The CEO of the Ghana Tourism Authority (GTA) will host a tourism CEOs’ breakfast at the Marriot Hotel on August 30 whilst the Minister of Tourism, Arts and Culture, Catherine Afeku, will deliver the keynote at the event.
The Africa Tourism Leadership Forum & Awards will serve as a gathering of leaders to dialogue, recognise innovation and celebrate progress. It will again serve as a single voice, unified and advocacy platform for Africa’s tourism leaders to put a spotlight on the continent’s tourism economy.
