In pictures: Clarion Events’ African Utility Week Gallery

African Utility Week conference and exhibition took place in Cape Town and gathered a record 6,445 attendees from 17-19 May.

“Everyone who was part of this year’s African Utility Week felt the same passion for the energy and water sectors on the continent and had the feeling that we are on the brink of enormous progress“, says Evan Schiff, event director.

“Technology, water and renewable energy were strong themes this year,” Schiff added, “and there’s no doubt that renewable energy as well as smart technology are changing the way power and water utilities operate and deal with their customers.”

Schiff added that the exhibition will be even bigger next year as it grows into the new expo space at the CTICC.


The event featured 250 exhibitors from 40 countries, 299 speakers who addressed the packed strategic conference over three days in six different topic streams while inspiring industry pioneers engaged the audiences in the daily high-profile keynote sessions.
