More exhibitors and visitors at NUST Tourism Expo 2017

The NUST Department of Hospitality and Tourism hosted its annual Tourism Expo under the theme “Know Namibia.”This type of event is covered in the syllabus of the Hospitality and Tourism courses were the students are required to promote domestic tourism in their exhibitions.

This year the event was held in a larger venue on campus, in comparison to last year, showing the growth of the initiative. The stalls portrayed Namibia’s tourist attractions such as the Etosha National Park, the Swakopmund sand dunes and Sossusvlei.

The Marketing Executive: Support Services of the Namibia Tourism Board (NTB), Johanna Monde, delivered the keynote address at the opening of the Expo. Monde commended the students for their efforts and encouraged them to take full advantage of the exercise as this moulds them for the job-market.

Petrina Haufiku, a lecturer in the Department said: “This is an opportunity for the students to focus on developing innovative projects that promote Namibia as a favourite tourism destination, locally and internationally. I am proud to say the exhibitors have outdone themselves.”

The NUST Hotel School, which falls under the Department, is currently taking part in the Namibia Tourism Expo.

The event is a centralised platform for key players in the industry to market their products and services, and the public is encouraged to visit the stand and learn more about the various services the Hotel has to offer. These services include facilities that are suitable for corporate and social events.
