NACCIMA, Atlantic Exhibition partner on trade fair regulation


Iyalode Alaba Lawson, NACCIMA President,

The Nigerian Association of Chambers of Commerce, lndustry, Mines and Agriculture (NACCIMA), has signed a Memorandum of Understanding with Atlantic Exhibition Nigeria, to regulate the trade fairs and exhibition sector in the country.
National President, NACCIMA, Iyalode Alaba Lawson, at ceremony which held during the weekend, said the MoU between the Association and Atlantic Exhibition, the consultant, became necessary to restore orderliness to unregulated hosting of trade fairs in Nigeria.
According to her, the initiative will also boost its revenue generation as there are a lot of trade fairs taking place across the nation without due permission granted by NACCIMA.
She added that the agreement with the firm would allow efficient execution of its mandate to the people.
Speaking with The Guardian on the significance of the initiative, Chief Executive Officer of Atlantic Exhibition, Ayodeji Olugbade stated that the signing of the MoU has established the NACCIMA Exhibition Enforcement Policy Unit (NEEPU). 
He said exhibition in Nigeria has become a huge tool for both local and international trade with an average of over 700 of such held yearly.
He stressed that the time has come to put structures in place to coordinate, manage and also strengthen events’ sector and exhibition in Nigeria.
NEEPU as an agency he said, is set up with the sole purpose of regulating the policy enforced by NACCIMA, ensure that all exhibitions that would be organised must be duly registered with NACCIMA while any organisation that fails to comply with the policy won’t be enabled to organise any trade fair or exhibition. 
He said the enforcement would help to avoid conflict of related events and give right to organisers to use NACCIMA’s accreditation logo.
Olugbade assured that relevant stakeholders would be sensitised on the new initiative while its structures and policies would also be made available to the public.
