BON Hotels’ growth in Nigeria has been prodigious and continues to flourish with the more recent acquisitions of 11 additional hotels in the region bringing their portfolio in West Africa up to 25 hotels across 14 cities and in so doing becoming West Africa and Nigeria’s largest and fastest growing hotel group. This has been a conscious thought process with the board carefully and thoughtfully selecting and identifying properties in the region that will ultimately create mega tourism circuits, boost tourism and link important centres across the region.
For some, conferences are a great idea, an opportunity to get out of the office – a room jam-packed full of like-minded (and not so like-minded) people, coming together with a common goal to share ideas and get motivated. For others, it’s a schlepp – it means time away from home and for the most part it’s laborious and plain boring. For this reason, when it comes to planning a conference these days, one has to think out of the box, be original and look outside the norm - come up with enticing and engaging ideas to bring delegates an experience they won’t forget.
