Over the past 22 years, the West African Mining and Power Conference and Exhibition (WAMPOC/WAMPEX) has established itself as a major Mining and Power industry forum during which senior Government representatives, key industry executives and influencers from across the African continent and beyond meet to discuss policy, legislation, challenges and market developments. Exhibitors from around the world also participate to showcase latest technologies, innovations and products which feed into the supply-chain of the both the Mining and Power industries.
With the participation of HE the President of the Republic of Ghana as Special Guest of WAMPOC/WAMPEX 2018 already confirmed, this year’s event will no doubt be extremely well-attended as it is one of the most important industry meeting places which offers direct access to the mining hub of West Africa. In 2016, WAMPOC/WAMPEX attracted over 1400 professionals from more than 16 countries.
WAMPOC/WAMPEX 2018 is organised in partnership with the Ghana Chamber of Mines, assuring participants of the presence of the major gold mining companies who are members of the Chamber. In addition, the Chamber will hold its 90th Annual General Meeting during this event ensuring that delegates, exhibitors and visitors will benefit from the participation of key stakeholders from across the industry.
WAMPOC/WAMPEX has traditionally been endorsed by the Ghana Ministry of Lands & Natural Resources, the Minerals Commission of Ghana, Volta River Authority, Electricity Company of Ghana, GRIDCO and the Energy Commission of Ghana thus providing an unrivaled platform where opportunities are created and business transactions are conceptualized and concluded and this year’s event will be no different.
