After two successful editions, the popular Simply Nigerian Fair (SNF) is gearing up for a third outing on Sunday, November 19th, holding at the Garden Fusion Centre, 10 Adekunle Lawal street, Ikoyi, Lagos. The Simply Nigerian Fair will be declared open by film legend Ms. Kate Henshaw who will be among other expected celebrities and high-profile guests enjoying the upscale ambiance of the Fair and the impressive array of products on display.
The Simply Nigerian Fair (SNF) is a unique retail fair which promotes home-grown businesses by providing them an affordable platform through which to showcase their products, increase their market, broaden their networks and add value to their businesses.
SNF stands out not only for its truly Nigerian-themed product but also for the breadth of categories featured at the Fair – food and drinks; hair and body; home and lifestyle; fresh produce; fabrics and footwear; plants and flowers. The SNF team also screens the vendors carefully to ensure that the goods on display are both high quality and are also locally produced, grown or assembled.
“As proudly Nigerian entrepreneurs ourselves, we want to support Nigerian small businesses and help grow local brands. SNF offers them a fantastic platform on which to showcase their goods and services to a diverse and discerning clientele,” says Temi Shenjobi, Founder of the Simply Nigerian Fair.
This upcoming Simply Nigerian Fair will once again be in partnership with the Federal Ministry of Industry, Trade & Investment whose parastatals will be present at the Fair. SNF is also an official local partner for this year’s Global Entrepreneurship Week, the biggest entrepreneurship event in the world, with events holding concurrently in more than 170 countries. Global Entrepreneurship Week in Nigeria is coordinated by the Enterprise Development Centre of the Pan-Atlantic University, Lagos. SNF partners also include Leadway Assurance, Lagos Parks and Gardens, Cabal Entertainment, House of Tara and Style House Files, conveners of the recently concluded Lagos Fashion and Design Week.
“We are so grateful to all our partners and media partners for their support of SNF. This is going to be our biggest and best Fair yet, as we are doubling the grounds to allow up to 100 vendors, creating more space for shoppers, more entertainment and a bigger café area for customers to relax and enjoy the delicious foods on offer,” says SNF Director, Nkiru Asika, speaking on behalf of fellow Directors, Linda Okome and Penelope Gobir.
