Why Dubai?

After careful evaluation of government guidelines and consultation with our customers, Future Energy Series: Africa 2021, will now take place in Dubai (United Arab Emirates) on 8-11 November.

Why are we moving?

  • Ensuring the safety and wellbeing of our attendees has always been our top priority
  • Exceptional progress has been made in the UAE’s vaccination programme
  • International large-scale events have already commenced and have attracted business travellers from countries across the world with the Dubai Expo due to welcome travellers from 200 counties in October 2021
  • We believe moving to Dubai will enable us to deliver a premium event experience
  • To allow our customers amble time to make travel arrangements we have acted early and decisively

Why we chose Dubai? 

  • 88% of clients said they would prefer FESA to take place in Dubai over other locations
  • Dubai is the leading financial centre in the Middle East, Africa and South Asia - presenting a new opportunity to bring Africa to a huge investor base to drive transactions
  • Airlinks with Africa, Asia, Europe and North America are unparalleled, ensuring convenient travel for our global attendees
  • It’s an attractive travel destination with great weather and lots to explore

A different location but Africa remains at our core

The four-day conference will be the must-attend gathering with Africa at its core, a platform dedicated to fostering relationships, and promoting a sustainable energy transition in Africa. We are honoured to have the support from the leading Government Ministers and regulatory bodies from across Africa, confirming Future Energy Series: Africa’s position as the event shaping the future of African energy.

"Thanks to robust efforts to tackle the pandemic since its outset in early 2020, Dubai was among the first cities globally to reopen for tourism and business events, and we have built on this momentum by rapidly and efficiently rolling out a vaccine programme. Against this backdrop in which the safety of all visitors remains our priority, face-to-face meetings provide an unrivalled opportunity to network and do business, and we are therefore pleased to be able to host Future Energy Series: Africa this year. With our strong flight connectivity, delegates from across Africa will be able to safely gather in Dubai for this event, making the most of the opportunity to make deals, drive conversations around the future of oil, gas and energy, and recapture economic growth.”
