Lagos traffic hawkers are many things to many people: For some, they bring the market and products closer to consumers, an epitome of convenience. Others view them as nuisance who shouldn t be on the road. Some say they constitute road hazards, treading dangerously on the path of death. The Lagos State Government on the other hand, tolerates them for the sake of public opinion, but is genuinely concerned that they constitute an eyesore in relation to the kind of squeaky clean and modern image they want for the city.

The Lagos Go-Slow Economy: What Research & Data Can Tell Us About Trade & Opportunities will unpack the Lagos Go-Slow Economy. What do data from research and insights reveal as the real story and narrative in this vibrant yet controversial economy?

This discussion will share lessons from the go-slow economy on how brands can get closer to consumers and in the process help put people to work.
