Mr R Stroebel ( First Secretary) promoting South Africa


From 31 May - 2 June 2013, the South African Embassy had the pleasure of participating in the 2013 Feira das Viagens travel fair which took place in Campo Pequeno bullfight arena complex in Lisbon.

The event aimed at creating an opportunity to further promote tourism and maximising holiday sales to hundreds of potential visitors. Approximately 70 exhibitors were present, amongst travel agencies, airlines, cruise companies, online operators, hotels, tour operators, regional and international tourism offices and travel press.

The Embassy distributed maps and tourism information brochures in Portuguese which promoted South Africa as a travel destination of choice. The 3 day event attracted approximately 10 000 visitors and was widely covered by printed media and TV stations.
