The Lagos International Trade Fair (LITF), the biggest of its kind in West and Central Africa, will from the 4th to 13th of November, 2016, bring to fore this year’s edition of the LITF. This year marks the 30th anniversary, being 30 years since the LCCI took over the event from the Federal Government.
The theme of the 2016 fair, “Positioning the Nigerian Economy for Diversification and Sustainable Growth”, is a strategically chosen one, at a time when Nigeria is in dire need of a diversification of her economy, having for many years been dependent on oil and gas. Thus, in union with all government levels, the LCCI aims to foster a partnership that would see the development of the nation via agricultural and other non-oil resources and made-in-Nigeria products.
Hosting the general interest fair is a space of 40,000 sq.km offered by the Tafawa Balewa Square, Onikan, Lagos, and it is expected to see in participation, over 500,000 visitors and 2000 local and foreign exhibitors over the ten-day period. In addition, there will also be a B2B exhibition tailored to give business executives a networking platform. This exclusive business exhibition will be taking place at Eko Hotel and Suites from the 7th to 11th of November.
The Trade Promotion Board of the LCCI invites intending exhibitors to register for the trade fair. Sales booth sizes include
- INDOOR (Shell scheme stands) = ₦16,500/m2
- INDOOR (Unbuilt) = ₦15,000/m2
- OUTDOOR = ₦10,000/m2
