#EndSARS: LCCI reschedules Lagos International Trade Fair

The Lagos Chamber of Commerce and Industry (LCCI)  says that it has  rescheduled the 2020 edition of the Lagos International Trade Fair.

Dr Muda Yusuf, Director-General of  LCCI, said that the fair which was scheduled to hold from Nov.5 to Nov. 15, 2020 has been rescheduled for between Dec. 4 to Dec. 13, 2020 at the Tafawa Balewa Square, Lagos; both physically and virtually simultaneously.

Yusuf  in a statement on Thursday also said that  the postponement was occasioned by the economic disruptions brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic and the recent #EndSARS protests across the nation.

“The resolve to hold the 2020 edition of the fair is in line with the need for quick restoration of normalcy to the economic and commercial activities in Lagos State and our support for the ongoing ‘Protect Lagos’ Campaign.

“In addition to the general interest fair, the annual international business expo will also feature special days for corporate organisations to showcase their inventions, innovations, and sustainability initiatives simultaneously during  the fair.

“The focus, this year, is to facilitate trade and chart a way forward for the economy to exit the impending recession.

“The exhibition will also facilitate networking among exhibitors and between exhibitors and visitors.
