The Chamber for Tourism Industry has congratulated the Chief Executive Officer of the Ghana Tourism Authority (GTA) for being awarded Marketing Man of the Year 2019, and his support in boosting Ghana’s tourism.

Akwasi Agyeman was honoured as the Marketing Man of the Year 2019 at the 31st National Marketing Performance Awards held by the Chartered Institute of Marketing Ghana (CIMG) on November 14 at the Labadi Beach Hotel.

The event for this year, themed “Marketing in a Disruptive Era”, was graced by many notable marketing gurus from various institutions in the country, and was a celebration of excellence in marketing.

Mr. Agyeman was awarded for his exceptional role in marketing Ghana as a tourist hub, especially in his role as coordinator of the “Year of Return” and the “Beyond the Return” initiatives and his leadership in marketing since he was appointed CEO of the Ghana Tourism Authority in 2017.

Speaking on the award, the CEO of the Chamber, Prince Ntiamoah Boampong said “turning the attention of the world to Ghana through the Year of Return project was a great marketing strategy and deserves this respected award.
