More than 1500 visitors are expected to converge at Simply Nigerian Fair (SNF) scheduled to take place on Sunday, November 18, 2018 at 10, Adekunle Lawal Street, Ikoyi, Lagos.

The diverse and popular retail fair on its fifth edition would be for shoppers to pick up early Christmas gifts that always boast high-quality products and services.

SNF celebrates the best of Nigerian creativity and entrepreneurial talent, showcasing goods and services in six diverse categories: Food & Beverage, Fashion & Footwear, Hair & Body, Home & Lifestyle, Plants & Flowers and Fresh Produce.

Participants are expected to enjoy the lush garden setting, a vibrant food court, entertainment, music from a great DJ and Dieko Gilbert of Inspiration FM holding it down as MC while children can also look forward to the new play station experience organised by Ruff ‘n’ Tumble.

SNF will hold as part of Nigeria’s official activities for this year’s Global Entrepreneurship Week, the largest entrepreneurial event in the world.

“SNF has grown from our first fair of 50 vendors to this fifth one which will have 120 vendors. We remain committed to showcasing home-grown businesses, offering them a platform through which to expand their market,” says SNF Founder, Temi Shenjobi.

For the first time, SNF organisers hosted a pre-Fair Master Class exclusively for the vendors. The Master Class was led by SNF partners – Entrepreneurship Development Centre (EDC) of Pan-Atlantic University, Lagos State Employment Trust Fund (LSETF), Federal Ministry of Industry, Trade & Investment and Access Bank.

Also speaking was Nike Ogunlesi, CEO of Ruff n Tumble and Olatubosun Williams of Homely Investments.

“We organised the Master Class as a capacity-building initiative for our vendors to learn from the expertise of our partners and apply that knowledge to their own businesses,” says SNF Retail Director, Penelope Gobir.

The Simply Nigerian Fair continues to grow in size and scope, becoming a firm fixture on the Lagos social calendar and a powerful driver of made-in-Nigeria entrepreneurship.
