GMT

Shaping new business approaches to thrive in demanding times

 

To complement the launch of our hugely successful webinar week series, Riviera’s 2020 conference programme has moved online, allowing our global communities to continue to connect, network and gather knowledge whilst remaining safe until our live conference programme returns. Networking is a key element of our virtual conferences with ample opportunity to arrange your meetings, keep on top of your daily routine, and still have some personal time.

 

The 2020 Offshore Support Journal Middle East Conference (OSJME) will be delivered online direct to your desk on 9-10 November.

 

Our OSJME Virtual Conference will bring together regional and international players in the OSV sector, providing a unique online platform to review opportunities, address challenges and knowledge share to ensure you and your company are positioned for sustainability and future growth.

 

Despite regional oil and gas companies redefining their E&P strategies in light of recent global events, there will still be a number of major upcoming offshore projects in the ME that will bring commercial opportunities for the equipment and services sector, including the OSV industry.

 

Take this opportunity to get the latest information to help position your company for survival in these challenging times. Align your business strategies with current market requirements and identify the opportunities present in today’s challenging offshore and OSV sector.
