BRIEF ON CONFERENCE VENUE: Ibadan is the capital city of Oyo state, Nigeria, located on seven hills (average elevation 700 feet (200 metres) 100 miles (160 km) from the
Atlantic coast. It is the nation's second largest city, after Lagos.
Ibadan is an important commercial centre. Virtually every street and corner in the traditional core and the inner suburbs of the city is a market square or stall. Within the
city there are two eight-day periodic markets—Ibuko (Bode) and Oje—and many daily markets. The largest daily market stretches in a belt from the railway station in the
west to the centre of the city and is Ibadan's commercial core.
Some local crafts still flourish. These include weaving, spinning and dyeing, pottery making, and blacksmithing. The adire (“tie-dye”) cloth dyed locally in large pots of
indigo is popular. The small businesses in the city engage in corn milling, leather working, wood and steel furniture making, printing, photography, hotel management, and
motor and other repairing. There are, however, few modern manufacturing industries.
Ibadan is well served by roads. The city has a fleet of privately owned taxicabs and minibuses, and regular bus services are operated within the city and its suburbs.
The University of Ibadan and a technical institute are located in the city, and there are many specialized institutions. The university library maintains the largest collection of books in the country. There is also a branch of the National Archives on the university campus.
Of the city's six parks, the most important is Agodi Garden. There are also zoological and botanical gardens, two main stadiums, and a large number of athletic facilities open to
