PennWell’s position on the evolving Ebola situation

In light of the rapidly evolving Ebola situation in West Africa, PennWell would like to reassure all of its clients involved in the upcoming Offshore West Africa Conference & Exhibition that the company would never intentionally put attendees, exhibitors and other investors in the event in any direct danger.

Currently Nigeria is not one of the West African countries severely hit by the Ebola outbreak, according to the World Health Organisation (WHO), so at this moment in time PennWell is committed to staging Offshore West Africa in January next year.

Furthermore, according to media reports, the WHO expects Nigeria to be declared Ebola-free within days after completing a 42-day period with no new cases (announcement made on 14 October 2014).

However, as alluded to above, this is a rapidly evolving and arguably unprecedented situation so PennWell is monitoring the situation extremely closely and should the official advice with regard to travel to Nigeria change PennWell will immediately be in touch with all of the event’s stakeholders.
