“This landmark collaboration will take African Utility Week to a whole new level”
African Utility Week has entered into an exclusive television broadcasting partnership with eNCA and will receive live coverage during the conference and exhibition from 12-14 May in Cape Town. The annual event attracts more than 5,000 power and water professionals from across the globe. eNCA is a 24-hour television news broadcaster focusing on South African and African stories.
“It is a perfect match”
“We are so pleased to join forces with eNCA and sharing the progress in the continent’s water and power industries”, says Evan Schiff, African Utility Week event director. “Energy is the driving force behind Africa’s growth and development and our conference and exhibition gather the industry to learn, share knowledge and debate the key topics to secure the future of this continent’s power and water industries. Topics will range from regional collaboration in the power sector to the untapped potential of renewable energy and investment challenges.”
He continues: “eNCA is a highly respected news organisation, known for its real African stories and unbiased coverage. It is a perfect match and this landmark collaboration will take African Utility Week to a whole new level and enable us to reach so many more people who will be able to learn and engage about energy and water – scarce resources that impact each and every one of us.”
The broadcasting partnership entails live crossings on each of the three event days from 12-14 May and other coverage of the event, which will feature 250 exhibitors, 190 speakers, eight conferences, free technical workshops on the expo floor, site visits, three high-profile plenary sessions and the coveted industry awards gala dinner.
