TechInAfrica – The Future Energy Series: Africa 2021 was supposed to be held in Cape Town, South Africa from 1-4 November, but now the time and location have been changed to Dubai from 8-11 November.
Taking place in the Madinat Jumeirah alongside the 27th edition of Africa Oil Week, Simon Ford, Portfolio Director at Hyve Group plc said, “Delivering the event to the highest standard and ensuring the safety and wellbeing of our attendees has always been our top priority. We believe that hosting the 2021 edition in Dubai will enable us to ensure that the event experience is both safe and premium for our customers.”
“Though we are very disappointed not to be able to host our event in Cape Town this year, we believe that Dubai is the next best location. The country has demonstrated exceptional progress in its vaccination program and has also led the way in safely reopening successful, large-scale international events that attracted business travelers from more than 150 countries. This is consequently increasing business confidence and accelerating the revival of all major sectors in the country. As such, in order to allow our customers ample time to make travel arrangements, we have made the decision to move the dates and location – we are confident that Dubai will be a safe and highly desirable destination to host both the Future Energy Series: Africa and the 27th edition of Africa Oil Week.”
Future Energy Series: Africa (FESA) has been created to be the deal-making and project origination platform of choice for the continent’s most influential low-carbon energy stakeholders. FESA takes an Africa-centric approach to the energy transition, which prioritizes sustainable development and solving the continental power deficit.
