This conference is not just a forum for academics to rob minds, criticize and improve each other’s work. The goal of this conference is to create a unique meeting place where ideas meet opportunities, innovators meet investors and policymakers get firsthand interactions with those who are affected by their policies so that they can get direct feedback on how policies are affecting businesses both in the local and global communities.
Therefore, the passion for this conference is to halt the disconnect between academia and industry and create an interactive setting for ideas across the divide to mesh to generate the momentum that drives the productive adaption of the business landscape to disruptive times.
From the initial feedback we are already getting, we are confident that our strategies for this conference will lead to the achievement of the stated goal. For one, we are inviting innovators across all fields to exhibit their inventions, products, and ideas to potential investors and policymakers. We are also inviting the best minds in academia and industry to contribute their findings, theories, and ideas to the ULBS Journal of Business and Management which will be published both in print and online at the time of the conference. And very importantly, our key speakers are drawn from the finest in academia and the heavyweights from industry, and among policymakers. We truly expect that this conference will set a new high standard in the collaboration between academia and industry in Nigeria and possibly across Africa and will become a conference to reference.
The conference is going to be a hybrid of physical and virtual participation and we expect participants from all over the world.
From the Welcome Reception to Workshops, you’ll be able to meet other business professionals in casual settings. Chat about your challenges, hear different perspectives, and introduce yourself to the international community!
