"It is anticipated that the race (J&B Met) will generate approximately R58 million for our province’s economy, with R14 million of that in fashion sales alone...Event tourism is a significant driver of economic and jobs growth in the Western Cape’s tourism sector. Other events that make a significant contribution to the Western Cape’s economy are the Klein Karoo Nasionale Kunstefees (R95.9 million), the Cape Argus Pick n Pay Cycle Tour (R450 million), the Old Mutual Two Oceans Marathon (R80 million), the Cape Town International Jazz Festival (R498.6 million) and the Wacky Wine Weekend in Robertson (R30 million). Our Destination Marketing Agency, Wesgro is aligning with these events with the view of converting attendees at these events into return visitors.” Western Cape Minister of Tourism, Alan Winde.
