Besides its promise of revitalising the travel and tourism industry in Nigeria and, eventually, other parts of Africa, AURA By Transcorp Hotels, the new digital hospitality platform of Transcorp Hotels Plc, is also set to grow a new generation of entrepreneurs.
The new platform was recently launched by Vice President Yemi Osinbajo in the presence of the trendsetting Chairman of Transcorp Hotels Plc, Mr. Tony Elumelu (CON), Speaker of the House of Representatives, Hon. Femi Gbajabiamila and other dignitaries, at the Transcorp Hilton Hotel, Abuja.
Aura by Transcorp Hotels is offering homeowners, hoteliers, restauranteurs and experience providers a unique opportunity to make money by listing their properties or services on the new technology driven platform.
Taking media practitioners on a virtual tour of the range of exciting packages that Aura promises, the Managing Director/CEO of Transcorp Hotels Plc, Mrs Dupe Olusola and the Director, Business Development, Aura By Transcorp, Mrs. Ifeoma Okafor-Obi painted the picture of the boundless opportunities already being created by the new platform across the country.
The exotic places, the historical sites, the picturesque scenes, the famous waterfalls and caves, the colourful festivals, the art and cultural collections all over the country as well as the varieties of foods prepared by celebrated Cheffs and the mind-blowing experiences that await people who take advantage of the offerings on the platform were extensively outlined during the engaging virtual tour.
Issues such as the standard of the facilities being provided, the verification processes, security in the facilities and currency of transaction on the platform were also well addressed.
The Aura platform, first of its kind in the country, would open up a whole new world of exquisitely luxurious and pleasurable experience for customers while investors and partners would have the opportunity to be part of an evolving multi-billion dollar business.
Mrs. Olusola and Okafor-Obi assured that security was top priority for the platform and that standards cannot be compromised.
According to them, patrons and matrons would be provided the best accommodation anywhere in the country, in the most secure and hygienic environment, guaranteed by the organisation’s strict verification process.
The currency of transaction on the platform is the Naira, which makes it easy for everyone, since the operations are, for now localised and the goal is to give people unforgettable and pleasurable experiences that would get them to fall in love with Nigeria.
Aura by Transcorp Hotels’ app is available on Android, iOS and web and the platform, the ladies reassured, will boost Nigeria’s economy through revitalisation of the hospitality industry that has been negatively impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, and through provision of opportunities for wealth creation for individuals, especially those who are creative and have unique experiences to offer.
Transcorp Hotels Plc., the leading hospitality Company in the country owns the award-winning Transcorp Hilton Abuja and Transcorp Hotels Calabar, and its Aura platform, in sum, is about where its patrons and matrons stay, what they eat and how they spend their time to ensure memorable experiences.
