Described by Meetings Africa, as having “an exceptional line up of speakers”, the 1st ECM Academy took place in Johannesburg between the 19th – 21st February and I was delighted to be part of the faculty that shared our experience with over 60 of the most promising young professionals from various convention bureaus and destination specialists from all over Africa. I got to experience first hand the amazing passion for their destination, and had the opportunity to see why Africa is heading for some Golden days in the conference & incentive industry.

One of the delegates, Taubie Motlhabane, Director of the Tshwane Convention & Visitors Services Bureau had the following comments to make “I’d like to express my utter delight at meeting you during the ECM Academy at Meetings Africa in Johannesburg in February. I thoroughly enjoyed the academy and especially learning from you and your marketing methods. Thank you for being so generous with your time and knowledge. My team can’t stop talking about you. They are so inspired!”

Tshwane, is just one great example of a destination that is using it’s past experiences to forge a new future for itself in the conference & incentive industry. A dynamic capital, a great team and immense passion about their city that they wear on their sleeves.
