Procurement Manager, Shell South Africa Marketing (Pty) Ltd

A number of suppliers have been invited to participate in the largest global tender of its kind for Shell.  This would not have been possible had we not met with them face-to-face at the Africa PetroForum.

“For a company breaking into a new industry, the networking proved invaluable. We have established several key contacts which may have taken weeks or months without our attendance.”

“PetroForum is a shortcut to building relationships that otherwise would take years to build. Bringing international suppliers to one place makes the world smaller”

"The format is highly constructive and represents a most valuable use of time.  The blend of short-sharp meetings, the networking and follow-up around the fringes of proceedings maximises everyone’s opportunity to meet, learn and plan."
