The second edition of The Event Xperience Africa (TEXA) kicked-off yesterday at The Civic Center, Victoria Island, Lagos.
The event which is set to hold in Lagos from January 28th – 30th, 2020 is designed to further improve networking opportunities for event professionals by connecting seasoned and new professionals across Africa.
Convened by Nigeria’s foremost event planner and founder of Zapphaire Events, Funke Bucknor-Obruthe, the conference will engage participants on trade secrets, curated sessions, emerging innovations, and trends in the industry.
Speaking at the launch event, Bucknor-Obruthe said: “After reflecting on the success of the conference in 2019 with over 600 attendees from different countries in Africa we are delighted to return for the second edition. The event industry is an integral part of a growing economy and TEXA intends to build a legacy for millions of event entrepreneurs across the continent, empowering them, creating an enabling environment and also building an ecosystem for sustainable businesses. “We are extremely grateful to all our partners and sponsors and all participants that have come from across Africa to be a part of this great vision. Indeed, TEXA is not just about Nigeria but the whole of Africa.”
