Group hosts summit on Africa’s development
In a bid to build value-driven and sustainable business confederation in the country, The Luxury Network Nigeria (TLNN) is set to host the 2019 Financial Times (FT) Africa summit, on the topic ‘Rewriting Africa’s Single Story’.
The event, which is billed for October 13-14, at Claridge’s Hotel in Mayfair London, would centre on the state of Nigeria’s dynamic luxury sector with insight from global brands, retailers and pioneering visionaries on overcoming the barriers to ethical luxury practices and transparent business partnerships.
The 2019 FT Africa Summit is the 6th edition and is expected to attract senior government officials, business leaders and senior level executives for the discussions on current issues about Africa.
The Managing Director, TLNN, Cas Ojo, revealed to The Guardian that the discourses on how to further stimulate dialogue about the business of luxury in Nigeria and Africa would continue on the October 15 with high profile stakeholders at the Connaught Hotel, in Mayfair, London on the topic ‘An inspiring conversation on the future of luxury’.
“The event which will be chaired by FT Africa Editor, David Pilling, will bring together 120 decision-makers from leading companies across Nigeria, the UK and globally in order to analyse the current players in the Nigerian market, assess the challenges, opportunities and the mid to long-term economic outlook for Nigeria.
“It would also review solutions to ethical luxury that Nigeria can provide to the luxury industry, evaluate the impact of foreign investment in the development of Nigeria and her local communities and educate on how brands can engage the growing Nigerian population in the diaspora,” she said.
