According to a statement from the Chairman of the FCT Chapter of the Institute, Dr. Mrs. Ebikaboere Seimodei, FITPN, ICCA, said the one-day event being the first to be organized by the Chapter, promises to be insightful, engaging and beneficial for critical industry players and stakeholders of the tourism industry in the country.

Dr. Seimodei who is also the Technical Adviser to the Bayelsa State Governor on Tourism and Hospitality, asserts that for the growth and development of the industry, such occasion that brings relevant stakeholders in all facets of the industry together is imperative to be able to rub minds, wear the proverbial thinking caps and come up with laudable ideas and innovations that will move the industry forward in line with best global practices.                                  
The FCT Chapter of the Institute for Tourism Professionals of Nigeria came into existence in 2016 with a membership of about a hundred, and as the Chapter of the nation’s capital, it is challenged as a fore-runner to galvanize all key players in the industry so that the FCT and indeed the Nigeria as a whole, will have a purposeful and well guided direction to position the tourism and hospitality industry as a viable economic sector that has a vital role to play for the socio-economic benefits of the country.

The statement further reassured prospective exhibitors and vendors who have registered and paid for participation at the event not to fret. That their places at the event are assured. 

“We made this difficult decision due to a tragic event that happened on June 23rd which we believe if we allow the event go on, it will seem insensitive to the family involved. This is very much heavy on us as a whole lot has been invested time, energy and resources into making sure AFRICA WEDDING EXPO 2022 happen in grand style but unfortunately we have to postpone till later date.

“We are sincerely sorry for the inconveniences this very change will cause to everyone who is looking forward to the event. This is a phase that’s beyond our control.
