Africa, the fastest urbanising continent in the world, must provide energy to meet the annual urban growth rate, which is twice as high as Asia and Latin America. The 8th annual Africa Energy Indaba will be the forum and business networking opportunity for the leading role-players planning and developing Africa’s energy solutions.
Africa Energy Indaba 2016 will be held from 16 – 17 February 2016, at the Sandton Convention Centre, Johannesburg, South Africa. The conference continues to grow and has become the foremost forum for debating Africa’s energy solutions and focuses on: African power suppliers; alternative and renewable energies; oil and gas; the legal and regulatory framework, and investment opportunities in African energy projects. The exhibition has become a significant market-place for African and international stakeholders doing business in Africa’s energy sector.
This twelve-storey structure is designed and built to provide convention, exhibition and special event space over five main levels. It combines spectacular double and triple-volume use of interior space in its main and public areas, with smaller and more intimate break-away meeting rooms and galleries on its mezzanine levels.
Its extensive glass frontage creates an open, inviting facade from which delegates can see and be seen, especially when travelling on the 26 escalators in their two escalator wells. The main foyers and several of the meeting rooms enjoy excellent natural daylight, and the building has been designed to accommodate and provide access for disabled visitors.

The warm natural colours and distinctive textures and shapes of the African landscape have been translated into a modern decorative idiom. The Sandton Convention Centre boasts relaxed yet sophisticated interiors which are inspired by the Earth, and are proudly South African in every way.
Simple, uncluttered interior finishes form the ideal background to a substantial collection of authentic Southern African art. Over a hundred pieces are on display on the public levels. These works of art by famous names such as Noria Mabasa and Jackson Hlongwane provide an overview of contemporary Southern African art and traditional craftwork. These artworks are a showcase of our rich and varied heritage and provide a platform for the celebration of African expression and creativity.
