Power Safety Summit and Exhibition
now to hold in November
The second edition of the Power Safety Summit and Exhibition earlier scheduled to hold October 23-24, 2018 has been shifted to November 27 -28, 2018, in Abuja.
The Summit which is expected to attract stakeholders from across the power sector value chain, both from within and outside Nigeria, will now take place at the prestigious Nicon Luxury Hotel, Abuja.
The postponement was due to unforeseen circumstances beyond the control of the organisers. However, in spite of the shift in date to accommodate all key participants preparations are still going on to ensure a befitting summit in November.
While we regret this deferment, we apologise to all stakeholders for this development and the inconveniences this shift in date might have caused them. All is being done by the organisers to host a successful summit, having the total comfort of the sponsors, Speakers and participants central to our goal.
