The Food and Beverage West Africa (FABWA) show,  which is expected to host over 250 exhibitors from around the globe set to display their wares will commence at the Landmark Centre, Victoria Island, Lagos from June 13th through 16th.

The organizers of FABWA have reported a dramatic expansion since its launch in 2018. With an estimated 6,000 visitors, the show will be the first to use the new show halls when it opens for three days.

It added that there is a need for more space due to the eight country pavilions with representatives from Dubai, Indonesia, Russia, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Egypt, Tunisia, and India.

The organizers also noted that local businesses such as Emel Corporate Solutions, Macadams, BCE, Cosmos, and more will be participating in FABWA, with more than 12 Nigerian food and drinks small and medium enterprises featured in the largest SME Zone yet. Jamie Hill, the Managing Director of BtoB Events, Africa’s largest trade events organiser, expressed his delight at the growing interest in this year’s edition of the show.

In his words, “The F&B West Africa (FABWA) exhibition’s remarkable growth from two to four show halls at the Landmark Centre is an indicator of the immense potential that the food and beverage industry sees in Nigeria and other countries. This expansion is a clear sign of the growing confidence in Nigeria’s economy.

“People from West Africa and around the world are looking forward to doing business in Nigeria. Our food and beverage exhibition is now at a truly international scale. We have a fantastic number of Nigerian businesses taking part and are excited that we have so many countries, more than 60, represented at the show.

It means we anticipate there will be more than 6,000 visitors from food retailing, production and distribution, as well as the hospitality and quick service restaurant (QSR) sector. We know how keen they are to see the latest developments and business opportunities from exhibitors from around the world.”
