The Tourism Lekgotla was established in February 2000 in Rustenburg with the aim of creating an annual communication platform with tourism stakeholders, product owners and other government institutions to work together for the development and promotion of tourism in the Province.
It is an attempt to encourage discussions amongst tourism businesses, the government and communities to network together and discuss challenges and obstacles facing the tourism industry, mutual marketing opportunities, learning and introducing new marketing trends, addressing consensus and resolving on the way forward strategies.
