The recently launched Nigerian Food Event 2019 has been gaining traction amongst manufacturers, suppliers and major buyers from across the food, beverage and hospitality sectors both in Nigeria and internationally. Consequently, organisers have introduced dedicated Pavilions to group together relevant products and regions.
Some of the key pavilions announced will be ‘country’ pavilions where we’ll see groups of top suppliers and manufacturers from those regions exhibiting to give an otherwise diverse selection of products a more coherent offering of that region’s primary exports. The current country pavilions include China, Korea, Norway and Turkey.
The Nigerian Enterprise Zone will be another pavilion present at this year’s exhibition. Specifically designed for SMEs, this will provide a great opportunity for companies looking to expand or enhance their existing reach in the West African region from the local market.
The regional director for Afrocet Montgomery announced the new development this week, he had this to say about the introduction of these pavilions, ‘With a brand new exhibition, we’re always looking for ways to bring together an exciting while structured offering, and we believe that introducing these pavilions will help, provide a better framework for SME brands as well as international brands interested in the West African market.’
This year’s exhibition will also include dynamic features such as ‘Drink Lagos’ as part of the co-located Nigerian Drink Event, a premier pavilion for those who source, buy or serve drinks from sommeliers to bartenders and the ‘Chef Skillery’ which will invite leading chefs into a live kitchen demonstration area to provide exclusive tips and tricks from trending ingredient combinations to technique.
NFE 2019 also includes a dedicated co-located show; the Nigerian Hospitality Event which will serve Hostex West Africa; this well-known brand will host leading hospitality suppliers and service-providers from across the region.
The inaugural edition of the Nigerian Food Event will be taking place from the 22 – 24 of October at the Landmark Centre in Lagos, Nigeria. Brought to you by the leading exhibition and event organisers in West Africa, Afrocet Montgomery, this new event will provide a pivotal trade platform for those working in the retail, food service, wholesalers and hospitality markets.
With the numerous show-floor events and demonstrations taking place, Afrocet Montgomery hopes to attract over 2,000 visitors with 150 brands represented from across the food, beverage and hospitality industries.
