According to the organisers of SOE2010 – a new conference and exhibition scheduled for 4-6 October 2010 in Schiedam, The Netherlands – a changing world, a challenging market and turbulent economic times have proven a powerful motivator for new and exciting innovation. "We have chosen 2010 as the year to launch our new conference and exhibition for the oil, gas and technology industries. We have seen considerable innovations over the past few years in both the local Dutch and international markets and so decided to organise a new and innovative concept for a conference and exhibition", according co organiser Peter van der Sman.
At the beginning of October, Schiedam harbour will be taken over by SOE 2010, Schiedam Offshore Event 2010. Outdoor stands and national pavilions will provide exhibition space to offshore and marine construction companies, downstream engineering, major end users as well as manufacturers and suppliers to this ever-growing sector; whilst on the water, conference boats and water taxis will play host to seminars and workshops, transporting conference delegates around the Port of Rotterdam, the heart of the European petrochemical industry.
"This combination of an on and offshore conference and exhibition is in itself innovative. Exhibitors and visitors alike will have a unique opportunity to exhibit their newest technologies, products and services, exchange ideas and experiences and network with colleagues from all over the world. We are looking forward to a very successful opening event."
