Sales manager Jimmy Mwagumba said the hotel industry needed modern technologies such as teleconference and Skype. "Having new technologies is vital to improve our services and compete," he said. Southern Sun Hotel is participating in Site for the first time. "However, the event is important because it's part of meeting with potential customers and other stakeholders to exchange ideas.
