Carol Weaving named Sport Industry Entrepreneur of the Year

Carol Weaving, Managing Director of the Thebe Exhibitions and Projects Group, was named the Entrepreneur of the Year at the Virgin Active Sport Industry Awards ceremony in Johannesburg.
These annual awards celebrate the most innovative, influential and extraordinary work produced across the entire sports market.

The entrepreneur award recognises the individual who has masterminded the stand-out entrepreneurial business deal, development or moment in the industry over the past year.

Awarded for the inaugural Sports and Events Tourism Exchange (SETE) exhibition and conference that was held in Cape Town in July last year, Weaving said the main objective of the project is to grow South Africa's popularity as a sports tourism destination.

She said SETE is an example of a private/public partnership that works. "Our strategic partnership with South African Tourism has made it possible for us to have a significant impact on the industry. It is a partnership that works and a project that not only enjoys wide industry support, but also from the Department of Sport and Recreation and the Department of Trade and Industry. It is an honour to receive this award."

South Africa was recently named the 'World's Leading Sports Tourism Destination'. "This is no small feat," said Weaving, "and we trust our project has made a contribution."

SETE 2012 will take place in Durban from 12 to 14 September. Exhibitor bookings are open and the conference programme will be announced soon.
