I don visit many event centres for Osogbo and with wetin I see today, all of dem join no reach Aurora for any level – anonymous
About a month ago, I was at the popular Bics Garden and Boat Club for an event – Barfest19 and that was officially my first “event writeup” on this blog. I recently attended a conference at Aurora Conference Centre which was so fantastic and I just had to write!
Admittedly, the conference was entirely worth my time, themed “Mitigating Effects of Cybercrime: Roles of Telecom Consumers” and organised by Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC). It had in attendance several dignitaries such as NCC Officials, Telecom Representatives, Security Operatives, Traditional Rulers and Iyalojas.
WHY AURORA MAY BE THE BEST EVENT CENTRE IN OSOGBO
Aurora is located in the capital city of Osun state which is a focal point for major activities. It is at Plot 6, Block IXA, GRA, After NNPC Mega Station, Adjacent Dangote Cement Depot, Ring Road, Osogbo, Osun.
The Event Centre is easily identifiable, it stands out from environs and sits next to a tarred road which makes journeying hitchfree for commuters.
As an Architecture Student, I was impressed by the allure of Aurora Conference Centre. From its color scheme, landscape, site layout to lighting, Aurora is really an Osogbo beauty.
The Public Building is also equipped with ample parking spaces, impeccable hall acoustics, generous fenestration and disable friendly services.
Aurora Conference Centre showcases a good mix of vegetation ranging from flowers, trees and crawling grasses. This adds a unique sense of calm to the events hub.
With Personalities like 2Baba, Chief Justice of Osun and Fmr. Governor Aregbesola as their clientele, Aurora barely takes chances with security measures. The Centre is gated and security officials work around the clock.
Also, CCTV cameras strategically positioned provide realtime information on activities.
5. SERENE ENVIRONMENT
Auroras’ reasonable setback from the road minimises vehicular disturbance and its ambiance is achieved by a combination of interior decor and flexibility.
Trust me, if you want to host your friends without worry or anxiety, Aurora Conference Centre is definitely one of those unruffled places.
Aurora Conference Centre operates on Mondays to Fridays 8am to 6pm and on Saturdays 9am to 3pm. It’s suitability for all kinds of events has earned it a chance to accommodate upscale events like Bankers Commitee Meeting, Vote Not Fight by 2Baba and Governor Aregbesola’s Birthday.
So what makes Aurora special in Osogboland?

EXCERPTS FROM THE CONFERENCE
Not that this really matters but it may be unfair if I don’t mention any pointers from the conference especially for those interested.
- Cybercrime is a menace to any society. In Nigeria, perpetrators are commonly called “Yahoo Boys.” They prey on vulnerable persons through hacking, online scam, internet fraud and hate speech.
- Ransomware is a type of malware from cryptovirology that threatens to publish the victim’s data or perpetually block access to it unless a ransom is paid.
- At certain interval, change passwords on your social media and online banking accounts. Never use the same for everything.
- Beware! Fake credit alerts are on the rise. Confirm delicate transactions with your Banker.
- Contrary to popular believe Telecommunication Masts are not harmful to human health.
The conference was an innovative one by NCC, there was an interactive section where the audience asked questions and after an impactful day, we finished few minutes to 3pm and had refreshments.
