ACE Awards

African Creative Exhibition and Awards (ACE Awards) aims to laud the creative works of Nigerians (Africans), which makes open competition affordable and accessible. In turn, this will encourage more businesses to look inwards and create more globally acceptable brands. This initiative is powered by Bellafricana.

Bellafricana is an initiative with a focus on Made-in-Nigeria (Africa) Non-oil products development where customers and suppliers engage and transact to bridge the buyer-seller gap and create a wider outreach for Nigerian (African) products locally & globally.

Micro, small and medium-size businesses nationwide produce a great deal of outstanding products, yet these creative business owners aren’t encouraged to innovate and create more.

Bellafricana has enabled creative businesses a platform to receive the recognition they have long deserved. This Annual African Creative Exhibition and Award (termed ACE Awards) competition endorsed by the Nigerian Export Promotion Council (NEPC), Nigerian-British Chamber of Commerce (NBCC), Nigerian-American Chamber of Commerce (NACC), Lagos Chamber of Commerce and Industry (LCCI), Nigeria-Britain Association, will hereby offer participants a unique opportunity to showcase their talents and to have their work judged by consumers and experts.

You must agree with us that Nigeria is an import driven nation and if we are looking to diversify and become an export driven nation, it starts from MSMEs. Starting with Nigeria and taking it one African Country at a time.

ACE Awards is an important annual occurrence aimed at attracting an audience that include Captains of Industry, Investors, Upwardly Mobile Youths, Marketers, Trade Delegations & Missions, Procurement Officers, Brand And Business Managers, Art Lovers, Governmental Representatives And Key Decision Makers.

The event is for enterprising Nigerian (African) MSMEs seeking wider access to both internal markets and International markets and investors seeking joint-venture partners.
