Plano, Texas — June 21, 2018 — WorldVentures™, the leading direct seller of global travel and leisure club memberships, drew exceptional attendance at BootCamp, a regional training event in Johannesburg, South Africa, from June 8 to 10, 2018.

According to Budget Your Trip, visitors to Johannesburg spend an average of 1,346 rand (US$103) per person, per day, making the overall financial contribution of attendees to the local economy around 1.6 million rand (around US$120,000) during the event weekend.
Highlights of the event include:
- Chief Executive Officer Josh Paine delivered an insightful address, providing an enthusiastic update on the trajectory of the company, from the products to the platform. “Our full product spectrum allows customers to engage with you in many different ways, anytime they want,” Josh said. “That makes it even more important for you to have a platform that allows you to run your business with excellence.

The foundation’s group of 100 volunteers kicked off BootCamp with a day of service at Botshabelo's on-site Urban Kids Preschool, which provides access to quality education for the children of impoverished and emerging families. Volunteers helped make a difference by giving the preschool a fresh coat of paint, fixing the roofs and playground, repainting parts of the jungle gym, and setting up and playing games with the kids outside.
