    Offshore Energy Exhibition & Conference 2017 - Celebrating 10 years of Offshore Energy

    Offshore Energy Exhibition & Conference brought together over 550 exhibitors and 12,145 visitors in halls 1, 2 & 5 of Amsterdam RAI. While the number of exhibitors slightly decreased compared to 2016, the visitor number increased. The conference attracted over 1,300 delegates who attended 20 sessions. Next year Offshore Energy Exhibition & Conference takes place on (22), 23 and 24 October 2018, the event organizer said in a press release.

    “This year marked our tenth anniversary and we look back on a great event,” says Annemieke den Otter, who bears overall responsibility for Offshore Energy. “Never before has the gathering of all players in offshore, from oil and gas to offshore wind and marine energy, been more apparent than this year and never before have we attracted so many international visitors.” This year’s theme was ‘Transformation through collaboration’. Topics that dominated the conversation ranged from decommissioning and future gas and wind energy production at the North Sea, to upstream investments in the Middle East, West-Africa, Latin-America and Asia.

    The event brought together industry leaders and (young) professionals during a high quality conference program, at the many networking opportunities and in the exhibition halls. For three days – starting on Monday with the first day of Offshore WIND Conference – Amsterdam was a meeting place for a host of international clients, OEMs, EPC companies and suppliers active in oil and gas exploration and production as well as renewable energy development.
    OEEC 2017 again had a spectacular kick-off with Offshore Energy Opening Gala Dinner and Awards Show on Monday 9 October.  Guests were treated to dinner and drinks and musical interludes by the Junior Jazz Unlimited at the National Maritime Museum in Amsterdam. A special congratulation to the award winners: Dries Lammens  (winner of the Offshore Energy Young Engineer Award), Our Oceans Challenge (winner of the Offshore Energy Public Outreach Award) and Next Ocean  with the Next Ocean Wave Predictor (winner of the Best Innovation in Offshore Energy Award).
    Exhibition

    This year over 550  exhibitors covered halls 1, 2, 5 and Amtrium of the Amsterdam RAI. During the exhibition days it was also possible to attend matchmaking sessions headed by Europe Enterprise Network, from bagpipes to robots, there were some great sights on the exhibition floor. The latest addition to the exhibition floor was the Startup Zone where upcoming talent was able to present themselves and showcase their innovations and products.  Back again was the Offshore WIND Expertise Hub where companies were interviewed on film. These videos will be published on OffshoreWIND.biz in the coming weeks. In the different pavilions, such as Iran, Scotland, Italy, Amsterdam IJmuiden Offshore Ports, North Sea Energy Gateway, Marine Energy and the Holland pavilion, people came together in an energetic environment to meet up and/or network.

    Conference
    The high quality conference program at OEEC contained seven Technical Sessions on topics ranging from Asset Integrity, Global Business Opportunities and Decommissioning. The Launch of the National Platform for Re-use and Decommissioning also took place during the conference. This year’s Industry Panel addressed the transition to a low carbon energy mix. Featured speakers distinguished facts and fiction on both fossil and renewable energy sources, their deployment and what it takes for societies to switch to a new energy system. Within renewables Offshore WIND Conference (OWC) took place with speakers from Dong, Siemens, European Committee of the Regions and Ziton. Marine Energy Event took place on Wednesday 11 October and focused on the Conditions for Commercial Success of the industry with speakers from EMEC, Twin Valleys, Tidal Lagoon BV and Bureau Veritas. Last but not least, several side events took place and young professionals could attend special Master Classes with masters from OOS International and Schlumberger.
