During the tourist peak season, Namibian establishments can not handle the surge in visitors. But during the quiet season, the sector struggles to survive, facing low occupancy rates and severely diminished revenues.
Workable strategies to overcome this restrictive bottleneck will be one of the main goals of the annual congress hosted by the Hospitality Association of Namibia. Describing the major annual event as a tourism think tank, the association said this week the HAN Tourism Awards and congress is scheduled for next week, 21 and 22 June, in Swakopmund. The theme is Meeting of Minds to Discover the Hidden Gems of Namibia. The congress was launched earlier this week at an event where all the sponsors were named.
