As part of measures to grow this sector, the Lagos State government held its first ever Lagos State Tourism Summit that took place at Eko Hotel and Suites, Victoria Island on April 16. It was also an opportunity to showcase Lagos State rich heritage and culture.

The summit which was tagged "Destination Lagos: Towards A Sustainable Tourism- Driven Economy", had the Lagos State Governor , Mr Akinwumi Ambode deliver a special message with focus on developing a masterplan to make Lagos a mega city-state which is culturally attractive and functional.
