Hans-Peter Hormann, General Manager, Flexofit, comments
“The seminar was a chance for us to present our offer to the Nigerian industry. We received a very warm welcome and the atmosphere in the seminar was exciting and vibrant – especially the forum around the development of the packaging industry in Nigeria got high engagements and delivered huge values for our participants. We also saw a lot of networking around the presentations which achieved fruitful interaction. We are looking forward to our upcoming Flexofit Seminars in Ghana, Kenya, South Africa and Mauritius and expect a similar successful outcome for all parties involved.”
