Fidelity Bank Plc has announced the upcoming second edition of the Fidelity International Trade and Creative Connect, known as FITCC Houston, which is scheduled to take place in Houston, Texas, USA.

The international expo is slated for October 24th and 25th, 2023, and will be held at the prestigious George R. Brown Convention Center, located at 1001 Avenida de las Americas.

This event follows the inaugural edition held in London last November, which saw the closure of deals worth over $200 million.

FITCC Houston aims to continue the tradition of supporting Nigeria’s non-oil exports and fostering integration into global supply chain networks.

Nneka Onyeali-Ikpe, the Managing Director/Chief Executive Officer of Fidelity Bank Plc, emphasized the bank’s commitment to export trade and its dedication to enhancing the sector.

She stated, “Fidelity Bank is very much invested in supporting export trade and has consistently demonstrated this by the interventions and innovations that we bring to the space.

Beyond the instrument of financing, some of our key interventions in the space revolve around business management capacity development with initiatives like the export management program, which we host in partnership with the Lagos Business School and the Nigerian Export Promotion Council, and market access development initiatives like FITCC.”

The FITCC Houston event will culminate with a gala dinner on October 25, 2023, featuring award-winning Nigerian hip-hop star Kcee and other entertainers.
