The NBA Annual General Conference (AGC) has over the years been known to be the largest gathering of lawyers anywhere in the world. This year’s conference, themed “Bold Transitions”, is slated for 19th to 26th August, 2022. The Technical Committee on Conference Planning (TCCP), led by Tobenna Erojikwe as Chairman, has promised to deliver a legacy conference that sets a standard that will become a benchmark for subsequent NBA conferences.
In keeping with this promise, the TCCP has chosen Eko Atlantic, an ambitious new city on the edge of Victoria Island, the financial centre of the metropolis renowned for its beach resorts, boutiques and nightlife, as the host of most of the conference events.
