For the discerning African business and/or industry leader, it is the place to be. The Oil and Gas Masters Ball will constitute a fulcrum of business tourism and investment possibilities as it will attract a gathering of Oil magnates from around Africa as well as potential investors.

Scheduled strategically to serve as a prequel to the Abu Dhabi Formula 1 Grand Prix, the Grand Ball will adopt an Arabian theme where over 700 oil and gas tycoons across Africa will be treated to an experience of Arabian aesthetics, electrifying ambience, decor and entertainment.

In the usual tradition of theming a ball: "The dress code and décor would be decidedly ‘Coming To Abu Dhabi’ - a play on the much-loved movie ‘Coming To America," Osoba explained.

Osoba further assured that the Civic Centre would be transformed into an Arabian paradise, with elements of Formula 1 woven into the whole tapestry. There will be an ultra-modern exhibition centre at the seaside concourse of the venue where partner companies, sponsors and other brands would showcase their products and services to guests.

The Oil and Gas Masters Ball will pave way for other activities lined up by the parent company (Oil and Gas Ball Africa), such as the "Women in Oil and Gas Conference" and the "Oil and Gas Scholars Academy."

In the first edition, part of the proceeds will go into funding scholarship for promising petroleum engineering students from selected Federal universities in Nigeria and these lucky students will be pioneer beneficiaries of the "Oil and Gas Scholars Academy." This is asides the other charitable endeavours that will be executed under the auspices of Oil and Gas Grand Ball Africa.

It also seeks to raise funds to finance humanitarian exploits in Nigerian states where oil and gas activities are carried out. The humanitarian exploits are but not limited to, the award of scholarships, donation of educational materials, cash rewards for outstanding teachers at state-owned schools and vocational training in local government constituencies among others.
