My Account of The 2017 Akwaaba African Travel Market: Day 2


And so AKWAABA DAY 2 commenced with a pleasant surprise as activities of the previous day (Chef Challenge) took over the front page of The Guardian Newspaper. This was in addition to the raging online buzz on the success story of the maiden jollof rice war between Nigeria and Ghana.

With Exhibitors from all over Africa strategically positioned at the Eko Hotels and Suites venue, AVIATION DAY kicked off with aviation heavyweights sharing their thoughts and experiences on the panel topic, "One Year Accident-Free Commercial Aviation: What Did Africa Do Right?"

It was after this segment that the big one came - the WOMEN IN TOURISM CONFERENCE which saw 100 African Travel women get recognised for their contributions in the growth of Travel and Tourism business in Africa.

Among the honoured Travel 100 include Senator Princess Florence Ita-Giwa(Nigeria), Anastacia Ndlovu(Zimbabwe), Mrs. Rita Uko(Nigeria), Mrs. Eme Affiah(Nigeria), Mrs. Fatima Garbati(Nigeria), Bunny Bhoola(South Africa), Stella Obinwa(Nigeria), Mrs. Ellen Sirleaf Johnson(President Of Liberia), Annie Uwase Anuarite(Rwanda), Olanma Ojukwu(Nigeria), Abby Sarr(Gambia), Chiamaka Obuekwe(Nigeria), Madam Nancy Q. Sam (Ghana), Ngozi Ngoka(Nigeria), Julie Dabaly Scot(Kenya), Nseobong Ubong(Nigeria), Carmen Nibigira(Travel Expert,East Africa), Fatma Bashir(Kenya), Uloma Egbuna (Nigeria) and many more women from Uganda, Seychelles, Tanzania etc.

In her usual magical fashion, Ire The Stage Devi thrilled the audience with high-energy performances. Truly gifted! Carnival Calabar Revellers didn't do any less. Beautiful as always.

Lunch was interesting, as Akwaaba Day 2 came to a successful close with a cocktail party which held at Maison Fahrenheit.

Wow! Stunning! Hilton seems to be taking Africa by storm. Just a couple of years back, they opened the first ever in Eswatini.

Good location astounding but the staffs are rude and they make me wait so long for the service. They charge me more than what is on the website and did not refund me the manager is not helping with the issue

Thank you for sharing such a detailed review about ethiopian airlines in your post. I am an avid traveller and keep reading flight reviews to assess the options available. Your review particularly drew my attention because you have shared so many pictures to capture every aspect of the flight experience. It is a very nice effort.

I am really tempted to book the next ethiopian airlines ticket and relive your journey. The pictures shared with the post also reflect that you truly enjoyed the travel. Great post! I also like the fact that you have covered nuances about the food and entertainment service through the pictures. It helps people know what to expect on their travel by this airline.
