Africa Oil Week (AOW), one of the leading oil and gas show for Africa is scheduled to host its 27th edition in Dubai from 8-11 November 2021 at Madinat Jumeirah
Owing to the organisers’ emphasis on the safety and wellbeing of attendees, the event will be held for the first and only time in the Emirate.
Despite the temporary change in location from Cape Town to Dubai, Africa Oil Week will continue to stimulate upstream deals and transactions, drive investments into African projects, and facilitate new partnerships and networking opportunities for the African upstream. The event presents a chance to be a bridge between Africa and the Middle East, showcasing the immense potential in the African market.
One of the key highlights of the event is its noteworthy line-up of Ministers and government leaders, with 66% of African governments including ministers from Ghana, Uganda, Senegal, Côte d’Ivoire, Kenya and the Democratic Republic of the Congo to be represented. More than 24 National Energy Showcases will be hosted throughout the week, providing a dedicated investment platform for ministers, NOCs, Utilities and Regulators to broker deals and meet new partners.
