AOW is the meeting place for the international community committed to enabling a prosperous energy outlook for Africa.
For 29 years AOW has been the voice of the African Upstream. As the world changes, so do we. For it’s 30th year we are now proud to present AOW: Investing in African Energy, where we are addressing Africa's immediate energy needs while embracing the clean energy transition.
AOW's world-class conference, networking and exhibition programme, brings together governments, regulators, global operators, power producers, investors and service providers to develop policy, secure investment and nurture partnerships that will promote sustainable development and energy transformation across the continent and beyond.
From responsible exploration and production; accelerating gas; and renewables integration; AOW is the only event providing a complete and inclusive view of the energy opportunities – from investment to access.
AOW has proven over the years to be a great event. Walking around the exhibition you meet people and have those important conversations, face to face, you can’t beat it.
