The maiden edition of the ‘International drinks festival’ is going to hit Lagos state from the 1st to the 3rd of December.
The international drinks festival brings together the beverage industry, top-notch professionals and consumers for a ground-breaking experience geared towards moving the drinks business forward.
Speaking with two of the planners on #WakeUpNigeria this morning, we were able to get the intentions and the goals set for this storm that is about to hit Lagos, Nigeria.
Accoding to Akin Eso amd Ezekiel Adamu, the planning representatives, the program is strategic and brought to the beginning of December, Nigeria’s summer as they classified it to attract people.
Also, they advised that people could get their drinks for the festive period there and a lot of commerce would be going on which is one of the goals of the festival. “Our exhibitors will be giving the best as we will be getting everything as per drink. A major success is how much commerce we will be able to do during the festival.”
They pointed out that more emphasis would be placed on the local drinks than the international drinks.
“There would be an influx of local drinks manufacturers with new drinks,bringing a new level of drinks than what they are used to. We will be bringing professionals from all over the world to talk about how to get a package for local drinks. Also,a big brewery is coming to Nigeria, so we are looking at how to bring this international brand and set it up here which would create jobs and employment for people in Nigeria.”
Adding that there would be little food to complimeant the drink, they emphasized that there is age restriction for the alchohol section which is 18+ but none for the general sections.
The program has been stipulated to start at 9am , the exhibition ends at 5pm and the beer village continues “till very late” with a lot of entertainments going on from the beginning to the end of the festival.
