The business communities’ ability to innovate and to provide suitable technologies and comprehensive solutions to the energy challenges in Africa and Europe plays a crucial role at achieving AEEP targets. In this light, the organisers have decided to seize the opportunity of having over 400 energy thought leaders coming together at the AEEP High Level Meeting to invite cutting-edge technology providers to display their energy solutions to this high level public.
Why should you join the exhibition?
The exhibition at the 2nd HLM of the AEEP aims at providing the private sector with a unique and outstanding opportunity to showcase their technologies, comprehensive energy solutions and projects to prominent African and European leaders from the public and private sectors, as well as to senior energy professionals and delegates from civil society, academia and development organisations. Exhibitors will profit from:
- Access to a Ministerial and VIP Audience – Unique opportunity to reach a high number of prominent decision-makers at government and private sector level in a short period of time and in one location. The High Level Meeting will host Ministers from both Europe and Africa, CEOs and decision-makers from top level energy sector companies and organisations, and over 400 key energy experts who will be able to visit your stand and learn more about your technology solutions at the exhibition.
- Face-To-Face Business Acquisition - Unique opportunity to meet potential clients, business partners or sponsors in person.
- Be part of moving the AEEP ahead – Your participation at the High Level Meeting will be a crucial demonstration of our collective and ongoing commitment to achieving the 2020 AEEP Targets.
