Cancellation of 2016 Awards Event ! !
Pleased be advised that with much disappointment and heartfelt regret, the 2016 African Diaspora World Tourism Awards and Travel Expo that was set to take place this week-end has been cancelled.
Because our two main sponsors who had committed to presenting the awards event pulled out the last minute and the lack of people paying the cost to register for the event and hotel accommodations, we have had to cancel. The hotel would not grant us the banquet space at discount cost when the desired occupancy rate that we committed to at the hotel was not met.
We have had no choice but to cancel. We will be meeting with people who are still coming to Atlanta. Refunds will be given back next week.
Still congratulations to awards recipients. We still honor you and hope that you will keep up the good work. Keep the faith and let’s all keep moving forward.
