TravelNigeria, others set for tourism summit, expo
Event Director at TravelNigeria, George Agbanelo, said the platform is billed to deepen on-going discussions, stimulate measurable actions and provide the most inclusive and sweeping solutions on how to convert Nigeria’s tourism assets into economic growth and prosperity.
In a recent press release, Agbanelo stated that stakeholders during the sessions would deliberate on five key issues namely natural assets, infrastructure, financing, policy and strategy, and technology and the summit will cover current burning issues affecting the industry.
According to him, Nigeria, like other countries on the continent, is keen to convert favourable demographics in relation to tourism into economic growth and prosperity.
He added that the expo will be graced by over 3,000 expected travel-ready guests which is a unique platform for showcasing new travel and tourism opportunities, generating new businesses, creating new partnerships/alliances, boosting brand exposure, and selling travel and tourism related products and services.
Agbanelo stated that the organisers have designed the event to set the tone for how tourism can be utilised as an engine for economic growth and job creation through innovative business models, new technologies and strategic partnerships.
It will also provide a platform to network, explore new tourism markets and products including the promotion and preservation of the country’s rich cultural heritage and wildlife.
