Bolton White Group, a prominent name in Nigeria’s thriving hospitality industry, has embarked on a groundbreaking project in Abuja: the construction of a state-of-the-art convention centre with a capacity of 1000 seats.
According to businessday.ng, this ambitious endeavor is set to redefine the landscape of tourism in Nigeria and elevate the standards of the country’s hospitality industry.
Kingsley Obiukwu, the Executive Director of Bolton White Group, shared the group’s vision for this new convention centre during a recent press conference in Abuja. He emphasized that this venture underscores the group’s unwavering commitment to setting new benchmarks in Nigeria’s hospitality sector.
The convention centre, a subsidiary project by Bolton White Group, aspires to serve as a platform for showcasing Nigeria’s rich culture, art, and traditions to a global audience. It aims to enhance the art of hosting people, providing a world-class venue for a wide range of events.
Obiukwu stated, “We believe that such a contemporary conference centre like the one we are developing can draw a sizable number of delegates, visitors, and business travelers from all over the world. As more visitors arrive in Nigeria to participate in conferences, conventions, and events held at the centre, the tourism sector will experience growth.”
This cutting-edge convention centre is expected to attract a diverse array of meetings, incentives, conferences, and exhibitions (MICE), including international conferences and trade shows. Not only will it provide a platform for global interactions, but it will also open up new opportunities for local suppliers, event organizers, and merchants.
The project is set to be completed in the third quarter of 2024, with Obiukwu highlighting that it will create over 500 jobs for Nigerians, contributing to employment opportunities in the region.
Obiukwu further revealed that the convention centre’s design was conceptualized by some of Nigeria’s finest architects, boasting a contemporary aesthetic and state-of-the-art facilities capable of hosting a wide spectrum of events.
Bolton White Group’s innovative convention centre project holds the promise of not only redefining the hospitality industry in Nigeria but also significantly boosting tourism in Abuja, inviting both local and international visitors to experience the vibrant culture and dynamic atmosphere of the nation’s capital
