What is South America Energy Week?
The only meeting platform bringing together Upstream Oil & Gas and Energy players from across South America to discuss and compare energy investment opportunities across the continent. The South America Energy Week is taking place in Buenos Aires and gathering 300 C-level executives, investors, public officials and experts in an intimate setting to openly and honestly discuss the highest ROI projects in the energy sector; this is an exclusive and not-to-be-missed meeting arena.
If you are looking to expand your business into other regions in South America, meet international investors from the likes of SMBC, Scotiabank, Riverstone and Maglan Capital and hear from the Argentinian government – Javier Iguacel, Secretary of Energy, Argentina – then you need to be at South America Energy Week.

2017 Success Stories
“Thanks for arranging a terrific event. As with all Oil Council events, my team and I found the South America Assembly to be a great way both to hear from industry leaders on latest market trends and developments, as well as to do some very effective networking with players from around the region.
I always find this to be one of the most effective venues for us to see clients and partners.”
“Thank you to the Energy Council Team for your incredible work and world-class organization at this event. 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.”
“Once again, many thanks for inviting me to the event. It was very useful, and I had a great time. I don’t have many benchmarks on similar events, but I can assure you that anyone can tell that it was top notch- great speakers, ample Power & Energy and Financial Sponsors network, excellent location and very nice food. Hope to see you next year!'”Ernesto de Bary
