We are delighted to present a prestigious and exclusive event:
In partnership with EbonyLife Media & EbonyLife Place, Lagos Nigeria & BEPTA Travel
Supported by the UK Department for International Trade
Supported by Helen Grant MP, UK Prime Minister’s Trade Envoy to Nigeria
From 25th October 2021 – 1st November 2021
Our aim is to create a worthwhile and valuable experience for professional women who desire to enhance their career, business and brand. Most importantly, women who are looking to fulfil purpose and a better version of themselves. The trade mission has been purposely organised to provide value to women in all areas of their lives and challenge the narrative across diverse industries to remove the glass ceiling placed on Black women to thrive at every level of their professional and personal life. We encourage change-makers (from all genders), who share our aspirations for a more inclusive world, to join our Trade Mission.
Our delegation will consist of representatives from the UK & USA in Tourism, Arts and Cultural industries, as well delegates from the Beauty, Creative & Lifestyle Industries. This joint venture will bring all parties together to explore cultural and trade opportunities, cement business relationships, and celebrate accomplished individuals across these industries and countries.
Tourism, Arts and Culture – The Spirit of Lagos
An important component around exploring opportunities in Lagos Nigeria is understanding and embracing the culture. We have partnered with Lagos State Government and the Ministry of Tourism, Arts and Culture to introduce delegates to the rich vibrant culture that makes Lagos, Nigeria the ideal place for work, rest, study and play (whether visiting or relocating). By experiencing the culture, local customs, artistic flare and traditions first-hand, delegates will gain an understanding and appreciation of the spirit of Lagos, in terms of the people, environment, protocols, cultural norms, beauty, opportunities and lifestyle. This knowledge supports the building of relationships in a way that can make interaction smoother and easier for UK and USA delegates.
Beauty, Creative & Lifestyle
Lagos can boast to be a major business hub in Nigeria, enriched with a plethora of talented individuals representing the beauty, creative and lifestyle industries. The country is open for business and through our E.A.T.O.W trade mission, UK and USA entrepreneurs and professionals will be able to visit this beautiful city to explore the wealth of opportunities it offers. Whether you wish to promote your brand, relocate/expand your business, explore investment opportunities or build international relationships, Lagos has limitless potential.
Your Experience is Our Priority
Delegates will be accommodated at the most prestigious location in Lagos; White Orchid Hotel at EbonyLife Place and will be greeted by VIPs and dignitaries throughout the duration of our trade mission.
