MSGBC Basin Summit & Exhibition
After a successful gathering in January 2020, during which His Excellency, Mr. Macky Sall, President of the Republic of Senegal opened the Summit, we’re delighted to announce the MSGBC Basin Summit & Exhibition will return to Dakar in July 2021.
As we prepare for the 5th edition, the Summit remains the only event entirely dedicated to exploring oil and gas opportunities in Mauritania, Senegal, The Gambia, Guinea Bissau and Guinea Conakry. Recognised as the meeting place for the latest updates on ongoing and upcoming projects and hear directly from local governments on future plans, the Summit has grown tremendously this year. In response to this growth, the Summit will move to the Centre International de Conférences Abdou Diouf (CICAD) and continue its mission to help you:
Sharpen your business strategy and knowledge of the Basin’s fast-growing industry
Meet with ministries, regulators, NOCs and government bodies from the five MSGBC countries, all under one roof

"The three days were extremely beneficial for our company that is trying to enter the oil and gas market. We were able to sound the needs of the market form our company type and lay a strategy plan for the next few month/years, all just from networking and speeking to the actors within the industry."
