Limited Capacity seats available

Going beyond the traditional, we are curious on the contribution the Culture industries (Art, Music and Fashion) can make in promoting travel into Nigeria.

By 2030, consumer spending on tourism, hospitality, and recreation in Africa is projected to reach about $261.77 billion, $137.87 billion more than in 2015. What are we doing to ensure growth of our tourism sector?

We will be discussing these and much more with a key tourism stakeholder. Ms. Lola Emeruwa, Founder of WISH Africa will moderate the session. WISH Africa is a social enterprise in the form of a media and marketing company focused on promoting African stories.

There will be opportunities for members of the audience to put questions to the speaker.
