Tourism is recognized as an important driver of the local, regional and national economies, and therefore is a central component of the economic ambitions of all local authorities.
As the Tourism industry progressively raises its profile in global economic planning, there is a clear need to ensure that attention is paid to its long-term development potential. The local government sector has traditionally played an important role in supporting tourism development of local areas, particularly as the primary custodian of tourism assets. Further to this role, the local government   contributes in the provision of infrastructure, the development of tourist attractions and experiences, support for festivals and events, and the implementation of tourist promotion plans.
Against this background, Destination Communications Ltd presents LAGOS LOCAL GOVERNMENTS TOURISM MARKET, LLGTM 2022. This MICE and exposition event is designed to add tourism values and sensitize the Local Authorities in Lagos State and to further propel the campaign of Domestic Tourism Promotion across the local government in Lagos. There are 20 Local Governments and 37 Local Government Development Areas in Lagos( LCDAs) totally 57 in all.

It is on record, yet unknown to many that every local Government in Lagos and by extension all the 774 Local Governments in Nigeria have a unique tourism site waiting to be fully explored and exploited.

The LAGOS LOCAL GOVERNMENTS TOURISM MARKET is a uniquely Community- Based Tourism market that will promote and generate economic activities in Lagos State in exceptional ways that practically supports the promotion and implementation of the Lagos State Tourism Plan. Hence, it will connect relevant tourism stakeholders within and outside the country to look inward towards the relevance of local government in the promotion of tourism propagation in Lagos.
