The South African Embassy was back on the Tourism Road Show "Os Especialistas"
The Tourism Road Show group Os Especialistas (The Specialists) was back on the road in April 2016 (5-15). Celebrating its 11th anniversary, The Specialists travelled to 10 cities in Portugal to meet with local travel agents in organized workshops at selected venues: Algarve, Évora, Setúbal, Lisbon, Leiria, Coimbra, Castelo Branco, Viseu, Guimarães and Porto
The Tourism Section of the Embassy uses the opportunity to promote South Africa as a holiday destination of choice to the Portuguese travel agents. Besides the interaction at the 3 hour workshops, travel agents also had the chance to win prizes offered by the 13 tourism players. In this regard, the SA Embassy in Lisbon offered a total of 12 prizes ( one per city and two in the big cities-Porto and Lisbon): bottles of Amarula, SA wines and South Africa arts & crafts (beaded pens and key rings).
