Pink Matters As ‘The Event Show’ Debuts in Calabar

The Event Show is an annual show put together by Tres Bien Events, an upscale Event Management Company based in Port-Harcourt which provides a platform for professionals, manufacturers and suppliers in the event industry to display and exhibit their products and services.

Much more than a ‘Show,’ it features product exhibition, mentoring sessions, seminars/ workshops and a runway parade, all designed to strengthen the event industry and to equip individuals interested in starting and building businesses in the event industry with the right tools while showcasing the potentials of the sector.

The First Event Show was in 2011 at The Civic Centre, Moscow road, Port Harcourt with an attendance of over 1000 people and 35 vendors.

Guests and speakers at the first edition were; Hilda Dokubo, Omolara Akande, the Tinsel

crew: Damilola Adegbite, Ihuoma Ejiofor, Gideon Okeke and Gbenro Ajibade. Six [6] designers including Mai Atafos, Akpos Okudu and Zalima graced the runway.

In the second year, The Event Show partnered with Qrious Africa (now Geohns Consulting) on board. The guest list also got a boost with the likes of; Victor Olaotan (Fred Ade –Williams), Tomi Odunsi (Shalewa), Chris Atoh (Kwame) and Alex Ekubo adding to the initial Tinsel crew of Ihuoma Ejiofor (Bimpe) and Gbenro Ajibade (Surji). The Event was hosted by Uti Nwachukwu with Casey of Cool fm Port Harcourt.

The third edition of The Event Show was at the Aztech Arcum with more A-list guests, including ace broadcaster Adesuwa Onyenokwe, renowned photographer Ade plumptre, outstanding life coach Jerome Onipede, Brand and PR veteran Julia Oku-Jacks and Funke Bucknor-Obruthe.

It was hosted by Compere, MC and TV presenter Andre Blaze and Candy of Cool FM Port-Harcourt.

2014 experienced a more continental media partnership, with Ebony Life TV, 53 Extra, Spice TV, Thisday Lifestyle Magazine and Vanguard Allure magazine covering the event. Speakers included renowned Photographer, Kelechi Amadi-Obi, Yibo Koko of Yibs Ensemblre, Mary Jane Ohobu of Zaron, Reigner Davies of Portrait Media and Perez Tigidam of the Arden and Newton Brand Management Company. It was hosted by Denrele Edun and Jennifer of Jenethics.
