First Secretary (Tourism) Marsha Holdway attended the New York Times Travel Show that has been running successfully for the past eleven years. The show attracts thousands of people that work in the trade industry such as tour operators, travel agents, vacation property owners, Press as well as travel writers. It also attracts thousands of travelers looking for their next holiday destination.

The Zambian Tourism Board 'Booth' was well branded with an impressive back drop of the Victoria Falls. Over six hundred and fifty (650) visited the Zambian booth for the entire show. This is an impressive figure because the quality of the clientele and trades people was very high.

First Secretary (Tourism) observed that the show provided a perfect platform to educate visitors to the 'Zambian Booth' about Zambia, it's rich culture, it's geography, it's tourist assets, including the fact that Zambia is home to two thirds of the Victoria Falls. She also took the time to explain that Zambia has enjoyed 50 years of peace and prosperity, highlighting the forth coming golden jubilee Independence celebrations on the 24th October 2014.
