Veteran actor, Nii Saka Brown, is gearing up to host exhibitors from across the continent for the maiden edition of the National Hospitality and Tourism Fair at the International Trade Fair Centre, La, Accra from October 18 to 21.
The fair aims to boost patronage of not only Made-in-Ghana goods but African products.
According to Nii Saka Brown, his company, Result Focus, is looking at bringing players in the hospitality industry like hotels, car rental companies, restaurants, airlines and even embassies in Africa under one roof to market their services to Ghanaians.
“It is a fact that most Ghanaians don’t even know the facilities that are available within the tourism industry.
We chose Africa because it is easier for Ghanaians to go to African countries rather than securing visas to Europe or America. The Fair will assist the public, especially those who love travelling, to get maximum value for their money,” he told the Daily Graphic.
Nii Saka Brown said there will be activities like bed making and cocktail mixing competitions to spice up the event. Cultural troops will also be at the fair to showcase Ghana’s rich culture and add colour to the event while music is expected to be provided by live bands.
The actor said his main challenge so far is securing sponsorship and he urged corporate bodies to come on board.
The National Hospitality and Tourism Fair is being organised in collaboration with the Ghana Tourism Authority, National Commission on Culture and the Ministry of Tourism, Arts and Culture.
