The Power-Gen Africa Conference is a very important event for all of Africa’s premier businesses involved in the power sector. This includes those involved in the future strategy of the sector, including the growth of renewable energy and the involvement of new technologies now coming on line and becoming more readily available. The conference is also being promoted and marketed as an event that all major generators and distributors of power should attend, as well as those industries that are currently regular large consumers of electricity. Whilst greener more renewable energy sources remain a key focus for Africa, the event will also include discussions about fossil fuels and nuclear power.
The Power-Gen Africa event, has been organized this year with the assistance of the PennWell Corporation and will be taking place for 3 days in the Sandton Convention Centre in Johannesburg, South Africa the 18-20 July 2017.
Highlights from the 2016 POWER-GEN & DistribuTECH Africa event
The vast range of experts involved in the 2016 event ensured that the event not only delivered high quality content but also provided comprehensive practical information. The 2016 event was attended by over 3,000 attendees, 80 exhibitiors and over 100 speakers. These numbers are all expected to be exceeded during the 2017 event.
Christopher Nthala, the Chief Operating Officer (CEO) at the Copperbelt Energy Corporation in Zambia, when asked about the 2016 event said, “The conference provided valuable insights into the power sector in Africa. “.
Important exhibitors and attendees expected to attend the 2017conference
A number of VIP’s from across Africa’s power sector will not only attend the event but once an individual is registered as an official delegate or exhibitor, it will also be possible for delegates and exhibitors to personally meet with some of the key decision makers from the industry, during which time you can discuss both your marketing objectives and business aspirations. These types of personal interactions are in no doubt significantly responsible for the fact that when asked, 100% of all the attendees at the 2016 event confirmed that they would be attending again in 2017, as well as recommending the conference to their colleagues.
A brighter future for Africa’s power industry
The list of VIP’s attending the event will include government and ministerial official as well as professionals and executives from both private and government utility companies. The companies represented will be from across both Sub-Saharan Africa and other parts of the world, ensuring extensive and detailed exchanges of information, including new and improved techniques and lessons learnt. This exchange of information will ensure that the power industry across many parts of Africa will be able to both expand and strengthen their position in the sector, in turn creating a brighter future for the African power industry.
