The event is to bring together close to 50 foreign media houses, 10 African ministers, as well as an array of ambassadors, sector stakeholders, and chief tourism officers from a range of nations.

Akwesi Agyemang, acting CEO of the Ghana Tourism Authority called on worldwide media before the event to collaborate with the local organising authority to best represent the country, currently in a period of marked commercial growth, to the outside world.
