The first ever Nigerian Event Awards (TNEA) organized by Go2gurl Ltd, held on Sunday 8 May, 2011 at The Grandeur, Oregun, Lagos. The event was a unique opportunity to celebrate the burgeoning Nigerian events industry, as well as strengthen partnerships and strategic alliances within it.
The event kicked off with a mini exhibition at 2pm, while the awards show began much later in the evening. In attendance were such prominent Nigerians as Mr Jimi Agbaje, Tara Fela Durotoye, Matilda Kerry and more.
The Future Awards 2010 was nominated for two (2) categories, out of which, it won the biggest award of the night – The Event of the Year!
