Speaking at the event, the Sales Territory Manager, VConnect Nigeria Limited, Mr. Wale Onibudo, disclosed that the recent expansion of VConnect to Abuja was in line with the company’s mission to give businesses everywhere in Nigeria the opportunity to partake of the numerous benefits associated with getting listed on the website .
“VConnect is constantly repositioning its marketing strategies and quality of service with a view to giving businesses the opportunity and awareness required to increase their profitability. The success of a business is tied to the level of awareness created around the business and any business listed on the Vconnect directory would enjoy numerous requests from other parts of the country. We want businesses in other parts of the country to have a feel of what our Lagos clientele have been experiencing”, he explained.
Mr. Onibudo noted that the company had shown its passion for the growth of entrepreneurs in Nigeria, which has paid off with the conferment the Nigerian Event Awards, TNEA 2012, in recognition of the depth and width of the content available on the VConnect website.
