Industry Leaders and Power Sector Operators to Gather in Lagos for Power Nigeria 2017
By Ndubuisi Micheal Obineme
Informa Exhibitions is set to organize a 3-days conference and exhibition in Lagos on 5 – 7 September, 2017 at Landmark Centre, Lagos. Nigeria’s leading power exhibition, Power Nigeria, is dedicated to the burgeoning Nigerian power industry. Prior to this B2B trade event, the organizers of Power Nigeria, Informa Exhibitions, will gather a large number of leading power personalities and stakeholders to present plans for the future of the Nigerian Power Sector.
With Informa’s strong track record of organizing exhibitions (including the world’s largest power event, Middle East Electricity), Power Nigeria is poised to become the country’s main hub for trade and knowledge share within the Nigerian power sector. The overwhelming sentiment that the Nigerian power market has great potential but the sector requires major action. With President Muhammadu Buhari’s public commitment to invest heavily in the power sector, the Power Nigeria exhibition and conference takes place at a critical time for contractors, consultants, distributors and traders to forge strong relationships with international and local suppliers.
Electricity delivered safely, reliably and affordably is commensurate with the growth of a nation and the single, most impact element when it comes to personal comfort. According to report, Nigeria produced about 5,000 MW of power on the National Grid for about 180 million people in 2016, falling extremely short of expectations. Government incentives have made Nigeria a highly competitive destination with massive untapped resources in power (generation to distribution).
Power Nigeria exhibition and conference has become the platform where the who’s who of the Nigerian power industry – from decision makers and industry leaders to experts and engineers – gather to collaborate towards a brighter future for the country. The 2017 edition of Power Nigeria will be its brightest one yet, with over 200 exhibitors from 12 countries and a special country pavilion from the middle east featuring their companies.
The exhibition will be held in conjunction with the three-day Power Nigeria Conference, which starts with the Government and DISCO states of address on day one, where delegates will get to hear from the Hon. Minister of Power, Works and Housing, Babatunde Fashola, NERC, and many others. The second day of the conference will focus on key finance issues of the Nigerian power sector; with the gas to power workshops.
Over the years, Power Nigeria has grown to become the place where the Power Industry’s who’s who comes to learn, liaise, and do business. Consistent growth has made Power Nigeria a must attend event in the country’s energy industry. Come discover the latest services and innovations on 5 – 7 September 2017, 10AM – 5 PM at the Landmark Centre, Victoria Island, Lagos, Nigeria.
