Durban Tourism Awards – Have you entered?

The inaugural Durban Tourism Awards is set to take place in May, coinciding with Indaba.

The purpose of these awards is to thank the businesses that have shown resilience whilst encouraging others to constantly explore innovative ways in which they can adapt to the dynamic conditions that influence our industry globally.

Due to the COVID 19 pandemic, businesses have been unmotivated and we saw for the first time, the industry’s turnover reaching an all-time low.  An example, for the festive season of 2020, (1st December to 31st January), our projections were sitting at an average of 45% occupancy rates in all regions in Durban.

The idea is to utilize this platform to ensure that Durban remains the destination of choice for new and repeat visitors, intra-provincially, domestically and when borders open, keeping Durban at top of mind for our international visitors.

Nominations are now open for establishments in the following categories:

  • Service Excellence
  • Sustainable Development
  • Entrepreneurship
  • Special Achievements


The closing date for entries is 25 February 2022.
