Lagos Comic Con
The event features a central stage for exhibition/sales, keynotes and panels, multiple rooms for workshops, master classes and presentations, and an area dedicated to co-working, networking and interactive installations.

Also there are lots of competitions and movie screenings that make the event fun to be at. The Creative industry has emerged as one of the world’s most dynamic economic sectors. Available data shows that the creative industry has facilitated cultural, social and economic development in most developed economies.

As Nigeria tries to diversify her economy and move away from its over dependence on oil, the creative industry can play a role in this process with the government fully not understanding the potential of Nigeria’s creative industry.  Our goal this year is to bring a correlation between Nigeria's Creative industry and the growth in its economy.
