OTC Marks Largest Show in 28 Years with Interface Consulting in Attendance
Interface Consulting helped break attendance records during Houston’s 41st annual Offshore Technology Conference, May 3 – 6, 2010, held at Reliant Park. The conference drew a crowd of 72,900 attendees to surpass the 2009 total of 67,700. The sold-out exhibition was the largest in 28 years.
Although this was a record year for OTC, the drilling accident in the Gulf of Mexico affected the mood of the event. OTC announced the week before the event that “The Challenges and Rewards in Operating in the World’s Offshore Basins” topical luncheon with Andy Inglis of BP, scheduled for Monday, had been cancelled. Other events covering the four full days were technical sessions on renewable energy sources, including offshore wind and wave energy. OTC’s “Spotlight on New Technology” program highlighted 13 innovative technologies that are already making the industry more effective.
The Offshore Technology Conference is the world’s foremost event for the development of offshore resources in the fields of drilling, exploration, production and environmental protection. OTC is held annually at Reliant Park in Houston. For more information, visit www.otcnet.org.
