These conferences and exhibitions are growing phenomenon in Africa, they promote what all African countries are now looking for: developing their power and energy sectors. The conferences as well as the exhibitions, bring together politicians, technicians, engineers and leading companies in the relevant sectors, to come together and share their opinions, to come up with new ideas and solutions.

Both the exhibitions and the conferences will raise very diverse questions surrounding the topics of renewable energies, nuclear technology, energy efficiency, IT solutions, etc. They will gather people mainly from East and Central Africa and also a number of trade bodies from Kenya, Ethiopia, Uganda, Somalia, Mozambique and Congo are also invited. It is organized by the Expo-group, a company who organizes most of the exhibitions and trade fairs which take place in the Middle East and Africa.

Tanzania welcomes the conference this year because it is one of the most important African countries in terms of energy and power. On the 23rd of June 2016, the country received a $200 million loan from the World Bank, which will be used to connect the country and increase its efficiency.

Indeed, this kind of scientific conference connect people and represents the growing economic soft power which is currently spreading across Africa.
