COVID Guidelines

Our approach to prevention, protection, mitigation and monitoring safety

African Energy Week (AEW) 2021 has the full support of African and global industry leaders and will take place under strict Covid-19 protocols to ensure the safety of attendees.

The AEW 2021 event is strategically designed to adhere to government protocols, ensuring that adequate testing and sanitizing facilities are in place while introducing a format that restricts attendee numbers in each venue.

As we prepare to welcome delegates, speakers, exhibitors and more to AEW 2021, the following safety measures have been adopted to ensure a safe and secure event for all who are attending.
