Introduction to KwaZulu-Natal
KwaZulu-Natal is all about cultural diversity and multi-cultural traditions, sophistication and style, an enticing destination that invites exploration - an alluring and fascinating place, with spectacular mountain peaks, expansive golden beaches, exciting wildlife experiences, legendary Zulu kings and reminders of its Colonial past. Durban, gateway to the province, is a sophisticated cosmopolitan city, a fusion of East, West and African culture, which is reflected in the city’s architectural styles, artistic flair and culinary tastes and flavours.
This cultural diversity makes Durban and the rest of KwaZulu-Natal such an ideal destination for business tourism. Successful meetings are not only defined by the networking and educational opportunities of such forums ... but also by the broader, rich and meaningful experience which is provided by the destination in which it is hosted. The Durban Kwazulu-Natal Convention Bureau plays a critical role in introducing this business tourism destination to both local and international meeting planners in a reasonably impartial manner offering support and advisory services to assist in delivering successful meetings.
“We are committed to transforming Durban KwaZulu-Natal into South Africa’s premier meetings, incentives, conventions and exhibitions destination, providing organisers and planners as well as business tourists with the latest information, unbiased advice and assistance” says interim CEO James Seymour. Not only is he committed to the task at hand, but is also passionate about responsible and sustainable tourism and the benefit that this has for the environment and local communities. “Tourism destinations and business tourism destinations have to adopt responsible tourism practices in order to sustain their competitiveness. These practices are the fundamentals of effective destination management.”
Durban and KwaZulu-Natal is the ideal choice for discerning people who seek exceptional events, inspiring incentives, conventions and business experiences that are beyond compare - a meeting experience without equal...so come and meet with us.
