The organisers have strict policies which limit unofficial activities at the African Utility Week 2018 conference and exhibition.

These unofficial activities include social events, classes, seminars, hospitality suites, investigator meetings, focus groups and industry-supported symposia that are not planned or authorised by the organisers.

Exhibitors shall therefore not, during the 3-day period of the exhibition, conduct or sponsor any unofficial activities other than those provided by the organisers within thirty (30) kilometres from the Cape Town International Convention Centre.

The organisers and sponsors have arranged an extended networking function, which will provide excellent networking opportunities during the event.

Failure to comply with these regulations may result in expulsion from the exhibition hall in current or future years. Consult the organisers should you wish to host a function of this type.
