Following our successful virtual events in March, we are delighted to announce that OSJ 2021 will be back in London as a live event on 17-18 November 2021. The annual Gala Dinner and Offshore Support Journal Awards will take place on the evening of 17 November.
There is no doubting that 2020 and the first half of 2021 has been a challenging time for us all! Scarce E&P activity, modest oil prices and Covid-19 have significantly impacted the maritime sector and, as a consequence, the need for OSVs. Our annual programme continues to follow the market closely and will provide a platform for offshore professionals to discuss and debate key drivers influencing the business, plans for survival and growth, new ways of doing business in a changing sector and identifying where future opportunities will come from.
Industry leaders will share their experiences, review the latest industry data, market trends and drivers and arm you with the information needed to ensure solid decision making for future success and growth. Amongst other important topics driving development in the OSV sector, leading experts will demonstrate the benefits of adopting innovative technologies such as digitalisation, IoT, AI and automation, as well as solutions for meeting zero-emission targets and reducing fuel and maintenance costs.
OSJ series of events also taking place in November 2021
Running concurrently on 16 November:
European Dynamic Positioning Conference: Technology innovation. Best practice. Capitalising on demand.
Offshore Wind Journal Conference: Opportunities for vessel owners in a booming industry
OSJ Subsea Conference: Preparing for new business. Adopting new technologies. Improving efficiencies.
