VIBRANT NEW ROADSHOW VENUE REVEALED

The London venue for the Safari Roadshow will be aboard The Yacht London (www.theyachtlondon.com), which is moored at Victoria Embankment on the Thames. 

The Roadshow is in London from Wednesday 27th February  - Friday 1st March and will host different sessions for 40 exhibitors from Uganda, Tanzania, Zambia and Zimbabwe. Whilst Kamageo's Tim Henshall was keen to mention that "Buyers spaces are filling nicely, which is no surprise given the quality of the exhibitors", event organiser, Tracey Sutton insisted we emphasise "The Yacht is fully heated and there's plenty of space for all our meetings".  For more information please contact Tracey Sutton via tracey@kamageo.com
