This is a new challenge we have taken and we will do our best to ensure that we deliver on our promise as the only true integrated marketing communications company in Ghana.”

Mr Ansah stated that Origin8 would soon roll out activities to reach out to corporate organisations for sponsorship, partnerships and potential exhibitors.
