Nigeria CEO Networking Event
 

Thursday 19 November 2015

6:00 - 10:00 PM 
Golden Tulip Hotel
Lagos

Africa CEO Network and Africa Business Communities present the First Nigeria CEO Networking Event. C-level Executives, Company Owners and Managing Directors are invited to participate.

Africa Business Communities is by far the largest social network for business professionals in Africa with over one million members. Through Africa Networking Events we are bringing our online business networks alive all over the world - now for the first time in Lagos.

Nigeria is not only the largest African country in terms of inhabitants - 185 million and growing fast - but also in terms of GDP. The size of the Nigerian economy was 569 billion US dollars in 2014, making Nigeria the 22nd economy worldwide - larger than Argentina, Pakistan and Thailand, to name a few. Economic growth in Nigeria was 6.2 percent in 2014 (source: World Bank).

In a way, Nigeria is making a new start. The 2015 elections brought a first time peaceful change of governement. The new president Muhammadu Buhari has put diversifying the Nigerian economy and fighting corruption high on his agenda.

That makes Nigeria a large, growing and dynamic economy in transition and thus full of business opportunities for both Nigerian and non-Nigerian entrepreneurs.

The  Nigeria CEO Networking Event is a perfect opportunity for top level networking and business generation! You will not only meet CEO's from Nigeria but from all over the world - in last year's edition of the CEO Networking Event in Accra, we had participants from no less than 17 countries...
