Indaba, SAYTC Logo Launch party & AGM
2012 marked a departure from the conventional conference and AGM. SAYTC opted to take advantage of many of its members attending the annual Tourism Indaba held in May in Durban. Instead of a conference, SAYTC planned other activities around Indaba.
Following tradition, the activities started on the night before Indaba at the Tekweni Backpackers party, hosted this year together with Baz Bus. This party has become quite legendary and it’s great to go and see all the old and new faces.
For the third year running, SAYTC had a stand at Indaba. This year’s stand was bigger than the previous year and was very busy. A few visitors to the stand complimented the welcoming vibe. It was also an opportunity to show off SAYTC’s new logo.
To make it official, we had a logo launch party! For the second year we hosted a party at Happy Hippo. We had fantastic entertainment and a big tent to protect us against the elements, but also to create a nice atmosphere. We had about 450 Indaba delegates attend the party and it was great to show the rest of the tourism industry what we are about.
After 4 days of heavy networking and lots of business being done, Indaba came to an end and we headed to Ballito for our AGM. We had a great turn out of about 80 members and potential members present. It was a good AGM at a great venue.
