The breaking news from Into Africa involves key staff changes. Lut who has worked together with Nick for 21 years has stepped down from operational involvement in Into Africa, but remains a shareholder and will continue to consult on and offer advice to the company. Fortunately we have an excellent team of experienced project managers who are taking on additional responsibility to fill the rather large “boots” vacated by Lut.
Frances is now responsible for the leisure department which incorporates special interest groups and technical study visits. Frances and I will be working closely in the Nordic market. The leisure side of the business is growing nicely and we are in the process of recruiting staff to meet the demand. Alex is responsible for the conference and incentive team.
Nick remains at the helm of the company. He will be going to Barcelona for IBTM which is now only 4 months away. He looks forward to meeting you there for a personal update. Into Africa will also be present at Meetings Africa at the end of February 2017. We will be inviting buyers to this show which will incorporate a pre tour starting in Cape Town on the 25th February 2017. If you are interested in joining, please let us know.
