Flutterwave, partner hosts Trade Fair to support 100 small businesses
Flutterwave, Africa’s leading payments technology company, has announced the return of its trade fair in Nigeria after two successful outings in 2021.
The Flutterwave Trade Fair, in partnership with Pages by Dami, will be supporting 100 small businesses with a physical location where they sell to hundreds of potential walk-in customers, the company said in a release.
The Flutterwave trade fair has historically seen young and vibrant shoppers in Lagos who take up the opportunity of doing their Christmas shopping for themselves, family and friends.
The trade fair provides an opportunity for fun seekers to enjoy their December shopping in a relaxed and controlled atmosphere full of fun activities and discounts. In the past, the trade fair has seen up to a thousand shoppers patronizing over hundred businesses.
It also helps small businesses to take advantage of the end-of-year sales season to grow revenue and their businesses. The physical location of this year’s trade fair would be at Landmark Event Centre, Victoria Island, Lagos, on Sunday, December 11, from10 am.
