The Gauteng Getaway Show is back in September! One of country’s biggest travel, outdoor and adventure events, the Getaway Show, sponsored by Mercedes-Benz Vans, returns to Joburg and it promises to be even bigger and better this year!
Hosted at the Ticketpro Dome from 23 to 25 September,the show will feature over 400 exhibits with more than 19 000 visitors expected to stream through the doors over the three days. You can expect to find information on travel destinations, accommodation, outdoor gear, 4×4 products and accessories, motor homes, caravans and trailers, camping equipment and adventure operators. There is, without doubt, something for everyone.
For thrill seekers, there’s the Adventure Area where visitors can enjoy slacklining and abseiling. For the less hard-core visitor, there’s the Travel and Taste Theatre featuring local cuisine, wine and beer, a Wine Village with samples and products to buy, and – for the even mellower person – a Chill Zone serving coffee and phone charging.
Other expected highlights include
- Plenty of competitions.
- Discounted offers and specials on various gear and products.
- Browse through the latest camping and outdoor equipment.
- Kids will be kept super busy with various fun activities on offer.
- After exploring the show you can visit The Beer Tent and unwind to live music and spend time with family and friends.
- The Getaway Magazine Wildlife Photography Workshop presented by world renowned photographer Michael Tucker of Big 5 Photos.
