TTN, the region’s oldest and most established travel trade publication, sponsored and organised the Pecha Kucha Travel Agents Competition again this year, in partnership with Audience Alive.
Aimed at travel agents, the popular pecha kucha session saw companies showcase their destination or company through a pecha kuccha presentation. Pecha kucha, a Japanese word meaning chit-chat, is a simple presentation format where 20 images are shown for 20 seconds each. The presentation is followed by a quiz and agents with correct (and fastest) answers receive prizes.
This year, RwandAir, JA Resorts & Hotels and Seychelles Tourism Board were among the presenters and TTN also gave away a bonus prize.
Rwanda Air, represented by Timothy Njihia country manager, UAE, awarded one air ticket to winner Margare Bamidele, MD of SG Payless Bookings Lagos.
