The businesses were selected via an open and transparent application process, and they will be showcasing their unique travel products and services at the South African Airways pavilion of this year’s exhibition and workshop.
Regional Manager, West, North and Central Africa, SAA, Ohis Ehimiaghe, while speaking at the unveiling, noted: “Lack of mentorship and inadequate exposure are among the major challenges that start-up companies and emerging businesses face.”
“As part of our commitment to the growth of the Nigerian travel industry, we are happy to facilitate the participation of these budding agencies at the NewBrandsXPO to give them much needed exposure, and pleased to welcome them into our year-long business mentorship programme, designed to help them stay competitive and profitable.”
