The Hospitality and Tourism Association of Botswana exists to promote, encourage and police excellence in hospitality and tourism in Botswana.

Hospitality and Tourism Association of Botswana hosted its 32nd Annual Conference since its inception in 1982 in Kasane in April.

The event started off with a golf tournament at the CrestaMowana Golf Course, which attracted teams from both private and public organisations. Deals are often sealed on the golf course; the event proved a perfect platform for business people to network and build relationships.

The day closed with a prize giving ceremony at Chobe Safari Lodge, sponsored by Botswana Tourism Organisation. Pole position was scooped by M. Robinson, Kabo Kemoreile took the second position and third placed was Muller Keabetswe.

The main event was well attended by key players from the tourism industry.Officiated by Botswana Investment and Trade Centre chief executive officer Letsebe Sejoe, the Conference discussed the corporate social responsibilitythat the tourism businesses have in the communities where they operate.

Other central topics were water and power issues involving their respective organisations; connectivity – infrastructure and private sector initiatives; the tourism clustering initiative; and the Okavango Delta’s nomination as a World Heritage Site.
