Due to the ongoing uncertainty caused by the coronavirus pandemic, affecting international travel, ability to host events and people’s confidence in travelling.
In addition, the current capacity limit of 250 people would not allow us to run either event to the standard, in terms of participant numbers, that we would expect of ourselves.
Although covid-19 cases are now lower in South Africa and international business travel was allowed from 1st October, the situation around the world is still uncertain and it is extremely difficult to plan with confidence and be sure that we could host a meaningful event in February.
Why are you not postponing?
The event had already been postponed by 3 months and postponing again would not be feasible given the impact it would have on the November 2021 edition.
What will be happening in February?
Having hosted a successful virtual event in October, Africa Oil Week will not be running an official event in February. However, our digital programme continues, and we will be delivering a number of webinars and thought leadership pieces throughout the year. Should the opportunity arise we will also aim to bring groups of delegates together in a face to face setting. This will be communicated as and when this is confirmed.
When is the next face to face event taking place?
The next edition of Africa Oil Week will take place on 1-5 November 2021, CTICC, Cape Town
Will Africa Oil Week and Investing in African Mining Indaba be running together in the future?
We are now reverting back to our previous schedule which sees AOW take place in November and MI continuing its February dateline.
With synergies between the two shows we will continue showcase areas that make strategic sense for our customers. If you serve both the oil & gas and mining industries, we encourage you to engage with us and discuss how each event meet your objectives.
What else are Africa Oil Week and Investing in African Mining Indaba doing throughout the year that I can get involved in?
We have a variety of digital opportunities to participate in and sponsor. Including: topical webinars, industry reports and surveys and thought leadership content.
Should be it feasible then we are also aiming to bring groups of likeminded delegates together for networking, learning and sharing in a face to face setting. Please stay tuned to our announcements to find out more.
