The world is changing. The industry is changing. The need to innovate and transform are key in remaining relevant and future-proof. This is true during the COVID-19 period, and it will be so after the pandemic. The world did not stop spinning the last year and the energy transition is shifting into higher gear. Companies incorporate sustainability as part of their business strategy. To make right decisions in times of change, it is essential to have a broad view. Information from our own sector and neighbouring markets can help spot business opportunities. Sharing knowledge with the community creates strong and valuable networks and sparks innovation.
It all starts with connecting people. Offshore Energy Exhibition & Conference (OEEC), held on 26 and 27 October 2021 in RAI Amsterdam, looks forward to an edition where people can see each other in real life, not with the help of an internet connection. Because of the vaccination programmes around the globe, some Covid-19 restrictions are lifted and we are returning to a situation where people can go out and meet face-to-face. Off course, OEEC 2021 will make sure that people can connect in a safely way.
But OEEC is not returning to its pre-pandemic ways. ‘Like so many other companies, we learned a lot in recent times. One thing is that the online connection with our audience during the event is very important. That is why OEEC is going to be hybrid this year, both onsite and online’, says Director of Operations Anne Visser. The event will allow exhibitors, visitors, speakers and sponsors to connect both online and offline with matchmaking, live roundtable discussions. The content programme will also be broadcasted live from OEEC.
Connect both online and offline
On the exhibition floor, face-to-face connections are leading. ‘After a long period in which networking and sharing knowledge could only be done online, we see that the industry is longing to meet again in person. OEEC 2021 is grateful to provide an opportunity in which people from the offshore energy and maritime industry can see each other in a safe way.’
The content programme of OEEC 2021 has the title ‘Offshore Energy in a Changing World’. The offshore energy sector is changing. Developments like the energy transition and the need for sustainability are reshaping the industry. These changes also affect the workforce. To shed light on the different facets of this transformation Offshore Energy Exhibition & Conference 2021 presents a content programme in which the energy transition and cross-market collaboration are leading. It will be broadcasted on Offshore-Energy.biz before a live audience.
