After careful evaluation of government guidelines and consultation with customers, Africa Oil Week 2021, originally scheduled from 1-5 November in Cape Town, South Africa will be moving dates and location and will now take place in Dubai (United Arab Emirates) on 8-11 November 2021 in the Madinat Jumeirah.
Delivering the event to the high standard to which its audience is accustomed and ensuring the safety and wellbeing of its attendees has always been the organisers’ priority. They believe that hosting the 2021 edition in Dubai will enable them to ensure that the event experience is both safe and premium for customers.
Announcing the event, the organisers said: “The United Arab Emirates has demonstrated exceptional progress in its vaccination programme and has also led the way in safely reopening international large-scale events – hosting its first ‘in-person’ event post-lockdown as early as July last year and more recently, played host to large-scale, highly-successful events that attracted business travellers from more than 150 countries, increasing business confidence and accelerating the revival of all major sectors in the country. As such, in order to allow our customers ample time to make travel arrangements, we have made the decision to move dates and location – we are confident that Dubai will be a safe and highly desirable destination to host Africa Oil Week’s 27th edition.”
