07 August 2015

There is only two weeks left before the African Construction Expo and Totally Concrete West Africa 2015 kicks off on 1-3 September

at the Eko Hotel, Lagos. As we edge closer to this exceptional event, excitement is building to welcome experts from Nigeria and abroad who will address the fundamental and unique needs of infrastructure expansion in the region.

With unprecedented support from associations and institutions such as Lagos Chamber of Commerce and Industry, The Nigerian Institute of Civil Engineers (NICE), the Nigerian Institute of Architects (NIA), the Nigerian Building and Road Research Institute (NBBRI), the Nigerian British Chamber of Commerce (NBCC), the Nigerian German Business Association (NGBA), the South African Nigeria Chamber of Commerce (SANCC), the Building Information Management (BIM) Institute and the Port Harcourt Chamber of Commerce, Industry, Mines and Agriculture.

“As the Nigerian Institute of Civil Engineers, we are proud to partner with the African Construction Expo and Totally Concrete Nigeria and look forward to seeing you there,” said Engr. Robbie James Owivry, national chairman of NICE.

Despite its leading economic position on the continent, Nigeria has significant infrastructure challenges to address in a very short time and will require stakeholders across various industries to come together and find comprehensive solutions. African Construction Expo and Totally Concrete West Africa is expected to attract over 500 attendees, making it the region’s most comprehensive networking platform across the cement, concrete and construction value chain, delivering unique insights on the latest developments and technologies associated with the concrete and construction industry. The interactive discussions focus on challenges and innovative solutions and will also identify new opportunities in the industry. Over 30 international, high-level speakers will present their views through presentations, case studies and interactive panels.

The special session on September 2nd on how to access capital, encouraging investment and understanding risk when undertaking construction projects in the Nigeria and in the region has been creating much excitement; and Joseph Tegbe a partner from KPMG Nigeria, will take the lead in this panel discussion with the financial world’s Nigerian heavy-weights from African Finance Corporation, Stanbic Bank, and Access Bank in this exciting session, sponsored by KPMG Nigeria. This is following a jam-packed cement and concrete seminar day on September 2nd that offers technical enthusiasts the opportunity of a lifetime to attend the most comprehensive cement and concrete seminar in the region.

We are also counting down the time to hear inspired Ghanaian architect and founder of Constructs LLC, Joe Osae-Addo who will treat the audience to his globally received serial discussion on the “African Condition”, looking at the development of megacities through the lens of architecture. When Joe calls, his followers answer. Make sure not to miss him and his unique and elite panel of local and international architects that are working wonders in developing construction materials on September 3rd.

The African Construction Expo and Totally Concrete West Africa conference will close with a session that will resonate with the region. There are none better suited to chair our final session than Dr. Ousmane Dore the African Development Bank’s country representative for Nigeria who will be steering the discussion on the regional benefits that will stem from Nigeria’s rapid development.

The countdown has begun. Book your seat now not to miss out on this exclusive and game-changing conference.
