Gtbank set to hold 2018 edi­tion of Foodand­drink fair

The Guardian (Nigeria) - - MEDIA & MARKETING -

FROM the prom­ise of mouth-wa­ter­ing del­i­ca­cies to the al­lure of wine tast­ing, Gtbank Food and Drink Fair 2018 is set to de­liver an ex­pe­ri­ence that will cer­tainly linger for the en­tire year in three days. Start­ing from April 29 through May 1,, the fair is ex­pected to bring to­gether small busi­nesses in Nige­ria’s food sec­tor, more than a dozen in­ter­na­tion­ally renowned chefs and food ex­perts and thou­sands of food lovers to cre­ate the big­gest food ex­pe­ri­ence in Africa.

Or­gan­ised by Guar­anty Trust Bank Plc, the fair was de­signed to cel­e­brate Nige­ria’s vi­brant food cul­ture whilst pro­mot­ing en­ter­prise in the small busi­ness sec­tor of the food in­dus­try. The 3-day event is free and would pro­vide the plat­form to con­nect with a wider seg­ment of ex­perts in the food busi­ness fields. Over the past two years, the fair has be­come a ma­jor event in the so­cial cal­en­dar of Nige­ri­ans and be­yond.

This year, the event will fea­ture a se­ries of Master classes in the art and busi­ness of food and drink whilst treat­ing at­ten­dees to a host of live cook­ing demon­stra­tions of favourite del­i­ca­cies by renowned in­ter­na­tional and indige­nous chefs. The care­fully cu­rated se­lec­tion of small food busi­nesses will of­fer the best culi­nary ex­pe­ri­ences in La­gos.

While com­ment­ing on the 2018 edi­tion, Chief Ex­ec­u­tive Of­fi­cer and Man­ag­ing Di­rec­tor of Guar­anty Trust Bank Plc, Mr. Se­gun Ag­baje, said, “Along­side the un­par­al­leled culi­nary ex­pe­ri­ence, the Gtbank Food and Drink Fair show­cases the rich­ness of Africa’s food cul­ture and the vi­brancy of the small busi­nesses in­volved in the in­dus­try. This year, we have added an ex­tra day to the fair, thereby in­creas­ing the op­por­tu­ni­ties for small busi­nesses to con­nect to more con­sumers as well as busi­nesses.

“Apart from the amazing ex­pe­ri­ences that we cre­ate for our tens of thou­sands of guests, it is the per­sonal tes­ti­mo­ni­als that we re­ceive from small busi­nesses that speak to the true value of the Gtbank Food and Drink Fair. Be­hind these small busi­nesses are hard-work­ing fa­thers, en­ter­pris­ing moth­ers and in­cred­i­bly pas­sion­ate youths, and when they share their re­mark­able sto­ries of record sales at the fair, we see not just the im­pact of our ef­forts at pro­mot­ing en­ter­prise but the im­mense ca­pac­ity of our or­ga­ni­za­tion as a plat­form for en­rich­ing lives.”
