Travel, tourism summit holds
TravelNigeria is a platform billed to deepen on-going discussions, stimulate measurable actions and provide the most inclusive and solutions on how to convert Nigeria’s tourism assets into economic growth and prosperity.
The event director, Steve Ike, said TravelNigeria will gather the most influential travel/tourism players, industry professionals and policy makers for a full day of expert-led conferences and tailored networking events to learn, share, discuss and chart a new path for the Nigerian travel and tourism industry.
With the theme: ‘Innovating, collaborating and growing to restore the travel and tourism industry in Nigeria’, TravelNigeria is a two-pronged event comprising a national conference and exhibition.
TravelNigeria will also host premier and only business-facing and consumer-facing travel and tourism expo in Nigeria.
Scheduled to hold March 23, 2019 at the Eko Atlantic City Waterfront, Victoria Island-Lagos, TravelNigeria is billed as an event of international standards aimed at promoting the travel and tourism business in Nigeria and developed to promote tourism as an engine for economic growth across Nigeria.
According to Ike, Nigeria, like other countries on the African continent, is keen to convert our favourable demographics in relation to tourism into economic growth and prosperity. Nigeria’s tourism potentials provide some of the best opportunities.
The organisers have designed the event to set the tone for how tourism can be utilised as an engine for economic growth and job creation through innovative business models, new technologies and strategic partnerships.
The event will also provide a platform to network and explore new tourism markets and products including the promotion and preservation of Nigeria’s rich cultural heritage and wildlife.
Stakeholders, during the sessions, would deliberate on five key issues namely natural assets, infrastructure, financing, policy and strategy, and technology. The summit will cover current burning issues affecting the industry.
