The Exclusive Getaways Workshops for Travel Professionals are friendly, welcoming events showcasing fine South African lodges, hotels and travel products to people working in the local travel industry. Our workshops are popular with tour operators, travel agents, PCOs and other professionals with an interest in luxury travel in South Africa. We did our first travel workshop in the stylish ballroom of The Mount Nelson way back in the nineties, and since then our workshops have spread countrywide to the major centres and have become a popular forum for product education and networking. We’d like to share some of the feedback we’ve had from attendees and exhibitors.
