The Utility CEO Forum: Nigeria

More about our regional Utility CEO Forums

The Utility CEO Forums are closed-door boardroom meetings, by invitation only and facilitated under Chatham House Rules. The interactive and collaborative platforms foster dialogue through confidentiality and trust, allowing utility CEOs an opportunity to tackle the most pressing topics and challenges they are facing. The Utility CEO Forums pave the way for transformation by discussing issues of strategic planning, financing models and regional centres of excellence throughout Africa.

The Utility CEO Forum Nigeria (at Future Energy Nigeria) will take place 13-14 November 2018 at the Eko Hotel, Lagos, Nigeria.  The Forum will support Nigeria’s power leaders (including Discos, Gencos and IPPs) collaborate and focus on unique in-country challenges.
