Our Events sectors have created frameworks for cooperation and communication. Teambuilding and business tourism has developed new meaning and cultural crosspollination that bridges our countries. The future is an unpredictable new space where virtual events hybridize with the established sectors to create unimaginable new spaces.
The Arts bring a softness to the hard edges we now face while in the same moment give us a voice to speak through. Our crafters dream of a future where their works will attract our tourists back to our shores.
We all have a part to play in the recovery and rebuilding of this amazing combination of Industries that all relate to Travel. You are welcome in this world of Travel and we are here to support and facilitate the measures needed to open Travel safely once more.

The formation of Protocols are based on scientific evidence from various fields and the implementation is to go through public testing and sustainability studies. Protocols are about saving lives and protecting the public and private sectors.
In considering the implementation and use of Protocols we put People First as lives are at stake. Ethical considerations are to form a baseline in terms of the sharing of information and the use of data to form the needed Protocol measures.
The use of Technology fundamentally changes how effectively we are able to implement Protocols and then monitor their effectiveness. Monitoring data and the ever changing direction of the challenges we face in the world determines the speed of our response.
The protocols being implemented worldwide and relating to the current COVID-19 pandemic are guidelines, measures and procedures formed by medical bodies, councils, and scientific research and study. It is advised that you consult directly with your Government or representative Council or Association before implementing any COVID-19 protocols. There are many legal implications if you implement measures that are not uniformly accepted worldwide. Currently the main reference point for all COVID-19 protocols is the World Health Organization - https://www.who.int/emergencies/diseases/novel-coronavirus-2019
Please seek legal assistance and oversight when developing or implementing any protocol measures.
This site and all related sites DO NOT in any way or form develop protocols and all protocols listed on the site are guidelines only, by the relevant representative organisation. This site is a Public Benefit page with the aim of studying the impact of COVID-19 on Tourism in South Africa.
