Event management support: Organisation and implementation of Green Hydrogen Conferences and Networking Events

The Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH is an international cooperation enterprise for sustainable development with worldwide operations. Its corporate objective is to improve people’s living conditions on a sustainable basis. GIZ has been working in South Africa since 1995. One core area of cooperation is climate and energy.

South Africa has everything necessary to position itself internationally as a producer of green hydrogen (from renewable energies) and derived products, including exceptional potential for wind and solar energy as well as large usable areas. Furthermore, the country has production facilities for synthetic fuels, which for now are still running on coal, as well as the world’s largest deposit of platinum, which is also a component required in the construction of electrolysers and fuel cells. In addition to the possibility for export, there is also considerable potential in its domestic (largely coal-based) industry to reduce carbon dioxide through the use of hydrogen. For workers in the coal industry, the hydrogen economy could mean alternative employment options.

Since 2021, GIZ is implementing the project “Promoting a South African Green Hydrogen Economy” (H2.SA), on behalf of The German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ).

Within the project approach events are essential. They are the best way to establish personal connections with partners and the target group. Furthermore, they are an effective method for the project to build trust and form an emotional connection.

For the efficient and effective conduction of events (incl. conferences, information/ awareness raising events, stakeholder consultations, trainings), the support of an experienced event management agency is indispensable. Therefore, GIZ is seeking support from an event management agency to organise the preparation and implementation of conferences and events including but not limited to conceptual design & planning, general coordination, the arrangement of venue, travel & accommodation, sourcing of external moderators, branding, communication services, event evaluation and general logistical needs for H2/PtX events in South Africa.

GIZ invites eligible and professional companies with local presence in South Africa to participate in this tender. Tender documents are available for downloading below.

Your proposal must be submitted to by 29 September 2023. Please quote reference 83446562 when submitting the documentation. Late submissions will not be accepted.
