Offshore Energy 2011: Confidence in O&G

Monday, August 15, 2011

As energy demand is rising again, the year 2011 marks a turning point in the oil & gas industry with increased investments in the entire value chain. Offshore Energy in Amsterdam (11 & 12 October 2011), clearly reflects the confidence that governs the industry today. In four years time, the number of participants has quadrupled. For this year's edition, event organizer Navingo is considering an expansion of the hall to 10,000 sq.m.
The original 8,000 sq. m. exhibition floor at Amsterdam RAI, which will host Offshore Energy 2011, has rapidly filled up. In no time at all, over 250 stands were sold - well over 80% of the expected number of stands. Offshore Energy is pleased to welcome back a number of internationally operating leader firms including Heerema Group, Fugro and Damen Shipyards Group. Next to these returning companies, new participants such as SPIE, Van Oord Offshore, Dockwise, MTU, Heinen & Hopman Engineering, SAL Heavy Lift and Huisman have also confirmed their presence.
Compared to the 2010 edition, not only the number of stands but also the average booth space per exhibitor has increased. Given the exhibition forecasts, event organizer Navingo is seriously considering expanding the hall to 10,000 sq. m.
Increased investments come with new challenges.
Increased investments in the industry come with important technical, operational, organizational and environmental challenges. The post Macondo paradigm shift regarding risk management, future operations in remote and even hostile environments and the acute need for a skilled workforce are but some of the challenges the industry faces today. Offshore Energy offers an extensive conference program in which these new challenges will be discussed. Over 50 conference speakers will share their expertise with 500 expected conference delegates.
More information about Offshore Energy, the exhibition, participation, the conference program and registration is available on www.offshore-energy-biz.
