NAIROBI, Kenya: Smart Africa Media, a fast growing pan-African business media relations firm today announced its partnership with African Energy Week 2022 to be held in Cape Town in October this year. The media partnership, renewed for the second year in a row, aims to capture and amplify pro-development and success stories in the energy industry to drive economic development.
Smart Africa Media (SAM) is a fast-growing Pan-African online multimedia convergence platform whose purpose is to aggregate, publish and amplify pro-development and success stories across Africa and the Diaspora to inspire investment and development, with a focus on business and the economy.
African Energy Week (AEW) (https://aecweek.com/) is the African Energy Chamber’s (AEC) annual conference, exhibition and networking event which unites African Energy stakeholders with investors and international partners to drive industry growth and development and promote Africa as the destination for energy investments.
When commenting on the partnership Founder and Managing Editor of Smart Africa Media, Elvis Mboya said, “The renewal of this partnership for the second time is very humbling and a clear testimony of a job well done. We look forward to working together to deliver better results in our quest to amplify pro-development and success stories to inspire investment and development.”
“AEW 2022 is centred around the role Africa’s resources will play in meeting global energy demand while driving a just and sustainable energy transition. Specifically, the event prioritises natural gas, recognising the potential of this clean and widely available resource to electrify Africa, ease Europe’s energy crisis and significantly reduce carbon emissions. The Chamber welcomes Smart Africa Media on board as a media partner for AEW for a second time, we value the continued support and dedication of Elvis Mboya and his team,” said Leon van der Merwe, AEW Conference Director.
AEW was established in 2021 under the premise to make energy poverty history by 2030, hosting panel discussions, investor forums, industry summits and one-on-one meeting opportunities, and driving the discussions that will reshape the trajectory of the continent’s energy development.
Following a successful 2021 edition, the event returns across several venues in the V&A Waterfront in Cape Town, South Africa from 18-21 October and will host energy industry’s government ministers, top-tier executives, thought leaders and international investors.
