David Damiba

The quality of the people that you interact with, the knowledge that they have, the experience, world view, regional view are extremely enriching. I'm looking forward to the next edition. For me, the quality of the panels is absolutely incredible.

Jerry Mabena

Chief Executive Officer, Motsamayi Tourism Group

It's a fantastic forum that brings in so many different people from different walks of life, and just now I don't even know how many contacts I've made. Anybody out there should consider attending these meetings, for their own good and I don't think there are many meetings as good as this in the world.
