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.

Kudos to you and your team.”    HOTELS Magazine, Editor in Chief
