Deadline looms for Share Fair’s discount bookings

16 August 2018

Delegates keen to secure early bird bookings for Oil & Gas UK’s Share Fair 2018 which takes place in Aberdeen in October, have until August 24 to make the most of the discount rates on offer.


John McColl, Oil & Gas UK’s Supply Chain Manager, said:

“Share Fair is rightly perceived as a key business development event but along with the changes much of the industry has embraced during the downturn, we’re ensuring it evolves to deliver increased value to all participants, whether buyer or supplier.


“Our priority is 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.”


Neil Sims, Vice President for Expro’s Europe CIS region, said:

“As we move into the next phase of the UKCS, stronger engagement between operators, contractors and the wider supply chain is vital if we are to maximise the potential from our region.  This approach will allow us to deliver value-adding solutions that push the boundaries of innovation, technology and efficiency – something we cannot achieve independently.”


Operators and major contractor companies will be giving presentations at Share Fair but this year they’ll provide the supply chain with detailed information about current and future commercial opportunities from a technical and operational perspective.


To increase the effectiveness of the event’s popular one-to-one business discussions, Oil & & Gas UK is currently working with purchaser companies to market and match their requirements with the most appropriate potential suppliers to ensure that conversations taking place on the day are of real value to both parties.


Share Fair takes place in Aberdeen’s Exhibition and Conference Centre on October 31 and more information about early bird bookings is available on the website
