Leading Event Planner Organises Platform To Promote And Train Stakeholders
BOLA AWOSIKA is one of the leading event planners in town. She is the brain behind B’event, an outfit that has handled a lot of high profile events within and outside Lagos. She is also well known with her Laviva hair range, which has become one of the most-sought-after hairpieces in the country. She is a goal-driven person and achiever. The latest effort coming from the stable of Awosika, is that she has decided to set up ‘Event-industrying’, a platform set up to promote, train, educate and bring all event vendors in Nigeria together under one umbrella. It is also organizing training and empowerment programs in collaboration with government and private organisations to benefit as a group in different packages being offered for SMES in Nigeria. The event, according to a statement made available to us, would be an annual fair and exhibition to promote the Events industry. The first Fair on October 2, 2017 would be taking place at B’event Center on Obafemi Awolowo Way, Ikeja. Awosika, a graduate of the University of Lagos, has done well for herself over the years. While in Abuja, she started her event company B’event Logistics Synergy and handled a lot of events for government and private individuals. She also set up another company Laviva Global Venture, a hair shop and boutique that she operated successfully. In 2007 she relocated to Lagos and began her event business.
