Bringing people together is at the heart of what we do at Africa Oil Week. This is why we are continuing to do everything we can to stay connected with our community during this time. After discussion with our partners in South Africa and key stakeholders in the oil and gas community, we have made a collective decision to reschedule Africa Oil Week 2020 to 1-5 February 2021.
This decision was taken in consideration of the continuing global impact of COVID-19, international travel restrictions and with the wellbeing of our speakers, delegates, sponsors and exhibitors top of mind. We believe that rescheduling the show to early 2021 will enable us to deliver another strong edition drawing the oil and gas community together and provide a platform for the industry to meet, reconnect and set the agenda for 2021. The show will be held in accordance with latest health & safety and government guidance and will take place alongside our sister event Investing in African Mining Indaba.
In the meantime, we are delighted to announce the launch of AOW Virtual, which will take place 7-8 October 2020. This strategic event will feature free insightful content streamed online, including pioneering insights from the industry's heavyweights, multi-stakeholder strategic conversations, an opportunity for delegates joining us at Africa Oil Week in February 2021 to connect virtually, and more. We want to enable the oil and gas industry to come together and help shape the roadmap for an industry response to current challenges. Register your interest here.
