The Second edition of Nigeria Beer Festival billed to hold from
September 25 to October I, 2018 has been shifted forward by one
month and will now begin on October 25 to October 31, 2018.

Organisers of the event, On and One Events (001) Limited, explained
that the postponement is to allow the rain to subside and guarantee a
more conducive environment for participants during the festival.
Following an assessment by the Nigeria Hydrological Services Agency
(NHSA) showing that all indices of flood disaster were manifesting in
many states, the Federal Government had warned that flood was
imminent and hence the decision to raise the alarm.

Akinola Oluwaleimu, General Manager of 001 noted that the warning
was timely considering the volume and days of rainfall especially in
Lagos of recent. He added that the shift became expedient in the
interest of the exhibitors, participants and the thousands of fun-seeking
Lagosians who are looking forward to the entertainment and the
tourism potentials of the Beer festival.

“All the stakeholders are in agreement on the need for this shift for
better safety, better planning and better result. The festival is an
outdoor event and we must take note of the weather and the warning
from the experts,” Oluwaleimu said.

He retereitated that the Lagos State government, which is passionate
about tourism, is still committed to providing massive institutional
support, particularly security, emergency response and related logistics
for the event which will enrol Nigeria into the league of Beer Festivals
around the world and boost the country’s tourism opportunities.

The event, which promises to propagate responsible drinking among
drinking-age (which is 18 years and above) consumers at all its touch
points, will be held at the Waterfront Bar Beach grounds, Eko Atlantic
to give it a carnival atmosphere.
