Multimodal West Africa exhibition holds March 2017
Stakeholders in the transport and logistics sector in Nigeria would converge on Landmark Event Centre, Victoria Island, Lagos for a three-day exhibition tagged Multimodal West Africa 2017 starting on March 14, 2017.
The exhibition is expected to hold in the same venue with the Nigeria Manufacturing Equipment and Raw Material Expo.
Clarion Events West Africa, the organisers of the event said Multimodal West Africa is leveraging on the success of Nigeria Manufacturing and Equipment Expo (NME) and NIRAM Expo.
Over 50 top transport and logistics companies, about 120 equipment manufacturers, more than 100 raw materials manufacturers and other allied industries like finance, insurance and consultancy services are expected to display their products and services at the event.
Also, about 2,000 cargo owners and shippers would grace the exhibition.
The organisers added that Multimodal West Africa 2017 would give terminal and port operators, freight forwarders, shipping lines and clearing agents the unique opportunity to reach over 5,000 customers.
According to the organisers: “When you consider that 90 per cent of exhibitors for the NME are foreign equipment manufacturers from all over the world, 90 per cent of the exhibitors for Multimodal West Africa and the NIRAM expo are indigenous, it gives us a right mix of local and foreign business people. This would create a robust event that will add great value and support the Federal Government’s efforts to revitalise the Nigerian industrial sector.”
Some of the speakers scheduled for the exhibition are AGM Operations, Nigerian Ports Authority, Hajia Aisha Ali Ibrahim, Executive Secretary, Nigerian Shippers Council, Mr. Hassan Bello, Chief Facilitator/CEO, Multimix Academy, Nigeria, Dr. Obiora E. Madu, General Manager, DSV Nigeria, Mrs. Oluremi Ajayi, General Manger, Gadolng Nigeria.
Gabriel Aghunor, Operations Manager, Procter & Gamble, Nigeria, Temitope Ogunfayo, Deputy National President, Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport, Mr. Alban Igwe, Director, Governing Council, Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport, Mr. Francis Ehiguese, Suleiman Ibrahim from PwC Nigeria, Warehouse Manager, Guinness Nigeria Plc, Babatunde Omolabi and the Chief Executive Officer, Ove Arup & Partners Nigeria Limited, Kunle Adebajo.
The Managing Director of Clarion Events West Africa, Dele Alimi, said the co-location of the three events was to ensure better value for all stakeholders and to consolidate the opportunities provided by the three events under one roof.
“Instead of having people coming to three different events within a 90 days interval, what we have done is to integrate these opportunities into one,” he stated.
