Knysna fires: SATSA gives you the update

Bridgewater Manor, Knysna is open for business. Amid reports indicating otherwise Bridgewater Manor was not affected by the recent Knysna fires and are welcoming bookings.

As a token of SATSA’s commitment to serve industry needs, the National Executive Council voted last week that SATSA’s 2018 fee be waived for those members affected by the devastating fires.

“Although SATSA has many members in the Southern Cape region, it has sought previously to service these, from Cape Town. The result has been sub-optimum for all concerned,” says SATSA CEO, David Frost. A meeting to establish the needs of the area and to discuss a potential SATSA Chapter for the Southern Cape region will be held on August 1 at Fancourt from 10h30 until 12h30. This possible new chapter, encompassing members from Mossel Bay to Plettenberg Bay to Klein Karoo, will enable a more productive series of conversations and focus on the area.

Sisa Ntshona, CEO of SA Tourism, will give an overview of the latest developments at South African Tourism, including the new “I/We Do Tourism” campaign. He will also be available for a Q&A session. Frost will give an update of current issues facing the sector as well as an overview of SATSA benefits.

This year’s SATSA Conference, taking place at Spier from August 16 – 18, will also include a panel discussion on growing geographical spread to areas such as the Southern Cape and product development in lesser known areas. .
