  • During Karin's time with Gold Reef City she successfully managed the Gold Reef City Casino Hotel and the sales team responsible for complex sales. Karin is a loyal, hardworking team player with a great passion for the hospitality industry.
    She did an outstanding job at Gold Reef City! OnBoard Representation lifted our image and increase our market share way beyond what classical marketing alone could have done.

  • Over the past year, OnBoard Tourism has facilitated several local and international broadcasting locations for our television programme. Our experience with them as a company has been nothing short of excellence. Going beyond our expectations and having an all-round professional attitude has impelled us to continue utilising their service. Their vast experience and knowledge in the industry makes us confident in every choice made on our behalf. It is reassuring working with a company that operates in excellence.

    Real Women, Real Life
  • I have had the privilege of being professionally associated with Karin Matodes for the past 15 years. Holding
    portfolios in South and East Africa, including Mozambique, of Marketing and General Management over the past 30 years in corporate and leisure/resort, boutique and 100 keys plus properties, the networking connections, contacts and opportunities from the trade and media, referred and introduced by Karin, have been instrumental in the growth and development of each business model I have had to work with

    I can say without reservation that 'whatever we have collaborated on together has been successful'. Working with someone like Karin who has a similar mindset of 'nothing we cannot overcome and achieve' is indeed rare. I would contract and recommend her and her business model without hesitation.

    Diana Howell
    Kurland Hotel
  • I have had the pleasure in having worked with Karin and her team at OnBoard over the last 4 years.

    Her professional and reliable approach to representation has without a doubt assisted in maintaining existing clients as well as establishing and growing new markets.

    The trusted and long standing relationships that OnBoard have amongst the leading DMC and MICE companies in the South African market has been invaluable in our marketing efforts.
