Now, imagine all these options and much more under one roof at an event packed with loads of fun, interactive and educative sessions, and you have the International Drinks Festival!

So far, the event has witnessed several sections and has seen exhibitors, drink lovers and brands heavily represented.

 

 

The Exhibition
This is a great opportunity for you to sample from over 200 brands of the widest range of non-alcoholic and alcoholic beverages you’ve ever seen! There will be LOTS of product tastings and great discounts. Drink the best smoothies, cocktail and more you’ve ever tasted in our small business pavilion and get educated from different drink brands.

The Summit
With the theme ‘Where Drinks Means Business’, the Nigerian Drinks Summit will explore the business side of drinks manufacturing, distribution, and retail in Nigeria. This summit will attract over 500 delegates and 50 professionals from all sectors in the local and international drinks industry.
