I look at the pictures from TWICE 2015, and I know that NIgeria is going places, and the Wedding/Events Industry is further going to take the nation by storm. What we have going presently is nothing compared to what we will have in 5 years from now, and thanks to Akin Eso, the brain behind the WED Venture ( WED EXPO, Wed daily, My Big Nigerian Wedding, The Wedding Show, The Wedding Industry Conference & Exhibition TWICE) for bringing all stakeholders in the wedding industry together under one roof. Do you know what it means to have likes of Lanre Olusola, Mai Atafo, Tara Fela-Durotoye, Banke Meshida-Lawal, Funke Bucknor-Obruthe, Ayiri Oladunmoye, Kelechi Amadi-Obi, Kehinde Iyiola and more convene to speak about the industry and the way forward, it means something great is about to happen and I no go carry last. TWICE 2015 was an amazing success and I look forward to TWICE 2016 (better start planning to attend, if you want your business to have global presence) I shared with us Misykona’s account of her experience at the event, now enjoy the official press release and photos from the TWICE team.
“The Wedding Industry Conference & Exhibition (TWICE) 2015 promised a platform for networking, mentoring and discussions among practitioners in the Nigerian wedding industry and it delivered all that and more! To the delight of many, TWICE was not only the largest gathering of wedding vendors, stakeholders, entrepreneurs and enthusiasts the country has ever witnessed, but has become the highlight event of the year for Nigeria’s Wedding Industry as it is set to be a yearly event.
Over 1000 wedding vendors and aspiring entrepreneurs from over 15 states attended the event which took place on Wednesday 4th February 2015 at The Haven Event Center, Ikeja GRA, Lagos.
It featured presentations from several seasoned practitioners in the industry who shared from their wealth of experience to the delight of the audience. The speakers included Banke Meshida-Lawal of BM Pro, Ayiri Oladunmoye of Oaken Events, Funke Bucknor-Obruthe of Zapphaire Events, Mai Atafo of Mai Atafo Inspired, Kelechi Amadi-Obi of Kelechi Amadi-Obi Studios and Tara Fela-Durotoye of House of Tara.
The highlight of the event was the address by Life Coach and Motivational Speaker Lanre Olusola who inspired the audience to greater success in their career and personal lives. Tunji Babajide, another Life Coach also inspired the audience with inspiring tips for their businesses.
Aside from the addresses and presentations by the speakers, there were several panel sessions where more seasoned practitioners in the industry joined the main speakers and shared their experiences as well as answer questions from delegates. It was a very interactive and engaging session.
Many thanks to our partners who made this event possible: The Haven Event Center, StageMakerz, Good Food, Photogenic Photobooth, TrendyBEE Events and all the Committee Members of TWICE: Adefunke Kuyoro of TWC Events Services, Yvonne Akpomedaye of Ivy-Lil’ Beth Concepts, Mercy Azuka of Kasamyrrh, Adenike Toikumo of Excellseum Events, Yemi Adewale of YDA Creations and Dada Gbenga of Artsmith Collections.
