  3. 3. THE CUSTOMER JOURNEY Marketing and visitor services should be considered as part of one continuum or life-cycle, communicating with people at different stages in the ‘customer journey’. This was the foundation of our 2010 World Cup Strategy
  4. 4. Taking A Long-Term View Our focus was never on the short term benefits of hosting this event, but rather on maximising the long term benefits and changing the opinion the world has of us, converting soccer fans into fans of Cape Town. Our aim is to double the economic impact of tourism by 2020 and the successful hosting of the World Cup in Cape Town in winter has definitely made this target more attainable.

  30. 30. Citizens and Tourism “People often assume that tourism is only about visitors. Yet we know that for a city to be a great place to visit, it must also be a great place to live. For this reason, encouraging a sense of shared enjoyment and ownership of Cape Town’s tourist attractions among locals is essential. The World Cup proved that Capetonians are our most powerful destination ambassadors. They are also the people who can help to protect and preserve our city’s unique tourism assets.” Cape Town Tourism CEO Mariette Du Toit-Helmbold
