  1. NICON NOGA has been out of existance for over a decade… its called Transcorp Hilton now – organisers shouldve done a bit more research as that pertains to someone’s brand. Overall a good concept to set up an award system for the people “behind” the scenes; it helps this industry strive for brilliance. Good initiative!
