The highly-anticipated event – organised by Montgomery West Africa, headed by Tori Abiola and sponsored by SPICE TV, amongst others – aims to provide women with an amazing opportunity to engage with top Nigerian entrepreneurs and celebrate and share stories of success, with its yearly event noting and encouraging women’s contributions within West African economies.

Themed “Vision to Reality” and covering manufacturing, finance and investiment, technology, digital media and more, the festival will also include a variety of exhibitors, displaying their goods and sharing their entrepreneurial journey, with key discussions on “West Africa’s X-factor” (taking place on Day 1) simply not to be missed.

We at SPICE suggest anyone hoping to join in with tomorrow and Friday’s WOWe Festival find out more on the event asap, here.
