This event has concluded.

Subsea UK has marked its Aberdeen annual conference and exhibition as the most successful after attracting a record number of visitors reaching over 3,000 at this year’s Subsea 2012 – an increase of 700 on last year.

With 130 exhibitors, Subsea UK’s flagship event was described as a "hive of activity” by attendees who developed new business leads and gained a wide range of new contacts.

Reaching Further, Going Deeper was the key theme of this year’s conference with subsea technological advances, international growth and operator engagement all being tackled throughout the conference sessions.

This year’s event also signalled a growth in overseas visitors, with the help of UKTI, Subsea 2012 attracted delegates from companies such as Integra Supply LLC, TNK-BP, PJSC, GNPC, PEMEX, PDVSA and Petrobras bolstering the global significance of the UK subsea industry.
