Hosted Buyer Programme

Curating meaningful meetings between relevant attendees and exhibitors is the reason why Nigeria Energy, formerly Power Nigeria, is the go-to event within the West African energy industry. 

Leveraging our successful B2B matchmaking programme in 2019, this edition will host the highly exclusive and invitation-only Hosted Buyer programme bringing together over 100 VIPs with direct purchasing powers and/or who are key stakeholders, investors and decision-makers from Governments, Utilities, Developers, Consultants, Contractors, Financial Institutions, Power Pools and Industrial/Commercial Users.

Despite being the strongest economy in Africa, Nigeria still has 43% of its population not having access to basic electricity needs. The country needs addtional $410 billion investment to upgrade its power infrastructure, especially for transmission and distribution, using a strategic mix of grid and mini-grid systems creating affordable and sustainable energy resources for the people. 

New for this year, Nigeria Energy Investors Club will bring together investors from the Middle East and Africa and aims to drive sustainable finance for Nigeria and help move the energy projects forward. Stay tuned for more updates!
