VISIT RETAIL SOURCING FAIR

The Retail Sourcing Fair  in Lagos, Nigeria is your ticket to accessing the latest global innovations and product ranges in the home, gift, textile and hospitality sectors. The fair brings an expansive array of international designs to the continent for a trade-only expo aimed at retailers and commercial suppliers.

Here, international suppliers and manufacturers will connect with distributors and retailers from across West Africa, under one roof, conveniently located closer to home.

It’s a sign of the continent’s growing stature that manufacturers from Asia, Europe, and North and South America have woken up to its consumer power. The time is now – as an increasingly urbane and more globally connected middle class demands a wider product choice.

As a trade-only platform, we anticipate 10,000 visitors including retail, and commercial buyers, importers, distributors, agents, architects, specifiers, procurement specialists, developers, decorators, interior designers and online retailers from all nine regions in West Africa.
