Networking Opportunities

Africa E&P Conference’s high-quality technical programme attracts delegates from all over the world and reflecting the high-quality technical content, 50% of the audience is G&G, with 20% of the audience identifying themselves as C-level executives. There are numerous opportunities to meet fellow delegates, to discuss and evaluate the content within the talks and develop business relationships.

This year’s programme includes:

Speed Networking Event

Monday 30th September

17:30 – 18:30

Kensington Suite, Hilton London Olympia (next to the Africa E&P Conference Icebreaker)

Looking for a way to meet people outside of your network and establish new relationships with like-minded professionals? Speed networking is quick, efficient and fun!

Particularly designed to facilitate networking between participants with fewer years’ experience and seasoned conference attendees, this is a great opportunity to make new contacts through one-on-one focused conversations, each lasting just a few minutes.

Taking place immediately prior to the Icebreaker Reception and open exclusively to participants of the Africa E&P Conference 2019, this is a great opportunity to begin networking early!


Icebreaker Reception

Monday 30th September

18:30 – 20:30

Westminster Suite, Hilton London Olympia

Africa’s Icebreaker Reception will once again take place this year, allowing you to network with other conference delegates and to view the best posters, prior to the conference.

Conveniently located next to Olympia London, this event will kick off the conference, and allow for informal chats prior to the main two-day event. Drinks will be served upon arrival.

Evening Drinks Reception

Tuesday 1st October

17:30 – 19:30

Conference Centre, Olympia London


Immediately at the close of the first day of the conference, we will begin the Evening Drinks Reception, providing the opportunity for you to connect with other delegates, share knowledge and discuss the content of the conference delivered as well as to visit the exhibitors in an informal manner.
