Africa 2023: Energy & Infrastructure Finance

The Westin Cape Town
Oct 24 - Oct 25, 2023
The Westin Cape Town, South Africa

Our three brands have joined forces to champion Africa! With aspects from Proximo's project finance, TXF's export & commodity finance and Uxolo's development finance this in-person spectacular has something for everyone, and maximizes networking at every possible turn.

Exile Group is the parent company of TXF, Proximo & Uxolo. Given the synergies in the markets the three brands serve, Exile is co-locating a number of its physical events in 2023. Attendees can optimise their trips by attending a TXF / Proximo / Uxolo event all at the same time, meeting more prospective business partners and learning about a wider range of industry trends.

Taking place in October 2023. this is an unmatched opportunity to end the year on a high and start 2024 with new connections, crucial business intelligence insights and get ahead of the competition. Without anything quite like it in the market right now, this unique free offering will bring you the best of all things export, project, commodities & development finance.

Across the two days there will be 4 streams:

 Export Finance
 Development Finance
 Project Finance
 Natural Resources & Commodities Finance

While each of the asset classes converge, there will be a sharp focus on each department dedicating time to delve into the top challenges and themes. We'll be covering all of the latest trends in the industry without a stone unturned. Here's an example of what could be covered next year, based on what we included in our 2022 virtual agenda:

☆ The role of local African institutions in successful projects
 Breathing life into traditional hard infrastructure and PPPs
 Debt sustainability and creditworthiness of African countries
 How DFIs collaborate with ECAs
☆ Impact of Ukraine conflict on food security
