In a thrilling new blog series, we’ll be interviewing repeat participants of the AAVEA conferences over the past six years. Today, we’re chatting to Happy Snappy’s Operations and Performance Manager Jonny Gardner.

Jonny Gardner shares his ongoing AAVEA conference experience with us.

What convinced you to attend the first Attractions Africa Conference in 2014 at Kirstenbosch Gardens?

Jonny: We genuinely believe in this conference and believe that if we want our industry to not only succeed but become sustainable world beaters we need to come together and share ideas. I attended the first conference in the hope to learn from others and I was not disappointed.

Why do you keep coming back?

Jonny: Its a fantastic concept and very well put together, how could I not come back.

Share one of your best memories from an Attractions Africa conference.

Jonny: Best moments for me would be the dynamic pricing discussion by Massimiliano Freddi, passionate and effective… funniest would be sneaking out of the conference at Gold Reef City to experience some of their jaw dropping rides.
