Please plan on joining us for the 3rd International Off-Grid Lighting Conference and Trade Fair to be held November 13-15, 2012, in Dakar, Senegal, at the King Fahd Palace Hotel. The event is organized by Lighting Africa, with support of the Senegal Rural Electrification Agency (ASER). This is follow-up to prior, highly successful events held in Accra, Ghana, 2008, and Nairobi, Kenya, 2010.

Benefits of attending are networking and information exchange, Business-to-Business (B2B) linkages of global manufacturers and local suppliers, increasing investor support for improved lighting products and services, highlighting business and financing models for lighting projects, and obtaining updated information on Lighting Africa/Global activities. Key conference topics include:
  • Meeting the Rural Electrification Challenge: Role for Modern Lighting
  • Sustainable Energy for All: Opportunities for Off-Grid Lighting
  • Reaching the Base of the Pyramid: Impacts, Market Status, and Trends
  • Financing Across the Supply Chain
