[EVENT] THE NIGERIAN ENTERTAINMENT CONFERENCE

NET Newspapers LTD, publishers of Nigerian Entertainment Today have announced the inauguration of an annual umbrella conference for the Nigerian entertainment industry.
The conference, which will debut on Friday April 26, 2013, ‘is an invaluable initiative needed at this critical time in our industry, to steer the different sectors and associated elements, in the appropriate direction’, according to NET founder Ayeni Adekunle.
Nigerian Entertainment Conference, Ayeni says, will cover all the sectors associated with the entertainment industry. These include Fashion, Music, Movies/Films, and Media. Others are Sports, Arts, IT, Comedy and Events.
The conversation has been on for years, conversations about the way forward for the art and business of entertainment in Nigeria. And, since NET was established three years ago, we’ve been at the forefront of efforts to get the conversation going.  Now, it’s time to bring everyone together so we can begin an active process of re-organisation.

NET will be working with partners in the media, government, corporates, music, movies and elsewhere to make sure the conference delivers its promise.

The Theme of the conference is ‘Building the Industry of our Dreams’.
