Nigeria-American Chamber of Commerce (NACC), in collaboration with the Alliance for Green Alternatives, plans to showcase the best of Nigeria’s agro businesses at the Agricultural Trade and Investment Expo and Trade show in California, United States.
The three-day event, holding from 13th February to 15th February 2018, is the world’s largest annual outdoor agricultural exposition with 2.6 million square feet of exhibition space, 1,480 exhibitors, 105,780 attendees, 43 states and 71 countries.
The expo will bring together agribusiness experts, key global industry players across the value chain and participants from different countries in the world. There will be seminars, exhibitions, agricultural tours, special events, networking and side attractions such as Taste of California, Toyota Giveaway, Wine and Cheese Pavilion amongst others.
“The NACC had been organising trade missions to the United States,” said in a statement from the Chamber to BusinessDay, noting, “The last was this year to Miami Florida, USA, where we had success stories in new deals and investments. Next year the Chamber looks forward to agriculture as more discourse has opened up on the potentials it offer to the Nigerian economy. Niger is richly blessed in agricultural resources and it is time to link businesses here to global enterprises.”
Participating businesses at the expo have the chance of leveraging the Chamber’s partnership with the US to increase their sales, meet buyers and distributors, gain insight from industry experts and promote their business across border further generating millions of naira in new business for their companies.
“The Chamber remains committed in promoting the development of trade, commerce, investment and industrial technological relationships between the public and private sectors of the Federal Republic of Nigeria and the United States of America further driving socio-economic growth and development for all,” NACC stated.
