AAPG's ICE Co-location

AAPG's ICE Joins AOW in Cape Town in 2018

AAPG’s International Conference and Exhibition (ICE) to co-locate with Africa Oil Week

This year, Africa Oil Week (AOW) and the American Association of Petroleum Geologists (AAPG)'s ICE event will both be held at the Cape Town Interational Convention Centre, bringing many of the world’s top energy explorationists and executives together in Cape Town, South Africa.

ICE will be held 4-7 November, while Africa Oil Week is 5-9 November 2018.

Why Co-locate?

The co-location of these two industry-leading events will align AAPG’s focus on science and technology with AOW’s spotlight on senior-level insights, investment strategies and invaluable networking opportunities at the 25th Annual Africa Oil Week. Both events remain operated autonomously with separate registration fees, exhibit halls, and education sessions.

"Bringing these events together is about connecting the commercial and technology elements of the African Oil and Gas sector for better decision-making", said AAPG Executive Director David Curtis. "ICE at AOW is an opportunity for senior leaders to communicate, collaborate and share experiences with their technical teams."

"We're excited to welcome AAPG's ICE alongside AOW" added Paul Sinclair, Conference Director, Africa Oil Week. "Our attendees will benefit from access to the Prospect Forum, which will be led by AOW with deep technology insights gleaned from AAPG's technical program."

Co-Produced Prospect Forum

Along with the co-location, the brand new Africa Oil Week Prospect Forum is held in partnership and co-produced by AAPG. It is a unique platform for Independent Oil Companies, Geoscience companies and National Oil Companies to promote their opporutnities and data to the global oil and gas sector.

What can you attend?

The co-location allows AOW delegates to attend the Prospect Forum and the ICE Exhibition. ICE attendees are able to attend the Prospect Forum (entry to other Africa Oil Week sessions and social functions is not permitted).
