Networking Receptions

Africa Oil Week is more than just a conference programme. We are a platform that connects you to the key industry leaders and decision-makers that help set out the future direction of the continent's oil and gas value chain.

Each year, we hold networking receptions across all four days of the conference to maximise deal-making opportunities, allowing our delegates to connect in a more intimate, relaxed environment.
