Webinar recording: ‘Partnering for Safer Travel: Updates from the SECURA Traveller Project’

Thank you for joining us yesterday for an insightful webinar on how we can collectively ensure safe and secure travel experiences in South Africa. Judging by the great engagement during the session, it’s clear we all share the goal of providing tourists with complete peace of mind.

Our expert panellists walked us through the key features of the SECURA Traveller App and its benefits for travellers and tourism businesses alike. We saw a live demo of the app’s quick response time and heard inspiring stories of how a streamlined incident management protocol has helped travellers during past incidents.

We also discussed how aligning communications and initiatives under the National Tourism Crisis Communication Plan can help us better respond to any incidents as one unified industry. By providing travellers with consistent messaging and support across stakeholders, we build confidence in visiting South Africa.

To keep the conversation going, we have provided links to the webinar recording and slides below. We have also included a link to the SECURA Traveller Toolkit, which contains resources to help your business drive adoption of the app among staff and travellers.
