The stride into the most promising continent in the world – Africa by the Vibes World from Lebanon can be described as magical, timing and a huge success from the onset.
What then seems more pleasing is the part played by the African Tourism Board -the leading tourism organization operating within Africa with a global presence aiming at fostering, advancing and positioning the continent for the best yet to come.
Meeting in Kigali
The whole idea to have the CEO of Vibes World, Mr. Yehia Elhajj in Kigali was at the instance of ATB which aimed at connecting businesses from other parts of the world to Africa, opening up more to the outside world as well ultimately marketing our entire 55 Member States to the global community.
At the Rwanda Tourism Week 2022, when Mr. Elhajj participated in the ATB Partnered event which happened to be one of the best of its kind in terms of MICE tourism in 2022, a decision was arrived at on the urgent need for Vibes World to domicile part of its business in Africa.
Prior MoU between ATB and Vibes World
Prior to this invitation, an MoU had been signed between VW and ATB which necessitated business to business collaboration and definitely the invitation. As the saying goes, the rest is now history and success is in the making for Vibes World and the African Tourism Board as true partners in progress.
