“Thousands of visitors including local and international traders will come, sight, sell and buy goods at a discounted rate. In addition to this unfettered access to end buyers, companies will have the opportunity to meet with key decision makers in the industry,” Jewelries stated.
They urge Lagos residents to utilize the opportunity and shop for the festive season.
