Offshore Support Journal Conference, Middle East
Anticipating opportunities in a growing market
We are delighted to return to Dubai with the annual OSJ Middle East conference in its original live format. The event, taking place on 12-13 October, brings together regional and international players in the offshore support vessel (OSV) sector, providing a unique platform to identify new opportunities, tackle challenges and knowledge share to ensure your company is positioned for growth.
According to market analysts, despite plenty of challenges, the Middle East remains a ‘warm bed’ of OSV activity for ongoing projects, with investment from national oil companies providing new opportunities for the offshore support vessel sector.
The 2021 agenda will focus on the key opportunities in the Middle East and Africa regions for future vessel utilisation. Industry experts will share their views and experiences on market consolidation, financing requirements, technology innovations driving vessel optimisation, green fuels for decarbonisation and what the near and short term holds for vessel owners and operators.
