Oil & Gas Africa 2017
Cape Town show draws on worldwide energy expertise for key sub-Saharan oil & gas exhibition and conference
“With its well-established midstream and downstream industry, Cape Town makes for a perfect location for Oil & Gas 2017 to serve Southern Africa”
One of South Africa’s key expos will bring a bigger focus on the oil & gas sector this winter in Cape Town.
The show was acquired last year by global exhibition and conference organiser, dmg events MEA adding to its worldwide energy portfolio that includes ADIPEC, which attracts 80,000 visitors to the UAE in the world’s largest oil expo outside of North America.
“After two years, the energy sector worldwide has adapted to lower prices and focus has returned to this continent,” says Brad Hook, dmg-ems Africa’s Commercial Director. “We’ve seen a lot of positive movement across Africa including new discoveries and major investment by international explorers, like Total in east Africa and British North Sea explorers choosing to move their focus here.
“As an established international organiser, dmg brings its international experience of the sector to South Africa and it has invested heavily in this 2017 event.”
Oil & Gas Africa 2017 runs from 11-13 July at the Cape Town International Conference Centre and alongside the exhibition there is a three-day conference. The Oil, Gas & Petrochem (OGP) Summit 2017 will feature industry experts sharing insights and experience from across the sector.
Oil & Gas Africa 2017 attracts suppliers from across the continent, providing them with a comprehensive platform to meet prospective business partners and facilitate face-to-face meetings.
“With a well-established midstream and downstream industry, Cape Town makes for a perfect location for Oil & Gas 2017 to serve Southern Africa,” says Hook. “The energy sector has undergone huge changes in the past two years and we believe Africa is now ready to move forward.”
