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.

Each year, 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.

Below, you can see a list of networking events that took place in 2019.
