Aberdeenshire Councillor Jill Webster tweeted: At Offshore Europe, quite a buzz about the place & still business to be done.” Other comments included: “Great day at Offshore Europe today catching up with clients and meeting new folk. Lots of exciting innovation going on!”; “Great day networking at Offshore Europe. Many positive interactions established and huge support received”; “Heading from ABZ to Heathrow after a very successful OE15. There’s some positive vibes in the industry despite the oil price.”
Maria Harper, Marketing Manager for show organisers Reed Exhibitions, said: “The week of the show generated in excess of 6,000 interactions by 4,500 unique users on twitter alone, and included conference highlights, exhibitors’ news, product launches and invitations to events, all in real-time.
“The website and app were also widely used throughout the event, with 122,000 visits to the website during the week, and more than 13,000 individuals downloading the app to use the exhibitor directory, conference guide, interactive floor plans and visitor information.”
Organisationally, Reed Exhibitions thinks the show was the smoothest running ever. Vasyl Zhygalo, Senior Exhibition Director for Reed Exhibitions, commented: “We learn lessons from every edition of the event and this year we think the logistics flowed very well. The increased number of shuttle buses running to and from the city centre, offices and hotels proved to be very popular as did the park and ride. The weather was also on our side.”
The next SPE Offshore Europe will be held in Aberdeen from 5-8 September 2017. One of the new features announced for the next event will be the Decommissioning Zone 2017.
