Business Events of the Month: September

Our selection of business events for the month of September covers some of the year’s most anticipated conferences and exhibitions. They include the biggest gathering of representatives from packaging and printing industry brands; a high profile fashion show; and a real estate event organized by a forward-looking property firm.

There’s also a big trade show for food products, a major gathering of agribusinesses, and an event for the digital services sector.

  1. Africa Fashion Week Nigeria

Africa Fashion Week Nigeria

Africa Fashion Week gives upcoming Nigerian fashion brands the platform they need to reach a wider market. It’s one of the more keenly anticipated fashion events in the country. But it does have a following beyond Nigeria, partly because it also targets diaspora designers, and organizes an equivalent of its Lagos event in London.

Attendees will get a glimpse of what Nigeria’s fashion scene currently looks like, and perhaps, a glance at its future trends as well.
