Soccerex Reaches New Territories With Seminar Lagos

Mon 1st Oct 2012 | Football Industry Events

On Friday 28th September the Soccerex Seminar Lagos, the first international football business event in Nigeria came to an end.

After two days of learning, networking and football business we are proud to announce that following initial feedback it has proven to be a hugely successful event.

Early indications show that over 600 delegates attended the Seminar including government officials, federations, rights holders and football legends, and with over 40 brands including Pepsi, Porsche, Virgin Atlantic, Guinness and Edox there were plenty of opportunities to develop new contacts and business relationships. A 75:25 split between Nigerian and International attendees meant there was the right mix of local and international representation to help development of football in West Africa.

There were special guest appearances from former World Cup winner and Real Madrid legend Christian Karembeu, former Nigerian international Sunday Oliseh, ex-Bayern Munich and Ghanaian legend Sammy Kuffour and ex-Feyenoord, Nottingham Forest and Netherlands legend Pierre van Hooijdonk.

The Executive Governor of Lagos State, His Excellency Babatunde Raji Fashola had this, to say: “Soccerex will open Lagos as a distinct football destination, help grow the economy & drive development of football in Lagos State & all around the country.”

Soccerex CEO Duncan Revie commented: “The Soccerex Seminar Lagos looks to have been a huge success for everyone involved. We would like to thank His Excellency Babatunde Raji Fashola for welcoming us to Lagos. We have learned a great deal about football in West Africa and have made long lasting friendships with our counterparts in Nigeria. Judging by this year’s attendance and feedback, next year’s seminar will be bigger and better which will help us build on the current success and to ultimately develop football across West Africa.”
