Offshore Energy exhibition & conference 2018
22–24 october 2018, amsterdam, the netherlands
The Oil & Gas Year is pleased to deliver a call to action from Offshore Energy Exhibition & Conference (OEEC) in Amsterdam to the global offshore community: “Explore. Inspire. Transform.” This call to action is the OEEC 2018 event theme. It offers guidance to the conference program but the organization also encourages exhibitors and visitors to talk about the theme on the exhibition floor.
With 75 percent of exhibition space already sold, it is clear that Offshore Energy is the place that companies want to return to or become part of. Companies such as MPI Offshore, BASF, Ardent, Seaway Heavy Lifting and DEME have secured their space. As many as 600 key players with activities in oil & gas, offshore wind and marine energy are expected at the event that was visited by around 12,000 offshore professionals representing 90 nationalities last year.
An improved feature on the exhibition floor will be the International Missions Lounge. Following the successful launch in 2017, this Lounge will be able to accommodate the increasing number of international delegations that choose Offshore Energy as their starting point for business. Last year Offshore Energy welcomed delegations from Mexico, Qatar, Iran, Cyprus, Lebanon and Myanmar, among others.
Returning features on the exhibition floor will be the matchmaking area, the Startup Zone, Community Square, the Offshore WIND Expertise Hub and a host of national and international pavilions. New kid on the block is the Rotterdam Offshore Community pavilion. The pavilion unites returning Rotterdam-based companies including the Port of Rotterdam.
With the support of a partly renewed Conference Advisory Board with maximum industry knowledge and representation the preparations for three content packed days are well underway. Offshore Energy 2018 brings four keynotes sessions, on Gas, Oil, Offshore Wind and Marine Energy. The thematic sessions address topics along the lifecycles of oil & gas fields and offshore renewables projects. With sessions focusing on technical content or business intelligence, the conference caters to different target groups of energy professionals.
