The Mayor of Houston, Sylvester Turner, described the upcoming trade expo organised by Fidelity Bank as the Fidelity International Trade and Creative Connect (FITCC Houston) as “a catalyst to support bilateral trade between Nigeria and Houston; and an opportunity for the Houston community and the diaspora to explore emerging trends, forge new partnerships, and unlock new possibilities.”
The mayor recently released a video statement announcing this. The Mayor Turner emphasised the several FITCC Houston side attractions in the one-minute video clip that our correspondent was able to collect and urged companies to use the expo to grow internationally.
The event is scheduled for Tuesday, 24 and Wednesday, 25th October 2023 at the George R. Brown Convention Center, 1001 Avenida de las Americas, Houston, Texas 77010.
The bank will be hosting exporters, leading businesses, entrepreneurs, investors and regulators operating in the commodity, service, creative, fashion and FinTech sectors in Nigeria and the United States with the view of promoting Nigeria’s non-oil exports and facilitating integrations to global supply-chain networks.
