AI-driven travel exploration platform, Akwaaba App has announced its partnership with YouTube Creators Festival Ghana — an event that recognizes and rewards Ghanaian content creators, in addition to promoting local tourism in Ghana.
The partnership which is a blend of creativity and technology will give Akwaaba app users the opportunity to discover local businesses through the app’s interface, especially at this year’s YouTube Creators Festival. The move is expected to increase attendees’ overall vacation experience.
The 3-day YouTube Creators Festival — now in its third edition, has lined up engaging activities from creators tour to content creation workshop to the main event conference. The main event is scheduled for 25th November 2023 at SilverBird Accra mall 9am.
Attendees can find and save local establishments like shops, cafes, and restaurants to their schedules with ease using the Akwaaba App, simplifying their vacation plans. The app also gives users the chance to interact with locals, exchange travel advice, and evaluate establishments and points of interest.
For users who join their wait-list at www.akwaaba.app, they’ll get access to a complimentary 25-page travel guide titled “13 Countries to Visit in Africa in 2023,” in addition to an extensive feature set. Travellers wishing to experience the many cultures and landscapes of the continent will find the guide to be informative, with insightful analysis.
