The panellists - Mark Chapman (Tesfa Tours) and Marco Degasper (Simien Eco Tours) - were two Ethiopian Destination Management Companies and members of the Ethiopia Specialists collective who have recently visited the region and provided valuable feedback and insights regarding the current state of the destination. 
The feedback to this discussion showed, that it was a true must-attend event for European travel professionals who are interested in selling Ethiopia as a destination.
