The “AMFEST EXPO” LAGOS 2018 is a 5-day Business-2-business event packed with Conferences, Showcase Festivals and Exhibitions. It is the largest creative business networking platform in Africa and has taken up the responsibility of expanding Africa’s creativity economy into the global market.
The goal of AMFEST EXPO is to organise the African creative industry, build a bridge between her practitioners and the global business ecosystems, to foster growth in culture and business exchange among all stakeholders. Maybe one day, we will see African delicacies in the menu books of 5star restaurants around the world to cater for a growing African consumers in those areas. Maybe we will have an African Musician closing Coachella and Glastonbury Festivals. Maybe soon we will have African creative directors in Valentino, Oscar de Larenta etc. Maybe we will have Paramount pictures distributing African produced films soon. We hope to start what consummates into such relationships in the next 5 years.
