The Manufacturers Association of Nigeria (MAN), has vacated its partnership in the organization of the Annual Nigeria Manufacturing Expo/Manufacturing for African Development (NME/mPAD).
The events is organized by Clarion Events West Africa, a South African Company.
This decision is sequel to the closure of its partner’s (Clarion Events West Africa) business interest in Nigeria which led to the laying off its staff operating in Lagos.
Consequently, MAN ceases to be part of any Expo being organized by Clarion Events West Africa, and has advised the public to be wary of any individual or group of persons parading themselves as organizers of Nigeria Manufacturing Equipment Expo in partnership with MAN.
The MAN also put its members on notice of the new development.
“We wish to express our deep appreciation to the exhibitors (both Local and International), the general public and our media partners who have supported the Association in the organization of the previous four editions of NME/mPAD.
Please be informed that MAN is planning its sole International Equipment Manufacturing Expo and the details will be communicated in due course, Segun Ajayi-Kadir, Director General of MAN said.
