The 12th Edition of Sanganai/Hlanganani World Tourism Expo which opened today took off to a good start in terms of attendance and stature, the Zimbabwe Tourism Authority has said.
Coming on the back of two high profile funerals one for former President Robert , Gabriel Mugabe and the other for Major General Trust Mugoba, the expo went as scheduled.
ZTA acting chief executive Givemore Chidzidzi said despite the deaths, the expo drew the anticipated number of international buyers and media.
“We’re delighted that the numbers which we projected and planned have come to fruition, Sanganai/Hlanganani is here with the same number of international buyers and media as promised.
“A good number of people thought it would not go ahead since we lost two high profile people including the founding father former President Mugabe,” Mr Chidzidzi.
He also hailed the success of speed networking, an enabling platform whereby international buyers meet with sellers on a one-on-one basis.
