A first online trade exhibition in the country that would promote innovations by local inventors, scholars and entrepreneurs would be unveiled in May.
Chief executive, Best Hope Services (BHS),Olu Adenodi, made this disclosure in Lagos this week.
Adenodi said the online trade fair would allow exhibitors to showcase their products to the world without having to hire an exhibition ground.
According to him, the e-fair would also allow visitors the convenience of participating in the trade exhibition without leaving the comfort of their homes or offices.
“We observed that most innovations in our tertiary institutions will only be heard of for a while but would not be developed, this medium allows for the promotion of such,” he said.
“We are creating an opportunity of translating what is obtainable only on land or terrestrial into the air or outer space, taking full advantage of technology and utilising the Internet to the fullest.”
Also speaking, the originator of the e-Fair, Prof. Joseph Mba said that the online expo would have huge positive impact on national development.
According to him, Nigeria and Africa’s academic researchers, inventors and problem solvers would be inspired and motivated to creativity and innovations with this idea.
Mba said the e-fair would cover four strategic areas: e-fair expo, e-fair connect, e-fair trade and e-fair events with the aim to have an online trade fair.
“The timetable had been drawn for different sectors like: technology, automobiles, electronics- home and office durable consumables.”
