Deadline looms for discount bookings at flagship business development event

8 December 2022

Delegates keen to secure a discounted place at Offshore Energy UK’s Share Fair 2022 on February 2, have until December 16 to make the most of the early bird discount rates on offer at the industry’s foremost business development fair.

Organised with the support of the North Sea Transition Authority (NSTA), Share Fair gives UK offshore energy supply chain companies advance insight of the business opportunities ahead with operators and major contractor companies showcasing their forward work plans for the next couple of years. In turn, these companies broaden their knowledge of the services and products available across the spectrum of suppliers supporting the offshore energy sector.

Katy Heidenreich, OEUK’s Supply Chain and People Director, said:

“Our sector is changing, and those who attend our 2023 Share Fair will gain valuable market intelligence on future projects across a range of energies from oil and gas plus the emerging offshore wind, hydrogen and carbon capture and storage sectors. Our aim as always, is to ensure we deliver value to all participants whether buyer or supplier.”

“We are constantly working on ways to improve access to information and generate better opportunities for early focused engagement so that operators, major contractors and suppliers can find ways to work more effectively together. This is one of the ways we are driving greater competitiveness across the sector to help unlock the full potential of the UK Continental Shelf and deliver energy security while accelerating the transition to low carbon energies.”

Bill Cattanach, NSTA Head of Supply Chain, said:

“Gaining a clear picture of upcoming activity has been a persistent challenge for the supply chain – and Share Fairs are a great way to address this, alongside our Energy Pathfinder portal, which highlights tendering opportunities for North Sea oil, gas and energy transition projects.

“As competition for equipment and skills picks up in the North Sea, it is important that operators and suppliers share their plans early, helping ensure resources are available and projects progress on schedule.”

The Share Fair format comprises presentations from operators and major energy investors on future projects, one- to-one meetings with key decision makers and extensive opportunities for suppliers to book exhibition space.

It takes place in Aberdeen’s P&J Live on February 2 and more information about early bird bookings is available on the website here.
