ALAGHODARO 2016......... The Mother of all Conferences Beckons

It is no longer news that the ancient city of Benin would be hosting this year’s South-South and South East Conference, tagged ALAGHODARO 2016 from June 16th-19th, 2016, what is perhaps news is that JCI Benin Metro, hosts, are packaging a never been experienced conference that promises to be educating, entertaining and a fertile ground to network due largely to the successful back 2 back hits recorded with the Leadership Impact and Back 2 School projects in year 2015.  This year’s conference is unique in a number of ways. Its theme, SUSTAINABLE ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT; TRANSFORMING NIGERIA’S ECONOMY FROM CONSUMPTION TO PRODUCTION is very apt and coming at a time when our nation is in dire need of diversification from being an import oriented economy to a productive one capable of producing and meeting its needs. The import of the conference tag, Alaghodaro, a Bini word that means “let’s move forward’’ should not be lost on us. The time is now for us as a nation to move forward economically and in all facets of our nationhood, to achieve this objective, our generation needs to take charge and play more active roles in the economic affairs of this great country.  The South-South and South East Conference aims to provide quality business trainings and networking opportunities with top business players that will help be of great advantage to aspiring business owners among us.  While putting in place plans and arrangements to host a successful conference, we are very much unmindful of the social aspect which reminds one of this age-long saying that all work and no play, they say makes jack a dull boy, we promise all conference delegates the best of the Benin cultural displays, warm hospitality and fantastic side attractions which will linger for a very long time in your memories.
