Paulina says: Uber exclusive ILTM Africa 2015 -is set to take place from 13th -15th  April 2015 at the Cape Town International Convention Centre, Cape Town, South Africa.

ILTM Africa is an aspirational hub for leaders of the African luxury travel industry ---and for the international trade [only] buyers to get their portfolios out, build relationships and attract new business.

The thing is......I see events like this --and wonder if there's anyone at GTA ---elegant enough to represent Ghana!! The sad truth ----Ghana's tourist whatever(s) just doesn't get it --and its such a shame. I also get the feeling --if they don't see said events on the likes of Ghana Rising Blog et al,  ---they would never know!!!
