Networking Events

Network Like Never Before

Outside of the unrivalled content sessions at AOW, you can network with the most high-profile C-suite executives and decision-makers attending. With exclusive events every night, you have the chance to discuss the day's learnings, build relationships and maximise those face-to-face deal-making opportunities. With 2024 being our 30th anniversary, stay tuned for announcements on our special networking events planned for this year!


Evening Networking Receptions

Our Evening Drinks Receptions are great opportunities to network and build relationships and are open to all delegates. With stunning Cape Town views, what better way to relax towards the end of a productive day filled with content and meetings than with an evening gathering to make rich connections with your industry peers.



Welcome reception

The Welcome Reception is always the perfect start to launch AOW. From private sector C-suite executives to government representatives, there is a unique opportunity for everyone to make connections. The spectacular waterfront venue and live entertainment kick off the week beautifully and set the tone for the days to come!



Farewell Braai

The perfect closing note to AOW. With the weeks’ worth of discussions, presentations, and networking behind us, this beachside barbecue lets everyone unwind, reflect, and say their goodbyes in this beautiful setting.



Happy Hours

Our Happy Hour sessions take place every day 17:30 - 18:30 in the AOW Business Lounge on the exhibition floor. This is where you can network in a relaxed setting in the centre of our busy exhibition floor as you meet with leaders, speakers, exhibitors and key decision makers.
