It was an exciting evening of fun and glitz as Clarion Events West Africa Launches the second edition of Multimodal West Africa. The event which held at Golfview Hotel, G.R.A Ikeja had key stakeholders in the logistics and transportation industry in attendance.
Multimodal West Africa is an international, transportation, logistics and supply chain management exhibition, designed and targeted to engage all major stakeholders in the industry across all the sub-sectors and the value-chain. The platform is provided for players in both public and private sectors to actively engage and proffer strategic solutions to buffer the current challenges currently being experienced at the event.
This year, the 3-day event will kick off from Tuesday, 23rd-25th January at the Landmark Event Centre, Victoria Island, with over 100 local and international exhibitors and over 1,000 confirmed attendees.
