Europe’s Biggest Subsea Showcase Attracts Strong International Delegation
02 February 2011
Europe's largest subsea event will boast an impressive line-up of international delegates when it opens its doors on 9th February at the Aberdeen Exhibition & Conference Centre to bolster UK subsea export sales.
Consuls, trade and investment advisers and oil and gas company representatives from South America, North America, West Africa, South-east Asia, Russia and Europe will attend Subsea 2011 to meet with UK exhibitors and delegates.
The organisations and individuals have been invited by Subsea UK, in association with UKT&I, to provide a truly international flavour to the event and to meet with UK companies to discuss the opportunities for them in these overseas markets.
Key representatives from UKT&I in India, Indonesia, Lagos, Russia and North America will also be organising appointments and sessions with UK companies throughout the two-day event.
Representatives from companies including BPMigas, Gazprom, Integra, Lukoil, Rosneft, Petrobras and TNK BP are also expected to attend.
Subsea UK chief executive Alistair Birnie said: “As a world-leader, the UK subsea sector already exports around 50% of its total revenues and commands around a third of the global marketshare. However there are many untapped opportunities in existing overseas markets and exciting opportunities in new and emerging markets for all sizes of companies and this is what we aim to highlight next week.
“Responding to feedback from last year's event, Subsea UK has worked hard to increase the international element of Subsea 2011 and to facilitate introductions into new markets for our members, particularly the smaller companies.
“The UK subsea sector has an unrivalled wealth of knowledge, technology and expertise to share with offshore provinces around the world and the interest in attending Subsea 2011 by these delegates is testament to this.”
The two-day exhibition and one-day conference, organised by Subsea UK and sponsored by Shell, is expected to attract more than 2,000 visitors and 100 exhibitors
