Dear Prospective Member
We extend an invitation to you to become a member of the Hangklip-Kleinmond Tourism Bureau (HKTB).
Our Bureau is one of four Tourism Bureaux on the Cape Whale Coast, extending from Rooi-Els to Pearly Beach in the south. Tourists, both local and foreign, regularly visit the Hangklip-Kleinmond Bureau Visitor Centre (Shop 1 Protea Centre Main Road in Kleinmond), and our service record is today regarded as amongst the highest standard in the Western Cape.
When you join the Hangklip-Kleinmond Tourism Bureau, you help mobilise our efforts to increase visitor numbers to our beautiful region, thereby benefitting our local economy, environment, and communities.
As a member you are entitled to the following benefits:
Free brochure display at the HKTB Visitor Centre in Kleinmond.
Free listing on HKTB’s official information website, www.kleinmondtourism.co.za. Your listing can include your logo, web link, business information, and photos, and can even be used to promote seasonal specials and events.
You are entitled to free membership with WESGRO – The Western Cape Destination Marketing, Investment & Trade Promotion Agency. As a HKTB member, you will receive immediate inclusion on their website, www.wesgro.co.za, as well as the opportunity to be part of their national and international marketing campaigns. Your listing can include your logo, web link, business information, and photos, and can even be used to promote seasonal specials and events.
You would also be provided the opportunity to advertise in our official HKTB brochure. For a nominal fee, members of HKTB can promote themselves in this exclusive marketing pamphlet, which will be distributed at all events and trade shows countrywide. The brochure is also actively distributed at visitor centers in Kleinmond, Rooiels, Betty’s Bay and Pringle Bay, as well as the rest of the Cape Whale Coast and the Overberg.
Accommodation Members would benefit from our centralized reservations service, operated from the HKTB Visitor Centre. This service is provided on a 10% commission fee structure. Contact our office for details.
