From its captivating cities, towns and villages, amazing attractions, stunning hotels and resorts, endless restaurants and clubs, unique cuisine, arts and culture; Nigeria has a lot to offer.
AND WE’D LIKE TO PERSONALLY INVITE YOU TO JOIN US.
Land and Lounge in Lagos
Arrive in Lagos and feel the pulse of the city as soon as you touch down. You'll be greeted by a driver who will transport you to a boutique hotel in Lagos. Join the rest of the guests by the pool over some drinks and Naija delights.
Christmas Day: Chop & Chill
First, we will begin the day with a scrumptious brunch at the famed TeaRoom Lagos, and then head over to Moist Beach Resort for a day filled with sun and fun. In the evening, we will go back to the hotel to get refreshed to get ready for the All Black Everything (ABE) party.
Leisure & Tour
We got you covered in leisure, fun, and tour. We will head to some of key landmarks in Lagos: Nike's Art Gallery, Lekki Conservation Centre, Arts Market, and more.
3rd Annual Startup Roundtable
Join us to hear top C –suite entrepreneurs in Nigeria answer questions like:
How do you acquire new customers & scale a brand while operating without a physical footprint?
How do you build an organization from the ground up?
What are the trade-offs you make when building a brand on a shoestring budget?
What are the personal and professional challenges entrepreneurs face?
What does it take to succeed?
Fireside Chat: Leaders who are Committed to Africa as We are
During 3 nights of our stay, we’ll have a speaker join us at the hotel or over dinner to provide significant educational and professional enrichment that is a natural complement to TA.
The objective of the series is two-fold. The series builds and strengthens the relationship between ThinkAfrica participants and Africa’s leaders of tomorrow and the series offers speakers an opportunity to discuss their personal views on the challenges inherent in leading organizations and enacting change in an increasingly interconnected world. It brings leaders who are committed to Africa as we are to share their insights on current business issues and corporate strategies
for the CULTURE
Culture is big to us. In order to know where you’re going, you must know where you come from. Our trips to different countries are to get us acclimated to our roots, and also to know the value Africa holds and how we can contribute to the economy.
As we embark to Nigeria in 2017, we’ll attend a naming ceremony, learn the history of Nigeria through art and dance, take a Trip to Ife where they say life originated from, attend a Landmark tour, learn how to prepare the native dishes, and how to dance as the locals.
