Subsea Asia 2016 is set to offer more opportunities for UK businesses to establish links in the region than ever before as the event moves to a four-day exhibition running alongside OSEA 2016 International Conference.
Organised by Subsea UK, Subsea Asia 2016 runs from 29 November to 2 December at the Marina Bay Sands Hotel in Singapore.
Subsea Asia provides a platform for suppliers in the subsea industry to meet potential clients and showcase technology and expertise that can meet the demand in Asia – a region which continues to grow despite the lower oil price.
Established for over 40 years, OSEA 2016 features more than 1000 exhibitors from 48 countries and an impressive line-up of 18 international group pavilions. A range of equipment, innovations and services for levelling up capabilities and productivity will be on show at the event which is taking place for the 21st time.
Neil Gordon, chief executive of Subsea UK, said: “As Asia’s energy requirements increase, the requirement for innovative approaches grows to explore increasingly remote and difficult to access areas. Subsea Asia 2016 presents an ideal opportunity in the hub of the Asian oil and gas sector for our members to showcase their expertise to decision makers in the region.
“Partnering with a well-recognised event such as OSEA 2016, gives those attending the opportunity to maximise the value of their time at the conference and expands the potential for generating new opportunities.”
This year’s Subsea Asia includes a dedicated exhibition area and a Subsea Theatre that will host presentations and information sessions. Sessions will cover a range of topics including subsea architecture, pipelines and inspection, repair and maintenance, and is free to attend to allow people to drop in or out throughout each day.
In addition, the international arm of Scotland’s enterprise agencies, SDI and the British Chamber in Singapore will host a market overview session on the 29th to provide advice on approaches and initiatives that are available to UK firms looking to broaden their reach.
On the evening of the 30th, Subsea UK in partnership with Scottish Development International (SDI), EIC and The British Chamber in Singapore with support from the Department of International Trade will co-host a networking reception at Eden House.
