Networking

Our delegates attend AEF for a number of reasons- but top of the list for most is the outstanding quality of networking.

For the last 20 years AEF has been the annual gathering for Africa’s energy sector, gathering governments, utilities, power developers, financial institutions, power technology providers, EPC contractors and consultants from all over the world.

The Forum has evolved into the number one platform to attend meetings, do deals and drive projects forward, all under one roof.  With a 991% increase in attendees since the first Africa Energy Forum, it’s clear the appetite for investment in Africa’s energy sector shows no signs of abating.
