Members of the Outdoor Advertising Association of Nigeria turned up in their numbers at Benizia Hotel Asaba between Wednesday July 26th and Saturday July 29th for the 32nd Annual General Meeting themed: “Managing Our Business Profitably in a Recession”.

The AGM among other business discussions, was meant to host an election of new officers that would pilot the affairs of the Association in the next two years. But in what could be termed a twist of fate, all the contesting officers who had served in 2015/2017 were returned unopposed.

AN ADDRESS BY THE PRESIDENT AT THE PRESS CONFERENCE PRECEDING THE POSTER AWARDS 2014
