The fact remains, as Arese Ugwu puts it, that even though not everyone is an entrepreneur, we are all called to be entrepreneurial in our thinking. That way, we can add value wherever we are. So, even if you’re not an entrepreneur, the Connect Nigeria Business Fair can still help you and your career.

This year, the organizers of Africa’s Biggest Business Fair have contracted globally acclaimed industry giants to teach attendees how to start and grow their businesses, build strong business networks, improve their soft skills and develop new ones. This will motivate them to embrace innovation and continuous development.

What is more, while networking, attendees may see new possibilities for growth in their industry; they may get insider information on job openings and be able to make educated decisions career-wise.  


So you’re not yet an entrepreneur but you have a vision and you’re wondering how business fairs such as this can help you. Well, wonder no further.

As an entrepreneur, paying for a booth at the Business Fair guarantees visibility for your business. The branded booth, the product exhibition, advertisement on the event website will announce your products and services to a larger audience.
