LAGOS, (CAJ News) – THE recently-concluded inaugural Nigeria Manufacturing Expo, held in Lagos, has been hailed as a success.

The expo featured the latest and most innovative machines, tools, automation technology and specialist financial offerings from the more than 80 leading international and local manufacturing equipment and services suppliers over 2 300m² of exhibition space.

More than 2 600 attendees represented 24 different countries while 30 manufacturing expert speakers addressed hundreds during the free-to-attend conference sessions on the expo floor.

“The huge attendance at the Nigeria Manufacturing Expo exceeded our expectations,” says event director Russell Hughes.

“We were honoured to also welcome the Bank of Industry (BOI) as a key partner who are supporting local manufacturers with low, long term interest rates so they may re-tool and modernise.”

He said he was inspired by an array of Made-in-Nigeria products which were proudly promoted in the Nigeria Manufacturers Pavilion.

“It is our aim to support the Federal Ministry and Manufacturers Association to create an enabling environment in which local production can prosper. We believe that Nigeria is the next global manufacturing hub.”
