LAGOS, (CAJ News) – FORMER executive at the Lagos Chamber of Commerce and Industry in Lagos, Dele Alimi, has been appointed Managing Director of the new Clarion Events West Africa office (CEWA) opened in the city.
Clarion Events is a global events firm.
“Joining an international brand like Clarion Events presents an opportunity to lead Nigeria’s foray into excellence in hosting of business events and exhibitions, which will help reposition the Nigerian economy and provide the much needed international investments by organising shows that will expose the deep potential of Africa’s largest economy,” said Dele Alimi.
“I believe the synergy between Clarion’s vast international experience and my tremendous knowledge of the Nigerian economy will break new ground and establish the brand as the number one show organiser in Africa.”
Until recently, Alimi was the Director, Trade Promotion and International Relations, at the Lagos Chamber of Commerce and Industry in Lagos.
Clarion’s Group Director for Africa, David Ashdown, said Clarion Events West Africa would focus exclusively on quality trade exhibitions in the local market and region.
“We are very excited to realise this opportunity in Lagos where the market will rapidly develop in time with the local and regional economic growth. We are also thrilled that Dele is joining us as he will be a great asset to the team and the group,” said Ashdown.
