Offshore Energy Exhibition & Conference Exceeds Expectations

Offshore industry professionals from around the world gathered in Amsterdam on 23 – 24 October for Offshore Energy Exhibition & Conference 2012. The fifth edition of Offshore Energy attracted a record number of 7632 attendees, up 49% from last year.

Offshore Energy 2012 continued on its path of steady growth. The exhibition sold out and welcomed over 400 exhibitors, up 33% from 2011. 204 new exhibitors took part, including international exhibitors coming from a.o. Sweden, Dubai, Italy, United Kingdom, Finland, Russia, United States, and France. Exhibition visitors represented 45 countries.

For this edition we expected around 6,500 attendants and we welcomed over 7632, demonstrating the strong outlook for the offshore oil, gas and wind industries,” said Tessa van Hees, Marketing Manager of Offshore Energy. “Both at the exhibition and at the conference, colleagues shared a sense of common purpose. There is a strong drive to let this industry prosper and add growth to an economy in turmoil.”

This year’s event featured six conference sessions, four industry organization side events and seven tailored sessions. For the first time Offshore Energy also featured an Industry Panel which offered a lively discussion between C-level representatives of operators and contractors as well as industry stakeholders including government, education and young professionals. The conference program attracted 700+ delegates from the entire upstream value chain.

Another new feature this year was the Offshore Energy Career Pavilion, providing a meeting point for those companies in search of new talent and offshore professionals considering a next step in their careers.

The Official Networking Event was attended by over 400 colleagues. The evening was opened by Ruud Zoon, Managing Director of GDF SUEZ Nederland BV and Member of the Offshore Energy Committee of Recommendation. Edward Heerema, founder and president of Allseas, gave a key note speech on the strength of the offshore industry and the key role of entrepreneurship in promoting innovation.
