VOD Media and Acentic in the driving seat

Clients and associates of VOD Media and Acentic were challenged to take to the wheel in a ‘Top Gear’ style AMG Driving Academy experience at the Zwartkops Raceway, Pretoria this month.

Sean Murray, Chief Operating Officer of VOD Media, Acentic’s African partner said: “Just like motor racing, the hospitality technology business is moving at incredible speed.  The driving experience day was not only the perfect excuse to drive world class supercars in a safe and controlled environment but an excellent opportunity to meet up with some of our very valuable hospitality partners.  It would be true to say we gotvery competitive and I, for one, particularly enjoyed the skid pan exercise.”

We were pleased to have welcomed guests from Carlson Rezidor, Marriott , Sun International, Minor Hotel Group, Starwood, Tsogo Sun and Peermont Global.”

Carl Ward, VP Enterprise Solutions at Acentic added: “Working together with our partners at VOD Media has provided Acentic with the opportunity to expand with our customers, existing and new into the African market. Both companies appetite and desire has already secured business including Sun International, Westin, Radisson Blu with more incredibly exciting projects underway.
