|Dear ATCNews Readers
Whilst our movement maybe restricted and we adapt to a ‘new home office’ we wanted to touch base with you, heart to heart and reassure you, our travel community is important to us and we’re still here.
As the reality of the lockdown settles in here in South Africa with many of ustrying to get into the routine of working from home in our bid to #flattenthecurve, we wanted to make one thing clear:
WTM Africa is still here. We are planning to use our lockdown time to keep your brand on the map and keep travel and tourism alive until we reach the end of this pandemic tunnel.
Because there is light at the end of the tunnel.
There will be no Netflix and chill sessions in the middle of the day, we have not scheduled any DIY missions, we’re not going to be sipping on a botanical G&T by the pool, and sun bathing in the garden is a definite no-no.
But let’s all agree to still do that on the weekend and then plan a darn good holiday when this is finally over.
While we stand in solidarity with our fellow South Africans and our friends around the globe, know that we’re still keeping things moving.
Together we will Travel Again!
Don’t cancel your dreams, postpone and stay connected Let’s #SaveTourism
