POOL Club, Federal Palace Hotel, Lagos, was last week filled up by operators of travel agencies, hotel and hospitality businesses. They were around to welcome members of the South African Tourism Board, who were in the country to introduce the various destinations in South Africa to Nigerians.
The event, which served as avenue for stakeholders in the hospitality and travel and tour business to network, saw the tourism board officials show some of the clips on television to guests.
The tourism team also attracted staff of the South African Consulate General, Lagos, led by Ambassador Mokgethi Sam Monaisa.
Inviting Nigerians to the South African Republic for business and holidays, Monaisa said, “South Africa and Nigeria are the two giants in the African continent and it is befitting to bring the people together for business and to promote the general good of the continent.
Apart from dining and wining, the event bereft the long speeches usually experienced at such gatherings, was spiced with generous doses of old and new skool music.
