The Africa Energy Forum, an annual meeting for decision-makers in Africa’s energy community, has launched a new brand identity to better represent its core values of innovation, integrity and stakeholder collaboration.
The rebrand marks the beginning of a new chapter for the meeting as it enters its 21st year.
“With momentum in African energy showing no signs of slowing down, we want to ensure our brand communicates our values to the communities we serve,” Managing Director of the Forum, Simon Gosling commented.
“This new brand identity is in keeping with the values that have underpinned the Forum’s development over the last two decades. What we focus on is straight forward – gathering together the people who make deals happen. Our new, bolder identity reflects this simplicity, whilst strengthening our position in the market and delivering increased value to our customers,” he added.
The Forum, which attracts 2,000 attendees annually to discuss the financing and development of energy projects across Africa, seeks to connect decision-makers within the energy sector to drive development of energy projects and electrify the continent faster.
According to EnergyNet, a company that works closely with governments and utilities to facilitate investment summits, the new logo builds on this theme of connectivity, while the fresher, modern design is in keeping with the forward-thinking and innovative nature of the Forum.
EnergyNet has been producing investment forums and executive dialogues for Africa’s power sector for over 25 years, more recently expanding their offering with a series of meetings focusing on Latin America and the Caribbean. Their latest endorsement is this year’s Africa Energy Forum.
Thirteen African Energy Ministers attended the Forum’s 20th anniversary in Mauritius last June. The 21st Africa Energy Forum will take place in Lisbon, Portugal from the 11th to the 14th of June, 2019.
