Cameroon – Tourism development in action at World Travel Market, London

Cameroon’s Ministry of Tourism at WTM

During World Travel Market 2012, I was lucky to be invited to attend a press conference arranged by Wonder* Communications on behalf of Cameroon’s Ministry of Tourism.

An in-depth, fun and structured evening in excellent surroundings. Continue reading ‘Wandermania On Tour’ hits Caribbean Scene Royale, Docklands
