17 Danish companies recently returned from the US after participation at the world's largest offshore exhibition Offshore Technology Conference/OTC in Houston. Here they experienced great demand and success, which surpassed previous years' participation at the Danish Pavilion arranged by Offshore Denmark. Next year's Danish Pavilion at OTC 2014 is in much demand.
|”Continiously, I talked with our Danish exhibitors and this year the feedback has one thing in common; everyone experienced great demand and turnout. This is truly fantastic as Danish companies have indeed significant competences to offer within the global offshore industry," says Mogens Tofte Koch, Man. Dir. Offshore Denmark. |
This year's OTC is the 13th time with Offshore Denmark's participation with a joint Danish pavilion at OTC. Traditionally, the Danish Vice Consul Anna Holliday opened the Danish Pavilion.
The successful participation of the Danish Pavilion at the world's largest offshore exhibition reflects in the official numbers from OTC as almost 105,000 visitors participated during the four days of the event. This reached a 30-year high number of visitors.
|”With this many visitors it is obvious that OTC is ’the place to be’ if you wish to get in contact with the major players in the oil & gas industry. OTC announced that the 2014 exhibition is sold out and the Danish Pavilion also experiences great demand.”, continues Mogens Tofte Koch. |
Even though you did not manage to participate in OTC 2013, Danish offshore companies still have the opportunity to get in contact with major players in the oil and gas industry at other important offshore exhibitions in 2013 in the UK, Norway and the Neterlands. This year, Offshore Denmark arranges joint Danish pavilions at Offshore Europe (OE) 2013 in Aberdeen, Offshore Technology Days (OTD) 2013 in Stavanger and Offshore Energy 2013 in Amsterdam.
”In Norway, 90 fields will be extended up to 2018 and in the UK, 70 % of the primary energy consumption in 2040 is still expected to be covered by oil and gas. The European offshore markets are indeed appealing and in growth. The Danish competences are sought after, so contact and networking are very valuable”, finishes Mogens Tofte Koch.
