Thank you to everyone who helped us to get WYSTC 2015 underway yesterday!
Over 30 willing volunteers started the day by rolling up their sleeves and working with local school children to plant 40 trees as part of this year’s local volunteer project (pictured left).
In the evening, hundreds of delegates joined our colourful welcome reception, which took place at the Cape Town International Convention Centre (CTICC).
During the welcome reception, delegates enjoyed a range of local favourites – including delicious Malay curries – while enjoying entertainment provided by a Marimba band and dance troops.
A very warm welcome was provided by Thulani Nzima, Chief Executive Officer at South African Tourism, and Nombulelo Mkefa, Director of Tourism at the City of Cape Town.
Follow us on Facebook and Twitter (#WYSTC2015) for updates during the event and visit the reception desk in Hall 4A on the ground floor if you have any questions or need any assistance.
