Press Releases

“I just want to congratulate you on the updates from your event, including this one in Africa. You are wise enough to send interesting, newsworthy reports coming out of the conference, especially for media who cannot attend. These are useful (we published more than one) and show understanding for what serious journalists want and need to cover an event without it reading like PR. Kudos to you and your team.”    HOTELS Magazine, Editor in Chief
