The conference is set to hold on Friday, May 25, 2017 at the Balmoral Convention Centre, Federal Palace Hotel, Victoria Island, Lagos, from 9am to 3pm.
The conference being the opening activity of the Fashions Finest Africa Epic Show 2018 will hold with the theme: “How toIncrease Nigeria’s Participation in the Global Garment Production Industry”.
It will host fashion designers, fashion entrepreneurs, international and Nigerian Industry experts (public and private sector), experienced professionals academicians, analysts, development finance institutions and textile industry groups, among others.
Nigeria’s population is expected to be the 3rd largest globally by 2050, the necessity of ensuring attention in terms of policy formulation and implementation, appropriate investment, skill acquisition/ training is paid to the fashion, garment and textile industry “NOW” cannot be overemphasized.
The FFA Epic Show Conference presents an international platform that offers unparalleled opportunities for key stakeholders in the Textile and Fashion Industry to learn from;
The conference will feature keynote addresses, panel discussions, master classes, presentations and knowledge sharing.
Major policymakers and business leaders will engage with leading and aspiring/ ambitious Textile & Fashion Industry Stakeholders at Policy, Strategic & Tactical levels and disseminate Policy and Intervention Information to the right target.
We will ensure that there will be valuable and frank feedback that will help fine-tune MITI Interventions and contribute to achieving the government’s objective of diversifying and strengthening our economy via the Nigerian Fashion Industry.
The conference is a timely intervention focused on increasing textile and garment production in Nigeria thereby positioning and promoting home-grown fashion entrepreneurs for emerging opportunities in an increasingly globalised world. As Nigerian designers and fashion entrepreneurs gain increasing recognition across the world there is more than a compelling need for the local fashion production value chain to be strategically positioned to face the influx of global challengers.
