Governments and Regulators


AOW is the meeting place for ministers, government officials and regulators across the continent.

Our VIP Programme AOW: 50 and our National Showcases attract key African decision makers every year to promote investments within Africa’s fastest-growing energy markets.

Why attend AOW?

Meet investors committed to your country's future

AOW offers a premium and international stage for government officials to showcase the potential of their energy markets for investments. From promoting upstream data to showcasing investment opportunities across the value-chain, AOW is where you meet credible investors committed to the future of your country.

Take the stage and share your policies

Amidst rapidly changing regulatory environments, AOW gives you the opportunity to communicate your efforts and policies to attract investments, along with promoting your latest energy sector development plans (energy transition plans, gas master plans etc).

Build long-lasting public-private partnerships

As African countries seek to raise more capital for their energy sector, AOW is where you meet private investors dedicated to building long-lasting public-private partnerships (PPPs) to expand your energy infrastructure.


"An event like AOW is critical for us. It gives us a platform where all our stakeholders are in one room and with that we are able to promote and convey our message as a country.”

Maggy Shino, Petroleum Commissioner, Ministry of Mines and Energy, Namibia

"It's been great to engage with investors, indigenous operators and international companies that are operating in Nigeria.”

Olu Verheijen, Special Advisor to the President of Nigeria on Energy
