World Class Steering Committee
Setting the agenda of Africa’s premier energy event is a process that’s entirely different from usual conference planning. Instead of issuing a call for speakers and conference papers, as many conferences do when setting an event programme, the Africa Energy Indaba steering committee meets throughout the year to plan and discuss the topics that will be debated at the Johannesburg event. Once the topics are decided then the best speakers are sourced specific to the topic and invited. This way, the Africa Energy Indaba offers the best industry experts discussing their respective topics and providing the delegates in attendance with a world-class conference event relating to content and speakers.
The topics for the 2014 event are not merely a repackaging of previous years’ topics, but are cutting edge and exploratory topics that are particularly important to the African context, obtained through annual surveys conducted with the WEC and SANEA. The issues of de-centralised energy supply, skills development in the energy sector, political volatility and realisation of gas potential are all topics that are currently being grappled with by Africa’s energy industry players.
The Africa Energy Indaba 2014 will be held from the 18th – 20th February 2014 at the Sandton Convention Centre in Johannesburg, South Africa.
