Lagos transport fest to leverage partnership on mobility growth
Organisers of the Lagos Transport Fest have said it is poised to define the business models, infrastructural requirements, and public-private partnerships that will finance mobility projects.
Besides, it promised to provide tech solutions that would enable the equitable movement of people, goods, and services.
With intent to harmonize West African transport leaders across road, rail, logistics and port ecosystem, the Lagos Transport Fest is also designed for terminal operators, shipping lines, bulk exporters, investors and governments looking to forge new frontiers for the economy through road, ports and rail connectivity, optimisation and new business opportunities.
With focus on pressing issues within the sector, industry leaders and investors will unite again for the second edition of the yearly flagship transport event, Lagos Transport Fest, slated for 15 and 16 of December, to exchange ideas guided by the theme, “Building partners for mobility growth.”
Building on the successes recorded from the flagship edition last year, which hosted more than 500 attendees from 10 countries, the event has now grown to become West Africa’s premier meeting place for the transport industry.
A statement by the organisers reveals that this year’s edition will spotlight thoughts across the road, rail, logistics, and port ecosystem that will define the infrastructural requirement, digital tools, and public-private partnership that will finance mobility projects and enable the equitable movement of people and goods.
The key focus areas for this year’s conversations will include the future of public/private partnerships, and how they can accelerate mobility projects; mobility as a service; the future of ticketing, and payment for West Africa’s transport market. Others are accelerating Nigeria’s economic recovery through a resilient port and logistics sector; improving efficiency in ports through digitization; railing up to a connected Africa; and leveraging debt capital markets for infrastructural developments.
The Lagos Transport Fest 2020 will also feature exhibitions of the latest products, technologies, and services from transport companies to an involved audience (B2B) that includes investors, suppliers, service providers, etc.
