It is richly endowed with ecological and cultural resources, which are of universal recognition from threads of history, diversity, legend and conquest.

With Nigeria’s booming tourism industry, its development and growth must meet international standards, awareness must be created, other cultures must be made sufficiently known not only because the world has become a global village but because people appreciate what they understand, according to Princess Asha Okojie-Osazuwa, one of the organizers of FACE.

Okojie-Osazuwa disclosed that the platform will create the environment to network, do business and capitalize on the fast growing hospitality and tourism sector in Nigeria. She said that there will be star-studded events, live performances from local and international artistes, entertainers, celebrity guests, and a movie premier, including; cultural dance groups, beauty contest pageantry, and activities that promise to give the audience a fulfilling weekend.
