The first ever Malawi Tourism Exposition 2017 has commenced Wednesday at Bingu International Convention Centre (BICC) in Lilongwe.
The Tourism Expo 2017 will run for three days, the first two days for closed businesses and the third for the public viewing.
Principal Tourism Officer in the ministry of Trade, Industry and Tourism, Sarah Njanji told YFM online on Tuesday that the event has assembled over 120 local and regional exhibitors.
