2012 E-Tourism Summit speakers talk about why they #LoveCapeTown
Hannah has one of the best jobs at Cape Town Tourism, because it involves hosting media around our amazing City, and uncovering the places and people we have to offer.
She likes to travel light, and spontaneous interactions with the locals are what make a trip interesting for her. She’s been known to rough it, but luxury travel is still Plan A, and with an ever growing bucket list, the wanderlust is abated with regular road trips through the Western Cape.
Having travelled the world far and wide, her top cities include Casablanca, Bangkok and NYC, but her city of choice to live in is Cape Town, with its beautiful people, surroundings and lifestyle. She is known for her love of the theatre, books, beach time, cats and wine.
The 5th annual E-Tourism Summit, held at the Cape Town International Convention Centre from September 13 to 14, 2012, attracted hundreds of delegates and top keynote speakers to the inspirational Cape Town.
This year’s summit centred on the use of social media to leverage and convert online travel bookings.
While Damian Cooke, chief executive of E-Tourism Frontiers, Professor Dimitrios Bulhais president of International Federation for IT and Travel and Tourism, Helena Egan from TripAdvisor, Will Rocklin from YouTube, Roel Spee representing Facebook, Kerrin Sheldon from Humanity.tv, Justin Reid from Betapond and Tori Pearce representing Think provided great insights into how social media has made an impact to their respective fields and businesses.
They also took a few moments to share why they #LoveCapeTown with us in the video below:
