As part of effort to achieve the knowledge economy in Nigeria, the World Creative Conference and Awards has been scheduled to hold in the country in 2018. The event according to organisers will be held in the third quarter of 2018.
The World Creative Conference (WCC) is to celebrate the Creative industry towards realising a global success in the effort to create a knowledge economy globally.
According to the President of the awards Mr. Kola King, the WCC is for the Creative industry. “Nigeria has relied for too long on Oil. It is one of the reasons why we are here in recession.
We need to diversify to make the economy buoyant. This is why we are bringing together the world under one umbrella to recognize the stakeholders in the creative world.”
The event is already gathering momentum as corporate bodies have started throwing weight behind it. Organisers reveal that Aquatic Jungle Entertainment owned by Capt Mathew Ekehinde and his celebrity wife, Omotola Jalade Ekehinde is a partner. The likes of Wikky Entertainment and Islanders Magazine have also showed interests in the event.
Among the important personalities that have also expressed interests in the WCC 2018 is Mr. Dapo Aruwajoye a politician and Special Adviser to the Ondo state governor. The Creative industry has been described as the next Oil in the world.
