Becoming a Sponsor

ARDA sponsorship packages allow companies to contribute to the success of our events, whilst supporting the role that ARDA plays across the continent and abroad in defending the interests of the African downstream community.

Sponsorship also offers new ways to engage with key players from the downstream sector, including African oil refiners, importers, terminal operators, major marketers, distributors and regulators.

As a platform for improved communication between African refiners and international marketing, trading, engineering and financial services companies, ARDA sponsorship offers excellent opportunities for international companies to engage with the African downstream and develop opportunities across the continent.

Every year, ARDA organises ARDA Week, an African downstream oil conference, which takes place in Cape Town. In addition to this event, ARDA hosts an annual forum, workgroup meetings and technical seminars that are held throughout Africa. ARDA Members look forward to sponsors’ participation in these events to find solutions to challenges and improve standards of health, operation and efficiency as well as a range of other areas.

ARDA sponsors are companies ranging from major international oil companies, international trading companies, shipping companies, inspectors, local trading companies, international banks and equipment and technology providers to the downstream industry.

See a full list of our sponsors below.

The ARDA offers Platinum, Diamond, Gold and Silver annual sponsorship packages designed to provide sponsor companies with a unique opportunity to meet with industry figures, develop relationships with key players in the African Downstream industry and promote their unique services. Targeted sponsorship opportunities are also available around ARDA WEEK, ARDA Forums, workgroups and other events.
