Getaway Show heads for the Cape.

Getaway is bringing its highly successful outdoor and travel show to the Cape next month. The Western Cape Getaway Show will take place at Lourensford wine estate in Somerset West and will bring a uniquely Cape feel to the popular event.

 “For a few years now, many of Getaway’s clients have requested a show in the Western Cape, and we feel the time is right,” said the show’s manager, Debbie Tapson.

“The venue is perfect. It has excellent facilities, is well-known for its beauty and accessibility and has successfully hosted similar large events,” she said.

Taking place from 25 – 27 March, the Western Cape Getaway Show’s attractions will include a farmers’ market, morning hikes in the surrounding mountains, wine tastings and photography workshops. The expo will offer a fun day’s outing for the whole family, with a climbing wall, Bungee Bounce, Bubble Ball, helicopter rides, a 4×4 track and lots of other fun activities for the young-at-heart. This, in addition to the wide range of exhibitors showcasing affordable accommodation, beautiful destinations, camping and outdoor gear, 4×4 vehicles and accessories and adventure opportunities that epitomise the Getaway Show experience.

The decision to host a Western Cape show was sparked in part by the success of last year’s Getaway Show at the Dome in Gauteng, which was lauded by exhibitors as the best in years and who reported a substantial increase in sales. Exhibitors’ comments ranged from “never in our wildest dreams did we expect to do the kind of sales we did!” to our stand was a huge hit and we more than doubled our client base and awareness.”

The show also saw the biggest turnout of visitors in years– more than 22 000 people attended the show over three days, a response Getaway plans to repeat next month.
