The second edition of the Local Tourism is Lekker (LTIL) Expo is set to place at the Atlantic Villa Boutique Guesthouse and Conferencing in Swakopmund from 28 to 30 October. The first edition of the LTIL Expo took place in Windhoek in December last year. The event is endorsed by the tourism directorate of the ministry of environment, forestry and tourism (MEFT), the Emerging Tourism Enterprises Association, Destination Swakopmund and Namibia Wildlife Resorts.

“We are catering for 40 stalls for tourist-related companies. However, if there is more interest, we will increase the number,” said founder and organiser, Yvonne von Holtz.
A stand is priced at N$1 200. According to Von Holtz, the idea is to make it as affordable as possible for potential exhibitors. She added that they are in the process of hosting the executive director of the MEFT, Teofilus Nghitila, to deliver the keynote address at the expo opening. “It is going to be a laidback, casual event, so we don’t want too many people delivering speeches.”

Various local entertainers including musicians and dance acts, are also set to perform, providing the perfect ambiance for the event. These performers include Riaan Smit, Livinge Dennis, Blikweg, the Ama Buruxa Cultural Dancing Group, and others. Entry to the expo is N$30 per adult, while children are free.
