The fifth Ghana Events Industry Conference is set to take place in Takoradi, in the Western Region, in November this year.
The conference, organised by the Event Vendors Association, Ghana (EVAG) would be on the theme: “A year of adaptability and implementation.”
Mrs. Kate Hassan, President of EVAG, said the theme for the conference was carefully chosen because event vendors played a very critical role in the event industry and the hospitality industry in general.
She said the conference aims to build a formidable team to work together, build capacity and encourage each other to learn new skills to become better in their field of work and impact the industry, for it to grow stronger.
Mrs. Hassan said the conference would be preceded with the nominations for awards from July 3 to August 3, after which voting would start from September 4 to 30.
“Vetting for final winners will be from October 4 to 10, and the conference itself will start from November 6 to 8. Some activities lined up for the conference include a welcome party, the conference sessions, and after party.
“The awards night will be held in Accra on November 15,” she disclosed.
Mr. Caleb Kofie, National Secretary, Ghana Tourism Federation, said the event forms one of the biggest contributors under the hospitality sector and had a critical role to play in all settings.
He assured EVAG of the continued support of GHATOF, saying “we are with you, you have our support.”
