The Format

The WAFPOW Summit separates itself from traditional conferences and exhibitions. There are no booths or exhibition halls at our summit. We focus on delivering extremely high quality, high level gatherings with some of the most senior executives in the power sector in an intimate five star environment. All the themes and topics of our summit are end user driven and are put together by our content committee which consists of our delegation and government relations team who set the hot themes and issues that are currently facing the power industry.

We are able to impact your business development efforts in the region by arranging pre-determined closed door business meetings with senior executives. Our project intelligence reports ensure that every meeting you have will be extremely targeted, and you will know exactly who you will meet and the topics that will be discussed weeks in advance of the summit commencing. We only set-up mutually agreed meetings, ensuring there’s synergy and gives you the best possible chance of doing business at the summit. This approach allows you to consolidate 6 to 12 months’ business meetings into the 3 days, cutting your travel times and expenditure.

In this climate, we understand that justifying your marketing spend is crucial and we ensure that the work we do for our clients pre and post event give you the best possible chance of leaving our summit with a substantial return on investment.
