I recently had the pleasure of covering the Africa Investor CEO Forum on Infrastructure, Energy & Clean Tech Products and Awards which took place at the CTICC. The event ran alongside the UNEP FI Roundtable on Climate Change and formed part of “Cape Town Green Week”.
Some of the awards included:
Transport deal of the year
Developer of the year
Water deal of the year
ICT/Telecoms deal of the year
Infrastrucuter deal of the year
The Africa Investor 2009 event will facilitate bankable investment project pitches from developers and sponsors, one-on-one meetings with investors and dialogue with infrastructure regulators on specific projects. It also focused on Energy and Clean Tech Projects and looked at the priorities identified by UNEP FI and other entities to mobilise the skills and resources of the banking, investment and insurance sectors behind an effective, efficient and equitable global deal on climate change that will be tabled at COP15 in Copenhagen.
The conference consisted of various panels and speakers and to name a few included:
Karen Shippy, Assosciate Enviromental Services, Aurecon
Ambassador Dan E Frederiksen, Embassy of Denmark
Sipho Mkhize, CEO PetroSA
Ambassador Dieter Haller, Embassy of Germany
George Chikava, CEO Communications and Allied Industries Pension Fund, Zimbabwe
Mike Poe, Head of Infrastructure, Energy and Telecommunications, Nedbank Capital
Rashid Toefy, CEO CTICC
Michael Creighton, Head of SACE
Matthias Nass VP ECI Telecom
Richard Wood, Partner, PriceWaterhouseCoopers
The conference also included a networking lunch sponsored by PetroSA.
The conference ended with a fancy gala dinner at the CTICC where Arno Carstens from SpringbokNudeGirls performed with a local choir as part of the ‘Consider Us’ Campaign. Later in the evening we were also treated to another musical treat by 3 Tons of Fun and they delivered getting almost everyone up and onto the dance floor.
