Who We Are

 

I Love Yzer is an events, publishing, marketing and brand management company established in 2013. Our aim is to promote Yzerfontein, Darling & the West Coast as a tourism destination to support our local events and businesses.

Events:

We organise seasonal markets, shows and other events to establish a tourism footprint in our area. Through the markets we support our local producers and crafters by providing them the opportunity to sell their products to locals and visitors, growing their customer base. Our main seasonal markets are:

Publishing:

 

In 2013 we launched the I Love Yzer Darling magazine as a medium to promote our local talent, events and all things West Coast. Mostly local contributors supply content and anyone is welcome to submit articles. The quarterly publication is a must have for all the visitors in our area. Learn about the locals, where to eat, what to do and have the handy pullout business directory nearby in case of emergency.
