San Francisco, CA – July 9, 2014 – eZ-Xpo, the global leader in Virtual Collaborative Network Ecosystem and Virtual Expo Marketplace, today it is pleased to announce the world’s 1st Virtual Creative Genius Expo (www.geniusexpo.com) in Lagos, Nigeria through strategic partnership with College People Magazine and with its first Virtual Creative Genius Expo – “Create Your Future – Creative Genius Expo” in late July 2014.
The first kick-off event focuses on helping local young children to develop creativity and learning through fun, games, and contest competition in Nigeria with global educators, experts, and mentors from around the world.
The objective and vision of Creative Genius Expo Marketplace are to offer a global collaborative learning community for young children and adults to unleash their creative genius across all disciplines (i.e. Arts, music, math, science, and business). It will also help everyone connect, collaborate, and learn with mentors and experts in a live, on-demand virtual environment around the world.
“We are excited to partner with eZ-Xpo and eLearningZoom to help jump start local creativity and education in a new fun and exciting contest competition in Nigeria. With today’s high unemployment rate in the young adult segment, we definitely need to think outside the box to create their future career with new practical learning skills,” said Bukola Owo-bello, Co-Founder Nous Communications, the Publisher of College People Magazine.
“The Creative Genius Expo Network is the perfect collaborative learning ecosystem combining the capabilities of social learning, contest competition, virtual expo, and mentoring all-in-one through a single portal,” added Bukola
“Nigeria has surpassed South Africa with GDP $510 billion in 2013 and $190 billion bigger than South Africa’s GDP as the largest economy in Africa. As Mark Mobius, the leading mutual manager from Templeton Emerging Market Fund recently expressed “superbull” in the region, I am also super bullish with the region especially when we have the perfect network ecosystem with both game changing technologies, strategic partner network, and best practices to make that happen,” said Matt Fok, Founder and CEO of eZ-Xpo.
“Through the partnership with College People Magazine and Ultimate Konsult Group, we can help jumpstart local creativity, education, and job creation with exciting contest competition and practical expert learning across all disciplines. With our collaborative network ecosystem across virtual learning, virtual job fair, and virtual expo, we can help bridge all missing links and create a dynamic vibrant talent pool and job creation,” said Fok.
