The 2019 edition of the Connect Nigeria Business Fair held on the 26th and 27th of April, 2019. As usual, Africa’s largest, much anticipated Business Fair did not disappoint. Rather, it met and exceeded the expectations of participants. The organizers of the fair understood that food is a powerful vehicle for communication. Thus, while the attendees listened and benefited from the entrepreneurial experiences of business executives and clinched deals at the networking sessions, top food vendors set up shop at the exhibitors’ stand. The attendees were wooed to the food stands by the inviting aromas emanating from there. Some of the food exhibitors who came, saw and conquered at the fair include:

Oge’s Kitchen

This restaurant has local and international chefs at their disposal and has built a reputation for the delivery of exceptional service for functions of any size. At the Connect Nigeria Business Fair 2019, attendees enjoyed mouth-watering delicacies from Oge’s Kitchen.

Vernacular Buka

More often than not, our lives are hectic. The pressure at work can be frantic at times. The Lagos traffic can be crazy. Sometimes too, we’re so tired that the mere thought of shopping and cooking is daunting. At times like this, it pays to remember that the Vernacular Buka is just a phone call away. This restaurant specializes in the creation of delicious Nigerian meals. They are pretty affordable too as they have several options that allow you to enjoy correct homemade delicacies within your price range. The Vernacular Buka came fully prepared for the Connect Nigeria Business Fair. They catered to thousands of people who came for the fair.

In conclusion, the Connect Nigeria Business Fair 2019 was a huge success. Food exhibitors at the fair was part of its success story, for as Virginia Woolf rightly noted, one cannot think well, love well, sleep well, if one has not dined well.
