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 and video clips from the rainbow nation, as well as flags and artifacts and promotional material consisting of maps, DVDs and leaflets.

The stand received a lot of positive attention and a solid stream of pleasant visits, with the staff providing information, inspiration and insights to a large number of potential tourists to South Africa.

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.
