANDEFJORD TRAVEL EXPOS 2016: SUCCESSFUL PROMOTION OF SOUTH AFRICA


The Oslo Mission flying the South African flag high at the largest travel fair in Norway.

Ambassador Zondo and the Oslo Mission participated in the annual Oslo Travel Expo 15-17 January 2016, which gathered 600 travel exhibitors and approximately 40 000 visitors over the time span of a weekend in Norway’s snow-drenched capital.
Oslo Travel Expo – Telenor Arena has become one of the most popular and important international meeting place for the travel industry worldwide, and it is hence the ideal platform for promoting South Africa to a large and travel eager Scandinavian audience.
The Oslo Mission had a beautifully decorated stand with stunning images of the rainbow nation as well as flags and artifacts and an array of promotional material consisting of maps, DVDS and leaflets.
The stand received a lot of positive attention as well as a solid stream of pleasant visits from potential tourists to South Africa, and the staff provided information, inspiration and insights to a large number of globetrotters.The SA Embassy also got the opportunity to showcase SA culture through a beautiful musical performance by Xoliswa Roaldsoy (vocals) and Zwai Mbula (marimba) to the great delight of the audience.


Captivating South African musical performance at the centre stage.
