On 30 January 2018, Tourism Update and SA Tourism hosted a webinar on ‘The effects of Western Cape water shortage on tourism’.  The speakers were SA Tourism CEO, Sisa Ntshona, CEO of Wesgro, Tim Harris, and Fedhasa Cape Chairperson, Jeff Rosenberg. Harris summed up the core message, when he said: ‘We need to make sure we get a clear message across to the international community and answer any tourist concerns.  If you hear anyone saying that they are considering cancelling or suspending a trip or major event, make sure that they understand we have the resources to accommodate them’.  Harris also spoke of the close working relationships with major events to make sure that they do not impact the municipal water systems.  The key message delivered was ‘Cape Town is open for business!’
