A sector in recovery – is this the new norm?

The next Annual Offshore Support Journal Conference will take place 5-6 February 2020 in London. Each year this event attracts more than 500 delegates and is the premier conference for global offshore support industry. 

Our 2020 programme will deliver  the latest industry data, expert analysis of key trends, fresh case studies, and the critical business information you require for strategic decision making.

Increased vessel utilisation, renewed offshore drilling and signs of a slow down in shale production point to a sector in recovery and an improved outlook for the OSV sector in 2020. Is this a blip or does it denote the new norm? 

Our conference programme will identify the regions and segments that hold the greatest earnings potential in the year ahead; the expected trend in charter rates and the likely direction in crewing and operating costs. 

We will also provide clear direction, examples and insight on current and emergent technologies that will deliver the greatest operational efficiencies and support profitable operations. We’ll analyse the extent Big Data, AI and intelligent technologies can redraw OSV economics. 

Attendees will come away with a clear understanding of how they can best position themselves for the year ahead. 

Join us in 2020 at the premier annual industry event – it is a must-attend for all offshore professionals.
