The Cape Winelands invited the world to our neck of the woods by showing off what we have to offer at the ITB Berlin 2023 held from 5 to 7 March. The Cape Winelands District Municipality (CWDM), together with the local tourism association, Visit Stellenbosch, and various stakeholders proudly represented at the South Africa stand.
It may have been snowing in Berlin, but the sun was certainly shining on our stand. The South Africa stand walked away with a top recognition by receiving one of the top three Best Exhibitor Awards (BEAs) in the Africa category.
The CWDM representatives used the opportunity to have a face-to-face engagement with the South African Ambassador to Germany, His Excellency Ambassador Stone Sizani. The discussion centred on ways of attracting German investors to the Cape Winelands District.
Several introductions were made to possible investors during the weeklong visit to Berlin, Germany.
