Offshore Energy Exhibition & Conference 2014

By MarEx 2014-05-15 13:58:00

Preparations for the 7th Offshore Energy Exhibition & Conference are well underway. On 28 & 29 October 2014 Amsterdam will again be the place to meet the international offshore community. With visitors from over 60 different countries and a proven track record of steady growth since its foundation in 2008, Offshore Energy is a must attend event for all professionals in the international offshore energy sector. Registration for the two-day event is now available online.

The organization expects to welcome more than 10,000 visitors (9,123 in 2013). Of the 491 exhibitors participating in Offshore Energy 2013, 97% have said that they will definitely or probably participate again in 2014. 80% of the exhibition floor is now sold out and companies such as Fugro, Liebherr, Bluewater Energy Services, Technip-EPG, Van Oord, Keppel Verolme, Boskalis, Ulstein, Heerema Group, IHC and many more have already booked their stand.

Features
Following the concept of the previous shows, 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.

Offshore Energy Conference
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.

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.

Offshore Energy also hosts three C-level panel discussions where captains of industry address strategic challenges. The Industry Panel discusses issues affecting the industry as a whole - focusing
this year on integration and collaboration up and down the value chain, the Drilling & Dollars Panel brings together oil & gas financials and the Human Capital Panel investigates one of the biggest challenges of our time: how to deal with the big crew change.

Offshore WIND Installation & Maintenance Conference (OWIM)
Once again OWIM will be held simultaneously with Offshore Energy Exhibition & Conference. This dedicated offshore wind industry conference addresses the technical, operational, commercial and managerial challenges associated with future industry growth. The fifth annual conference brings you an overview of wind farm developments, presents innovations in wind farm installation and maintenance and discusses the challenges of grid installation.
