The 2018 edition of NDAMA will be dedicated to recognizing the outstanding contributions of the private sector in promoting sustainable development and economic growth in the region. Our key focus for 2018 would be promoting enterprise development and regional economic growth; a private sector approach.


The event focuses on strong thematic areas of concern in the Niger Delta region. These areas will be handled by our panel of discussants which include but not limited to the following:

  • How can investment drive diversification and inclusive growth?
  • How can innovations in transportation be developed for investment and entrepreneurial growth?
  • How can the economic prospective of travel and tourism become a driver of growth?
  • How can global, regional and local partnerships be enhanced to strengthen the region’s growth path?
  • How are innovative public-private partnerships accelerating investments in the region?
  • What are the requirements to build a Prosperous Region?
  • How are youths shaping the future development path for the region?
  • How can the regions’ growth plans be more comprehensive and create jobs?
  • How can the region ensure its investments, infrastructure and growth are resilient to climate change?


The theme will be properly x-rayed by a group of economic experts and industry leaders with exceptional experience in business growth model and entrepreneurship. They will present papers and also share personal and group experiences which will help participants in thriving in the global economy. Participants will be allowed to engage directly with speakers through a Q & A session.

This interactive session provides an in-depth analysis of business growth models and best practices of new and emerging development across various industries. As the custom is, another set of change makers will be unveiled; notable individuals and corporate organizations contributing to the economic growth and political stability of the region will be recognized and awarded.

The recipients will be acknowledged for their achievements and recognized as the elite of their industry earning a place amongst a distinguished group by having their products, projects, initiatives, contributions and achievements recognized on a prominent and far-reaching scale.


Together with our distinguished partners, we have successfully held eight editions with the mission of charting the course for sustainable development and setting the benchmark for excellence in the Niger Delta. These events have succeeded in showcasing the Niger Delta as an investor friendly destination as well as promoting our rich socio-cultural heritage.

It is pertinent to note that our vision is to build a sustainable platform that will support the process of making Nigeria a leading light and benchmark for excellence and professionalism in the nearest future.
