City and Shire to have presence at Offshore Northern Seas Conference
19th March 2012
The Offshore Northern Seas (ONS) Conference and Exhibition in Stavanger in August is one of the energy sector’s key events in the industry’s calendar.
With 1,300 companies exhibiting and around 49,000 decision makers from more than 90 countries visiting the show, ONS provides an ideal opportunity to target important customers and suppliers in the oil and gas arena.
It takes place this year from Tuesday, August 28 to Friday, August 31.
Aberdeen City and Aberdeenshire Councils will be jointly exhibiting at ONS to promote the region as a place to live and work and the region's skills, expertise and innovation.
Stand space has been booked within Scottish Development International’s Scottish Pavilion, which has a prominent location at the show.
Applications are being invited from local companies to join both authorities in showcasing regional talents, products and services.
Attending the exhibition will afford companies cost effective, direct access to an international cross section of individuals with significant decision-making and purchasing power.
Many past exhibitors have graduated to hosting their own stands, an indication of the success they have had in attending ONS.
Belinda Miller, Head of Economic Development at Aberdeenshire Council, said: “Norway remains an important export market for many Aberdeen City and Shire companies.
“Exhibiting on our stand is a cost effective way for companies to meet new and existing customers at ONS.”
Aberdeen City Council’s Director for Enterprise, Planning and Infrastructure, Gordon McIntosh, added: “The city of Aberdeen maintains a strong relationship with Stavanger and the energy industry there and our participation in the harbour-side festival, as well as the exhibition, brings additional benefits for the companies who join us on our stand.”
Opportunities also exist to sponsor the Aberdeen City and Shire Pavilion at the ONS Festival, which runs concurrent to the Conference and Exhibition.
