LocationBulawayo

Bulawayo is the second-largest city in Zimbabwe after the capital Harare, with, as of the 2012 census, a population of 653,337. It is located in Matabeleland, 439 km (273 mi) southwest of Harare, and is now treated as a separate provincial area from Matabeleland. The capital of Matabeleland North is now Lupane, as Bulawayo is a stand-alone province. Colloquially Bulawayo is also known by various names, these being the ‘City of Kings’, ‘Skies’, ‘Bluez’, ‘Bulliesberg’ or ‘KoNtuthu ziyathunqa’ – an Ndebele phrase for “a place that continually exudes smoke”. This name arose from the city’s historically large industrial base. The majority of the Bulawayo’s population belongs to the Ndebele ethnic and language group. For a long time in Zimbabwe’s history Bulawayo was regarded as the industrial centre of Zimbabwe and the city served as the hub to the country’s rail network with the National Railways of Zimbabwe headquartered there because of its strategic position near Botswana and South Africa. It is the nearest large city to Hwange National Park, Matobo National Park and Victoria Falls

A’Sambeni means “Let’s Travel!” in the Zulu/Ndebele language. It is an invitation to set off on a leisurely mission together – an offer of sunshine, good companionship, and adventure. The tremendous growth of Southern Africa’s tourism facilities over the past few years has seen an increase in visibility for the region for business and leisure, alongside greater demand for regional travel options encompassing multiple countries. The A’Sambeni 2018 exhibition gives local and international meetings, conference, exhibition and events organisers the opportunity to meet and network with Zimbabwe’s leading hotels, venues, and event suppliers. Business tourism is a newly emergent generator of income, employment, and foreign investment. The focal point of the A’Sambeni expo is to highlight this arena, with a view to capitalise and develop travel and tourism interest in Zimbabwe particularly, and in Africa as a whole.
