Oil & Gas Africa Exhibition and Conference is being held from the 27th to the 29th of August, 2015 at Tanzania’s prime international venue; the Mlimani Conference Centre in Dar-Es-Salaam. Set to be a key driver in kick-starting the presence of international firms into the local market, the inaugural edition of Oil & Gas Africa 2015 will play host to exhibitors from 20 countries/regions, all eager to play a part in uplifting the East African oil and gas sector.
The 1st edition of Oil & Gas Africa will flag off the entry of international support services into the local oil and gas industry. The exhibition will play host to a multitude of international companies looking to introduce and expand their operations, products and services in Africa.
Providing international businesses with a gateway to enter East Africa’s oil and gas industry, we will begin to see an influx of foreign companies; building and growing a more robust value chain of support services. Having released its oil and gas resources to the international market, many international firms are looking for local agents and partners, as well as setting up operations in Africa.
Exhibiting at the largest oil and gas event in the industry will allow participants to showcase companies products and services to the industry’s largest gathering of qualified decision-makers.
Trade visitors from all over East & Central African countries are being invited directly and in collaboration with several regional trade bodies in Kenya, Tanzania, Ethiopia, Uganda, Somalia, Mozambique & Congo. Though Tanzania Is developing into one of the biggest markets in Africa, major emphasis is being laid upon attracting traders and importers from neighboring countries.
The event not only creates access for international firms to enter Africa but also for existing Oil & Gas companies to engage and easily source for suppliers. The industry is certainly headed down a path of rapid growth and will need a healthy pool of support services and suppliers to thrive and prosper. The event aims to promote foreign and local products while also creating awareness of investment opportunities in Tanzania and East Africa.
