Letter from the President
You are welcome to Appoemn – The association of Professional Party Organizer and Event Planners of Nigeria.
The executive team changed on the 1st of January 2021 with a new set of leaders poised to continue to build on the legacy of the past team and take the association to a higher level by setting and emphasizing industry standards. The next two years will be used to do this.
I see an association that will become veritable stakeholders with both our domiciled state and Federal government. We are continuing our engagement with the government to solicit the necessary backing and support needed and to engage for necessary collaboration and partnership.
2020 tagged “The year of Covid-19” has been a challenging year for the whole world and one of the worst hit industry was the Events Industry. We will however arise from the ashes to be better, stronger and more focused as an Association and the members as entrepreneurs.
In the next two years, we will concentrate on:
- Rebuild the morals of our members within the industry.
- Expand our outreach by creating zonal chapters and making them strong.
- Hold trainings, seminars, (virtual physical and hybrid – One of the gains of covid) for industry players both members and non-members on industry standards, need for collaboration health and safety protocols within the industry etc.
- Hold our yearly conference TEIC – The Event Industry Conference
We will continue to grow this association without limits, remain relevant and a reference point.
I enjoin and implore all those practitioners who have not identified with a body or association to do so now more than ever before. It will become increasingly difficult to run a solo ship going forward.
On behalf of the patrons, board of directors and executive team, I say thank you to everyone and welcome to a new post-covid world of opportunity within the Event Industry.
Watch this space 2021/22.
