Plett Tourism heading to WTM London 

Plett Wedding Supplier Stakeholder meeting

Plett Tourism heading to WTM London 2022 in November

Plett Tourism has embraced the opportunity to work with Plett wedding and event organizer, Jana Goodman, as she prepares to attend WTM London in November this year. Plett Tourism was presented with an extremely valuable opportunity with Jana as she attends WTM London as well as the National Wedding Show in London. She secured her own stand with SA Tourism, this is not a Plett Tourism project, this is a private initiative that Plett Tourism has agreed to partner with as it promotes destination Plett. Plett Tourism recognises her as an ambassador which means that the association is aware that she will be representing the destination and will assist her with a digital presentation to showcase the destination with Fact Sheets, Beach Information, Plett Tourism videos, Plett Maps and Plett Tourism photos that tourism professional can use for their own marketing purposes – very generic, non-product specific information.

It is our hope that wedding industry stakeholders will embrace the concept of meeting on a regular basis. It is important that Plett Tourism also participate in the conversation to better understand the needs and issues that are addressed to make wedding opportunities more accessible for all local suppliers, to discuss any issues that may be disrupting the industry, and to explore collaborative opportunities to apply structure to our plans going forward. The stakeholder platform itself is not owned by any particular business and it is a coming together of like-minded people who have an invested interest in the Plett Wedding industry.

Jana hosted a Plett Wedding Supplier Stakeholder meeting on 31 August at the popular Grand Lookout restaurant, in collaboration with Plett Tourism, to bring the industry together with the purpose of networking and voicing issues about the wedding industry in Plett.

Plett Tourism is excited to start the conversation about the wedding industry to better understand the needs and issues that should be addressed to make wedding opportunities more accessible for all local suppliers, to discuss any issues that may be disrupting the industry, and to explore collaborative opportunities.

Approximately 40 wedding industry suppliers from all areas of Plett attended this first stakeholder meeting which allowed for informal introductions and engagement which was followed by a WTM London presentation. Jana will be representing Plettenberg Bay as a Plett Tourism ambassador with the focus of promoting the town as a premier wedding destination.

Part of the promotion will be to promote wedding packages to select tour operators and buyers from the wedding / engagement / honeymoon markets. Plett Tourism will be assisting Jana with marketing materials and a platform to showcase the packages, to share a full listing of wedding service providers and to showcase Plett wedding content across the Plett Tourism media platforms. Plett Tourism will continue to market the town as a wedding destination to the tourism professionals as part of their ongoing marketing campaign.


A more romantic setting for a wedding you’ll arguably struggle to find. The Garden Route and specifically Plett has long been a coveted wedding destination. With natural beauty and a variety of locations to choose from, the area can offer opportunity for smaller, boutique-style weddings in private villas to larger, ornate weddings on the beach and in amazing unique venues.


World Travel Market London is the market leading international travel event unlocking business opportunities for inbound and outbound tourism professionals. This is the premier location where travel professionals come together to connect and hear about how leading companies and destinations have reshaped trends in travel and trade. It is the premier opportunity for international travel providers to do business with world-class travel buyers, as well as to showcase their services to the international press.
