“We are currently reconfiguring LTA’s convention bureau in line with the new organisational structure. It is against this background that we have also been accepted as an International Convention & Congress Association (ICCA) member, which gives us access to international associations looking for host destinations and venues for meetings. We are supporting the Business Events sector is Limpopo to bid for small to medium events and meetings as that will bring more delegates to our province. The benefits for us to attend shows such as IMEX among others include, global exposure and syndicated brand awareness to a marketing platform of key global decision makers in Meetings, Incentives Conferences and Events (MICE); targeted business to business meetings with hosted buyers and media; educate global trade about destination Limpopo MICE products and developments; and engage with key MICE buyers that sell South Africa to the European market.
