WHERE & WHEN?

OPUVIA FAIR is dedicated to helping international education and career institutions recruit prospective students and skilled professionals from Abuja.

The Abuja International Education and Career Fair October 2019 will take place at the Sheraton Abuja Hotel in Abuja. The fair is a one-day event which will attract a large pool of students and skilled professionals by giving them several options to accommodate different prices, applications, locations, courses and work requirements.

Students and Skilled professionals are encouraged to come with all necessary documents so they can apply for studies and job positions on the spot.

Abuja is the capital city of Nigeria located at the centre of the country within the Federal Capital Territory(FCT).

According to the 2006 census, the city of Abuja had a population of 776,298, making it one of the ten most populated cities in Nigeria. The city’s dense population makes it a favourite for educational and business institutions.

The United Nations reports that Abuja grew by 139.7% between 2000 and 2010, making it the fastest growing city in the world. For education service providers and career recruiters, this shows that Abuja is a promising market with many opportunities to exploit.

Nigeria is the most populated country in Africa, with approximately double the population of both Ethiopia and Egypt. This makes it a rich source of human resource.

Demographically the country is young and growing quickly, with 63 percent of the population under the age of 24. Clearly, few other African countries promise better educational and career possibilities. A young and growing market like this has attracted millions of investors in the academic and career industries.    

Each year, Nigeria sends out some of the best trained graduates from her universities, colleges and other higher institutions. But there are no jobs made available to match this output. Consequently, high unemployment among university graduates remains a problem. Luckily this problem for Nigeria’s government is an opportunity for employers from around the world to get fresh minds and determined young people to join their teams.

Set 1 km from the Abuja National Mosque, this contemporary hotel is also 5 km from Millennium Park and 9 km from Aso Villa, the residence of the Nigerian President. 

Warm rooms (some with balconies) feature Wi-Fi (fee), satellite TV and en suite bathrooms. Upgraded rooms add minibars, and access to a lounge with free breakfast and Wi-Fi. Suites add dining and living areas, some offer kitchenettes. Room service is available.

There are 4 restaurants, including a steakhouse grill, and an eatery serving BBQ on a poolside terrace. Other amenities include a lobby bar, an outdoor pool, and a fitness centre with a sauna and sports courts.
