South America Energy Week

 

Buenos Aires, Argentina
&
Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

12 – 14 November 2018

The only CEO-driven platform to compare energy investment opportunities across the continent

What is South America Energy Week?

South America Energy Week is a 4-in-1 platform for 400+ C-level energy executives, their partners and investors. It is split between two locations: 12- 13 November in Buenos Aires focusing on upstream, midstream and power/renewables sectors and 14 of November in Rio de Janeiro covering energy projects across the value chain.

In 2018, we will be focusing on “the highest ROI projects in the energy sector on the continent”. Whatever your business focus is –  upstream, midstream or power – South America Energy Week will answer your specific questions.

KEY TOPICS to be debated off-record in 2018:

 

  • Debt markets and project financing in Argentina, Colombia and emerging energy players
  • Supply/demand globally, product pricing and policy affecting project development
  • Where do investors (PE, Development banks, Funds) see the biggest ROI in the short and mid-term?
  • O&G projects comparison across South America: Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Peru, Ecuador, Colombia
  • Brazil: evaluation of the pre-salt auctions by the winners – early lessons learned

I always find this to be one of the most effective venues for us to see clients and partners.”

I truly appreciate your coordination and support for arranging my personal meetings and assisting me when required. I was surprised that the day after the conference was finished I had available for download the event showguide, presentation slides, key event documents and photos. Impeccable work.
Thank you again. I will definitely recommend that my colleagues participate at your next event. Looking forward to seeing you again.”
