Networking Receptions

Africa Oil Week is more than just a conference programme, it’s a platform to connect you with key industry leaders and decision-makers across the oil and gas value chain.

We hold networking receptions across all five days of the conference to maximise deal-making opportunities and provide delegates with a space to connect in a more intimate, relaxed environment.

Enjoy the luxurious surroundings of Cape Town’s most exclusive venues to entertain existing business clients or attract new ones. From casual drinks receptions to curated, VIP dinners, we’ve got you covered.
