Offshore Europe unifies players and markets on the European continent as a platform to share the latest technological news, but also as a network to facilitate business deals and build stronger ties. The international exhibition and conference has a long storied history since its foundation in 1973 and now is one of the first events on the list for suppliers. The exhibition explores innovations on the full spectrum of equipment and solutions for the industry – pipe systems, oil rigs, pipelines, pumps, cranes, drilling, anchors, hydraulic products, lubricants, gas production technology and offshore engineering. This is coupled with the first-rate conference program, which runs alongside the business matchmaking and exhibition. But the focus is not just on new business. There’s also a focus on care for current equipment and facilities in the face of Late Life and Decommissioning Zone, which tackles the complicated problems regarding aging and obsolete installations.
Offshore Europe is the product of Reed Exhibitions in association with the Society of Petroleum Engineers (SPE), the latter of which assists in the creation of the support program. The exhibition and conference follow a biennial schedule and editions fall on odd years. The overall duration is for four days usually during the first half of September. The event recently changed locations and now is based in Aberdeen, Scotland at AECC Aberdeen Exhibition & Conference Centre. Doors are open to professional visitors and working hours are from 09:30 am in the morning until 18:00 pm in the afternoon during the first three days, and until 16:30 pm on the last day. The AECC is centrally located in Aberdeen so you have a good chance that you can walk from your hotel and both the airport and a major train station are fifteen minutes away. You also have bus connections to take advantage of.

This means you can always compare how technologically competitive you are and course correct on a project, when the need arises;
- To learn from the top minds in the industry. We can’t overstate how valuable the content shared at the SPE Conference is. First, it’s the largest free-to-attend conference tailored for the industry specifically. Second, nowhere else will you have access to the leading experts in one place and gain knowledge through educational seminars, workshops and technical sessions;
- To build name recognition and brand value. Naturally, the best thing to expect from being at the exhibition and conference is all the attention. If everyone who is everyone is there, then you’re in the perfect position to gain attention and coverage for new launches and new announcements.
