Africa Oil Week set to host first-ever in-person event in Dubai
DUBAI, 26th September, 2021 – Africa Oil Week (AOW), the leading oil and gas show for Africa, is scheduled to host its 27th edition in Dubai.
The event will run from 8th to 11th November, 2021 at Madinat Jumeirah.

Over 24 national energy showcases will be hosted throughout the week, providing a dedicated investment platform for Ministers, NOCs, Utilities and Regulators to broker deals and meet new partners.
Reuniting the industry under the “Succeeding in a Changed Market” theme, Africa Oil Week will bring together thought-leaders among industry and government representatives who will reshape the future of oil and gas in Africa.
Adhering to the theme, the strategic conference will focus on the African upstream’s preparedness to adapt and respond to the global COVID-19 pandemic and accelerated the energy transition, while building the industry by unlocking upstream asset and exploration potential.
