Offshore Marine & Workboats Middle East 2015


The challenges and opportunities facing owners, operators and regional governments involved in the offshore marine and workboats sector will be put under the spotlight next month as prospects for new commercial developments and exciting technological innovation in the shipbuilding industry continue to be affected by volatile oil and gas prices.

Returning to Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre (ADNEC) from 5-7 October 2015, the Seatrade Offshore Marine & Workboats Middle East Conference will deliver an in-depth examination of the industry with a series of focused forums, sessions and an executive briefing covering the key issues and areas impacting the industry.

The three-day conference, which takes place every two years in the UAE capital, will open with a keynote forum that will lay bare the current landscape of the industry. “The keynote will set the scene for this year’s event with up-to-the-minute market intelligence data the foundation for the ensuing discussion as our high profile speakers address issues such as market outlook, efficient resource allocation to drive profitability and the prospect for continued growth,” said Emma Howell, Head of Marketing, Middle East, Seatrade.

 Other marine and offshore leaders will have their say at a dedicated forum session on the afternoon on day one, as future growth is impacted by lower oil prices. A panel line-up of influential and respected company leaders will cover game-changing topics including an evaluation of the recent oil price drop on E&P spending, a look at supply and demand drivers, and order book expectations, plus national oil company perspectives.
“The day one forum will be broken down into two power sessions that get right to the heart of the industry’s commercial viability and our panelists, who are all acknowledged experts in their respective fields, will bring their decades’ of experience and market knowledge to bear to present a practical industry overview,” said Howell. 
Shipbuilding technology headlines the morning action on day two of the conference with advances in propulsion technology, such as thruster development and the application of electricity in thruster installations and hybrid power systems, offering multiple benefits.
