General Information about Lagos, Nigeria, for Meeting Planners
Here’s some general information that might be of help to the Lagos convention planner: Lagos is a rapidly growing city in Nigeria, indeed, the seventh-fastest growing in the whole world. An important African port city, it is blessed by plenty of water from the Gulf of Guinea on its southern edge to the Lagos Lagoon and its many tributaries running through and around the town. Bustling and crowded, Lagos is currently the home of some eight million citizens. It’s a fascinating place to visit, but watch for intermittent travel and security alerts.

Lagos Food Choices for Convention Attendees
Set aside convention time to enjoy some of the finest restaurants in Lagos. For international menus, you can do no better than Bar Campione, especially if you love a good martini along with your excellent meal. They specialize in Italian cuisine, but offer a varied selection. The Sherlaton Indian Restaurant is pricey but offers fabulous Indian food, reportedly the best in Lagos. Try the Capsicum Masala. Yellow Chili puts out down-home African dishes, such as the very yellow Jollof Rice. International dishes are also on this extensive menu.
Lagos Attractions for Conference Delegates
Going to Lagos for a convention or another type of business meeting? Some of the sights to see are likely to move you to the core, and all will leave you with a better understanding of this unique culture, its history and society. Start with the Black Heritage Museum in Badagry, across the water. This is the top attraction in Lagos, and should be required visiting for every tourist in Nigeria. The National Museum is in the southeast quadrant of Lagos, across from Victoria Island. Then there’s the popular Lekki Market, which is on the island itself and well worth the trip.
