​Window to Jozi's holiday and lifestyle options

Are you planning to go on a holiday of a lifetime in Johannesburg but don’t exactly know where to start, where to go and what to look for?

If that is so, don’t sweat – the Gallagher Estate in Midrand will this weekend be the perfect place for you to go to get all the answers you need.

All of Johannesburg’s splendour and credentials as the ideal holiday and activity destination will be flaunted at the Beeld Holiday Show, which starts at the iconic events venue on Friday and runs until Sunday 1 March.

The popular show, which celebrates its 11th year this year, is a one-stop holiday destination and activity shop that provides glimpses and samples of hundreds of holiday options under one roof. Representatives of Joburg Tourism, the City of Johannesburg’s tourism entity, will be there to position the city as Africa’s leading business and lifestyle destination that embraces a truly cosmopolitan tourism offering.

“This three-day international expo will give outdoor enthusiasts and campers of the contemporary times the opportunity to seek the opinion and views of the suppliers and providers of leisure and outdoor products,” says Joburg Tourism’s Laura Vercueil.

Joburg Tourism’s continued local and international promotional campaigns include presenting at business and leisure trade symposiums, where it shares its plans to maintain, defend and grow its market share.

“As the City of Johannesburg’s destination marketing organisation, Joburg Tourism remains focused on positioning the City not only as the continent’s leading business hub, but also as an exciting, vibrant year-round destination for signature events, lifestyle, the arts, culture, fashion, sports – not forgetting mega events. It’s the ideal African destination of choice,” added Vercueil.

Joburg boasts exceptional air and transport access, superior infrastructure, a diverse offering of accommodation, along with entertainment, nightlife, retail, arts, culture and heritage.
