The energy industry's central meeting platform

ONS introduces its trade visitors to the latest and most exciting developments and innovations in the field of offshore energy and oceanography. The international trade fair serves as a platform for procurement and information that receives worldwide attention. The reason is simple – if you want to know where the international offshore engineering industry is headed, this is where you’ll find the answer. This is in no small part due to the combination of high-profile conference program and a commitment to servicing the entire value chain.

ONS – short for Offshore Northern Seas – gives visitors an overview of plants and machinery for the gas and petroleum industries, exploration technology, offshore technology, shipbuilding, ship’s equipment, storage facilities and storage equipment. Going only stronger since its foundation in 1974, ONS is the definitive trend setter on a worldwide scale. One of the big benefits of attending ONS is that you are able to sign yourself up for the matchmaking service, which has in the past generated over 350 B2B meetings with great results.

ONS operates from Stavanger, Norway, where it’s staged on a two-year basis. Editions fall only on even years and last for four days at the end of summer. Usually, ONS is hosted between late August and early September.

Offshore Northern Seas Foundation and Stavanger Forum AS share responsibilities as the event organisers, while the latter of the two is also the official venue for the event. Admission is granted only to trade visitors and opening hours are from 09:30 am mornings until 17:30 pm on the first three days, and until 15:00 pm on closing day.

You’re not to worry about transportation, because there are shuttle buses that go to hotels to pick up trade visitors to Stavanger Forum. You can also use the local bus system free of charge by showing your ONS badge. 

As seen above, juggernauts in the industry have found ONS useful in conducting business and the list goes beyond OMV and INEOS – Shell, Neptune Energy, Lotos, ExxonMobile, Petoro and so many more visit. Why is that? ONS functions as a natural meeting point for professionals within the industry as over 68,000 trade visitors from almost 100 countries attended the exhibition and its supporting program last edition. Compare this to the over 1100 exhibitors – that’s a good ration for you as an exhibitor.

Not only are you in a prime position to meet with buyers with significant purchasing power, but you can also recruit new talent that’s flowing into the industry. The number of new faces rose to 4000 last edition thanks to the inclusion of ONS Young.

ONS 2022

The 2022 edition of ONS took place between August 29th and September 1st, 2022. The event was staged in the Stavanger Forum and did not feature Covid-19 safety measures. This was because the pandemic-related restrictions were lifted. The event attracted 61,098 visitors from 82 countries, more than 1,000 speakers, over 1,000 exhibitors, and 230 media from 20 countries. Three new sub-events were introduced in this edition.

What are people saying?

  • “OMV has a long-term perspective in Norway & the ONS exhibition in Stavanger supports us in profiling and showcasing our activities and plans on the Norwegian Continental Shelf. We have a solid production portfolio and some exciting discoveries with an upside potential. The next years will probably reshape the company. That is why we have already signed up for the next edition of ONS,” said Kurt Michelsen, Communications Manager at OMV;
  • “We wish to take part in ONS because we see it as a great arena to meet important stakeholders and inform about INEOS’ plans to grow its Oil & Gas business. We expect the event to provide both inspiration and good networking opportunities,” said Sebastian Koks Andreassen, CEO, INEOS Oil & Gas Norway.
