What is Nigeria Bloggers Conference (NBC)?

Nigeria bloggers conference is the meet-up between Nigerian Bloggers (home and abroad) which will be held once in a year for the purpose of networking amongst Nigerian bloggers and for the growth of the blogging profession in Nigeria.

The conference will be organized in such a way that some bloggers will be selected to speak in the conference about their challenges and success as unique to them or their blogging niche. There would also be workshops and trainings where some other bloggers will be chosen to practically train newbies in their blogging niche. In addition to this, we will also have companies like Google, Glo, Airtel, MTN, FATE, LBS and so many others to send in their representative to come and give a talk about a product or service they have which will be of immense benefit to Nigeria bloggers and the growth of the blogging profession in Nigeria. The conference will be crowned with an awards nite so as to recognize the input of so many Nigerian bloggers for the growth of the blogging profession in Nigeria.
