“We are proud to receive the Special Recognition Award for Tourism Innovation less than a year after our official launch.

With our verified accommodation – hotels and apartments – and carefully curated experiences, we have over the past 10 months shown people reasons to travel within the country, whether for business or leisure, solo or as a family or group,” said Ifeoma Okafor-Obi Business Development Director, aura by Transcorp Hotels.
“With just a few clicks on our platform, users can be on their way to enjoy their best staycation ever, visiting hidden gems in different parts of the country and staying in hotels and apartments that feels like home, Okafor-Obi added.
Also commenting on the recognition, Dupe Olusola Managing Director/CEO Transcorp Hotels Plc, owners of aura by Transcorp Hotels stressed that the platform has proven to be a tool for revolutionising domestic tourism in Nigeria.
“World over, governments use domestic tourism as a tool to eliminate poverty, generate employment, improve economic growth, upgrade infrastructure, as well as support and develop local and national pride. As Nigeria’s leading hospitality company, we have set the pace in providing a platform that shows people beautiful places to travel across Nigeria, and gets the perfect place to stay, improving the attractiveness of different destinations in the country,” the MD/CEO added.
“It is quite encouraging that our investment in aura by Transcorp Hotels to support the development of domestic tourism has not gone unnoticed.”
