Our main focus was to draw the attention of the world players in the Industry to this Continent which is considered as the “Continent of Opportunities”. The results were astounding, more so the number kept on increasing with each edition of the event. Swissport is one of the most prominent players among them who joined hands with us from the very first edition of the event held in 2011 by opting to be the Diamond Sponsor of the event. From then on, the second edition of event to this 4th edition they remained our most valued Platinum Sponsors. A Hat-trick, one must say!!!
