Preparations for the 7th Offshore Energy Exhibition & Conference, set to take place 28-29 29 October at the Amsterdam RAI, are well under way. Navingo BV, which organises the conference, expects more than 10,000 visitors from 60-plus countries. What's more, nearly 500 exhibitors will showcase their wares and capabilities.
The conference, with this year’s cross-cutting theme “The future in the water”, offers a platform for discussing key topics and solutions for the offshore community. Speakers and delegates from all levels representing the entire upstream value chain gather to share knowledge, discuss ideas and to network.
Following are some features of the show:
Offshore Energy will host the exhibition and a conference with technical sessions, C-level panels, master classes and a the Offshore WIND Installation and Maintenance Conference (OWIM). With a growing number of visitors the number of sessions increases as well. There are now seven technical sessions instead of five and four master
classes in total. Last but not least the exhibition floor is now 21,000 m2 compared to 15,000 m2 last year.
The larger exhibition space is made possible with the incorporation of hall 8. This hall, venue of Offshore Energy in 2011 and 2012, will now feature the new Offshore Energy Arena that accommodates the C-level panels. Moreover, this hall will be the gateway to the conference area and home to a proper catering area. With a career pavilion and companies such as Seaway Heavy Lifting, Oceanic Marine Contractors and Groningen Seaports, hall 8 is already a great success.
Technical sessions address a wide range of topics for the offshore community, from the future of North Sea E&P to well plugging and abandonment and from innovations in offshore units to changes in the regulatory framework for offshore service vessels. Offshore Energy also addresses developments in offshore wind, wave and tidal energy. Returning to the program is a special session on the Mexican petroleum industry.
