Organised by a team of London based Nigerian Event Organisers, the annual awards dinner will hold at the Hilton Hotel Canary Wharf in London’s Docklands..

the huge and fast growing Nigerian events industry in the UK, will see the organisers
presenting awards in 15 categories including a Special Recognition
Award to an industry personality who has showed longevity and great commitment to the industry.
Co founded by Jummy “BaronessJ” Ariyo and Lady Vanessa Oluwole say “ The NEA UK
was also founded to celebrate and reward the talents, skills and professionalism of the men and women who work hard behind the scenes to produce the several private, social, corporate or public events that Nigerians in the UK are well known for.
According to the founders, “We discovered there was a need for greater cohesion among
Nigerian events practitioners as well as forming strategic alliances in order to raise the
standard of performance and bring credibility and quality to the UK Nigerian events industry.
This has been one of the great achievements of the NEA UK since it was launched 5 years
ago. The event served as a point of meeting and networking for industry practioners from all over London and the UK many who have now become firm partners and collaborators.
Standards have increased hugely in the industry and many NEA UK award winners have seen great impacts on their businesses including some of our colleagues being contracted for jobs abroad.
Participants at the NEA include marketing and promoting agencies, MCs, DJs, Venue decorators, Live Band Performers and event planners within the Nigerian diaspora community in the UK.

permanent fixture in the Nigerian-UK social calendar drawing attendees from both within and outside of London.
The organisers of the NEA UK will also be launching the association for Nigerian Events Industry professionals in the United Kingdom.
