CWDM Launches the 2012 Tourism Month
Following consultation and much soul-searching, the Cape Winelands District Municipality has settled for “TOURISM & SUSTAINABLE ENERGY: POWER SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT”, as its theme for the 2012 tourism month activities.
The launch of the tourism month activities and celebrations will be hosted by the Executive Mayor of the Langeberg region, Councillor D Gagiano, and addressed by the Portfolio Head of Regional Development & Planning, Councillor JJ Du Plessis, on 06 September 2012 at the Robertson Town Hall. Several other key industry players will also be present at the launch.
Councillor Du Plessis will give an outline of activities undertaken by the district municipality during the current year, including new marketing initiatives and public/private partnership aimed at conserving the district’s biodiversity wealth through, amongst others, conservancies with environmental education facilities.
The tourism month activities will be capped at the annual Cape Winelands Mayoral Tourism Awards event, to be hosted by Executive Mayor, Alderman De bruyn, on 20 September.
