@ The Water Show Africa

Join us as a speaker


Here, at The Water Show Africa, we pride ourselves on providing attendees with more great, engaging content than any other energy event in Africa. From roundtables and workshops to presentations, panels and conferences over two days, delegates will have the option to dive deep into the subject areas that matter the most to them.

The Water Show Africa is not just a great experience for the delegates. They are also really valuable for those who take the stage across the show to share their expertise, insights and challenges. In 2017 alone we welcomed over 300 speakers from 40 African countries across conference tracks and seminar theatres, all of whom were painstakingly researched and approached by our production team.

In 2018, we’re excited to be fundamentally transforming the way that the show is produced. Rather than just prospecting for great speakers as we did in 2017, this year, we will for the first time, be crowdsourcing our speaker line-up.

Spark Something is a platform that allows you, our community, to submit your great session ideas to us across a variety of different participation formats.

Following a month long application window we will sit down with our experienced and diverse advisory boards and select the sessions that we think will be the most valuable for our delegates. These selected sessions will then make up the programme for the show.




The application form below is split into two sections, and the total application should only take 15 minutes to complete.

All questions marked with a * are compulsory, however the more sections you complete the better we can assess the value of your session, and the higher chance you’ll have of getting a place on the programme.
