The exhibition is the ideal place to research suppliers or the latest technologies available for the Arctic. Don’t miss your chance to meet face-to-face with vendors, discuss products and services, and learn more about the latest offerings. While you’re on the exhibition hall floor you can research solutions, network with colleagues and enjoy refreshment breaks.
Founded in 1969, the Offshore Technology Conference (OTC) is the world’s foremost event for the development of offshore resources in the fields of drilling, exploration, production and environmental protection. The Arctic Technology Conference (ATC) is built upon OTC’s successful multidisciplinary approach, with 14 technical societies and organizations working together to deliver the world’s most comprehensive Arctic event.
On behalf of the Offshore Technology Conference (OTC) Board of Directors, OTC’s sponsoring organizations, and our ATC 2014 Program Committee, it is my honour to invite you to the third OTC Arctic Technology Conference, 10-12 February 2014 in Houston. Our conference features an attractive portfolio of papers in five key technical categories and interesting speakers in the various Plenary, Topical Luncheons and Panel sessions.
ATC 2014 will build upon the success of the previous ATC events with international scientists and engineers sharing their ongoing research and development and execution experiences in the key areas of Geology and Geophysics; Exploration and Production; Physical Environment; Logistics and Marine Transport; and Regulatory, Environment and Social Responsibility. The focus is, of course, applications in the circum-Arctic, while paying respect to the people, the land and the sea of the circumpolar areas.
Supported through OTC’s network of renowned scientific and professional societies, ATC provides a worldwide platform for you to communicate and collaborate with industry colleagues, vendors and academia about challenges and solutions for the arctic regions. With a technical program of over 150 presentations, high quality speakers, networking events and an Arctic-focused exhibition area, ATC 2014 provides opportunities for delegates to enhance their knowledge and share their expertise.
The three day program includes Panel Sessions devoted to Arctic Core Capabilities, Arctic Past Projects, The Global Arctic Market Outlook and worthwhile experiences from Arctic Trailblazers. In addition, technical experts will present papers in their respective disciplines and topical luncheons will offer insights into Arctic themes, both from a technical as well as a socio-economic point of view.
A continuing highlight is the Spotlight on Arctic Technology awards program which recognizes innovative new products and technologies displayed in the exhibition. The first day of ATC concludes with a reception in the Exhibition Hall during which the Spotlight ceremony will take place. This is also another opportunity to network and share your views with anyone who has an interest in the Arctic.
Please register and attend ATC 2014. Your participation will no doubt make this conference a memorable success. Looking forward to welcoming you in February 2014!
