BCM have just successfully managed Oil & Gas public relations at Africa Oil Week in Cape Town.
The 25th anniversary of the event was the highest profile yet, with 11 African Ministers attending and most of the senior management of the majors speaking &/or in attendance.
BCM managed Oil & Gas public relations at Africa Oil Week with 9 Press Conferences including with Ministers from South Africa, Sudan, Gabon, Nigeria, Uganda, the Gambia, & Ghana. We co-ordinated the press event for the South African DoE & IEA agreement & the subsequent Press Conference. We also managed 2 private sector Press Conferences with PWC and the Ugandan Chamber of Mines & Petroleum.
Added to all that was an additional 6 one-to-one interviews with Ministers including the Minister from the Côte d’Ivoire, 48 vox pop interviews with all keynote speakers and 38 interviews with other speakers, sponsors and delegates.
The PR at AOW resulted in extensive coverage of the event both locally & internationally by the Media was managed through the BCM run Media Lounge. Journalists from Bloomberg, Platts, Reuters, & from publications such as Upstream, Petroleum Economist, African Energy, Africa Oil & Gas Report, Energy Intelligence to name but a few were given access to all the major players and events of the conference.
