19 July 2016; Offshore West Africa Conference and Exhibition will for the first time include a “Doing Business” concept to the recently announced 2017 event, taking place on 6‐8 June at the Eko Hotel & Suites, Lagos, Nigeria.
The 21st edition of Offshore West Africa will see a number of the events strategic partners, such as the Energy Institute, Lonadek, USDOC, UKTI, African Energy Association as well as many others, provide a range of presentations for international businesses who are looking to trade across West Africa. Representatives from West African countries will be invited to provide an executive overview of the offshore market in their country and present investment opportunities, alongside organizations who will also share best practices and an extensive guide of do’s and don’ts, covering a multitude of areas within the industry.
Mr. Glenn Ensor, Managing Director, PennWell International stated, “Having successfully trialled this initiative at our recent POWER‐GEN Europe event we are delighted to be bringing this concept to Offshore West Africa 2017. We have seen over recent years much more international interest in Offshore West Africa, which has seen us attract international pavilions from Scotland and the United States in recent years – as our international audience grows we want to assist those looking to enter these highly exciting markets across West Africa and believe that this “Doing Business” concept will be a great success in enabling this”.
Offshore West Africa 2016, which also took place in Lagos in January, comprised a three‐day Exhibition of both prominent local and international organizations, a dual‐track conference programme, a successful Youth Empowerment Programme (in collaboration with Lonadek and the Energy Institute Nigeria), and played host to a record‐breaking attendance for the 2nd year in succession with over 2,700 visitors and delegates from more than 40 countries around the world.
This exciting new addition to the Offshore West Africa event is one of many new initiatives from PennWell for the 2017 event, including further Corporate Social Responsibility Plans, additional exhibition pavilions and other new ventures which will enhance the experience of attending this event as either an exhibitor, speaker, delegate or visitor.
