News Article/Announcement
MCA Namibia support MET to bid for the 2013 Adventure World Travel Summit
17 Feb 2012

The MCA Namibia is supporting the Ministry of Environment and Tourism to bid for the 2013 Adventure Travel World Summit (ATWS). The Minister of Environment and Tourism Honourable, Netumbo Nandi-Ndaitwah said during a media conference held on 14 February 2012 that the next two weeks are crucial, as it is a competitive bid.  

 

MCA Namibia’s support to the Ministry is through the North American Destination Marketing (NADM) initiative of the Namibia Tourism Board (NTB) that aims to bring more tourists from the USA and Canada to the country.

The NADM Campaign is working with a team of public and private sector tourism stakeholders to prepare Namibia's bid to host the 2013 Adventure Travel World Summit (ATWS).  

 

The NADM staff helped prepare and facilitate the recent press conference held by the Minister of Environment and Tourism, the collection of content for the bid and assisting in the writing as well as compilation of the document.

Namibia is up against 50 countries to host the event, which is an annual conference that brings together 700 adventure travel professionals who specialize in adventure tourism.

 

The bid document will be delivered to the Adventure Travel Trade Association on the 01st March 2012, and Namibia will know later in August when ATWS announce the successful bidder.
