    OTC: Atlantic Canada’s offshore leaders in Houston

    Happening the first week of May every year, The Offshore Technology Conference (OTC) is where energy professionals meet to exchange ideas and opinions to advance scientific and technical knowledge for offshore resources. Leading the way in innovation, creative sustainability, and visionary leadership, this conference and exhibition profiles the most incredible advances of our time.

    Founded in 1969, OTC is held in the heart of Houston, Texas and ranks among the largest 200 trade show held annually in the United States and is among the 10 largest meetings in terms of attendance worldwide. It is the largest “offshore technology” oil and gas event in the world attracting approximately 70,000 professionals who are committed to advancing our energy future.

    OTC is sponsored by 13 industry organizations and societies, who work cooperatively to develop the program each year and the event offers participants the opportunity to expand, globalize, harness international trade opportunities, connect with international buyers, get up to speed on the latest innovations and technology, provide unprecedented networking opportunities and support the business development process overall.

    Unshaken by oil prices

    Unshaken by oil price and tough economic times this group of industry leaders has seen the ups and downs of oil price over the decades. Adversity is seen as an opportunity for resilience and innovation rather than hardship – and it works!
