The Subsea Conferences, Events and Exhibitions to Attend in 2020

Joining subsea oil and gas conferences will help you stay abreast of what’s happening in the subsea industry and meet people and potential customers. Not all conferences offer the opportunity to meet people you look up to in business, but there is a greater chance of that when you are in the same room.

It may be that you get the opportunity to exchange a business idea with some other subsea company, or that you connect with someone who can become a mentor. Through social media you get in touch with friends and acquaintances, both from afar and near. But nothing can offset meeting people in real life.

Good subsea conferences facilitate mingling and entering into new relationships – and empowering those you already have. You may want to connect with a potential customer or supplier during lunch or over a coffee cup / cocktail. At a breakout session, you may suddenly be sitting next to your next customer or mentor.

Or, if you do not participate, your worst competitor may be sitting where you could have sat.

Here are the best subsea conferences to learn more about subsea (and oil and gas) in 2020.
