Key decision makers will be at EAPIC – will you be one of them?

Our 13th event, which is this year taking place in Uganda, will bring you face to face with the key decision makers in the Ugandan power sector.  As part of the Ugandan national development plan, priority sectors have been identified for accelerated development – one of these key sectors is the power and energy industry.  To this effect, US$210.28mn has been allocated to the power sector for the 2010-2011 financial year.  

Priority development areas include:

  • Increase generation capacity
  • Build new transmission lines
  • Accelerate rural electrification
  • Promote energy efficiency
  • Strengthen the policy, legal and institutional framework
  • Promote renewable energy
  • Build capacity in the energy sector

With an average of 8% economic growth over the last 6 years, Uganda offers a number of attractive business opportunities

Why you have to be at EAPIC 2011:

As one of the leading solution providers in the African power sector, it is essential that your company is represented at EAPIC. Here’s is why this event is unmissable:

  • Our exhibitions are designed for BUYERS. One of our promises to delegates is to provide a comprehensive aid to partner selection – a year’s worth of supplier selection due diligence in two days.
  • Our expert speakers help buyers define their requirements, and our expert-led exhibition tours help them differentiate the solution providers
  • Participate in EAPIC to put more qualified leads into your sales pipeline. Accelerate deals with your existing prospects – many will be at the show!
