NIMAREX 2015: Event holds April 27 to April 29

The 2015 edition of the annual Nigeria Maritime Expo (NIMAREX) has been rescheduled  from its initial March 29 to April 1, to  now hold from April 27 to April 29.

The Planning Committee in a statement said it arrived at the new date after deliberations at a meeting with key members in attendance.

Chairman of the Planing Committee, Mr Ayorinde Adedoyin, gave the assurance that plans for the exhibition remained at top gear, the statement read.

According to Ayorinde, the shift in the nation's general election from February to March necessitated the shift in date for Nigeria's biggest maritime exhibition.

"The Planning Committee have deliberated and arrived at the new date of April 27 to April 29 for the 2015 NIMAREX. 

"This shift is necessitated by the shift in the date for the general elections in Nigeria," he said.

Ayorinde noted that the shift in date for NIMAREX 2015 would allow the Planning Committee perfect all logistics arrangements to give prospective participants every support they would need for the period.
"The time will enable the committee perfect all logistics arrangements for those being expected," he said.

The Chairman also disclosed that several business concerns; local and international companies, had indicated their interests to attend the three-day event.

He reiterated that "trade and economic regeneration" remained the focus for NIMAREX 2015.
