The Gauteng Getaway Show, sponsored by Mahindra, returns from Saturday, 23 September 2017 to Monday, 25 September 2017 at the TicketPro Dome, Northriding, Johannesburg. Considered one of the country’s biggest travel, outdoor and adventure events, the show will feature over 300 exhibits with more than 20,000 visitors expected.
Showcasing over 350 exhibits including 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. Thrill seekers are going to love the climbing wall and laser shooting in the Adventure Area, and, for the less hardcore visitor there’s the new Travel and Taste Theatre featuring local cuisine, wine and beer; a Wine Village with samples and products to buy; and for the even more mellow, a beer tent where you can relax and listen to upcoming artists perform on the live music stage.
