Today Aberdeen Exhibition and Conference Centre (AECC) are pleased to welcome the Offshore Wind and Supply Chain Conference and Exhibition to the Venue for the third year running!
The two-day conference runs this week on Tuesday 29th and Wednesday 30th January 2013 and over 1000 delegates are expected to attend, nearly double the numbers for 2012’s conference. There will be 58 exhibitors from the Offshore Industry showcasing their products in AECC’s Boyd Orr Suite, alongside the conference sessions which will be taking place.
This event provides the perfect opportunity to engage with industry contacts, make new connections and hear about the latest developments. It will feature a mix of discussions, workshops and plenary sessions.
This year the conference will celebrate the huge progress the sector is making, showcasing how Scotland is building on decades of experience in offshore engineering to spark a new energy boom in Scotland.
The event draws on the experience of the oil and gas industry and lessons learnt from offshore wind so far, and promises an experience which will be both exciting and informative.
First Minister, The Rt. Hon Alex Salmond MSP opened the conference, which is free to attend, this morning.
Brian Horsburgh, AECC’s Managing Director, commented: “The Offshore Wind and Supply Chain is growing year on year and we are looking forward to hosting this for the third consecutive year. Visitor numbers are expected to be double what they were in 2012 which confirms the topical content of the event. This event is very appropriate to us, as AECC is the National Energy Exhibition Centre, and the renewables market is something which is becoming increasingly important throughout Scotland.”
