Annual Offshore Support Journal Conference, Awards & Exhibition

Preparing for recovery and securing financial stability

The largest international conference for the offshore support industry.

2018 will see a transformed OSV industry which has responded to market developments including oil price changes, consolidation, financial restructuring, an oversupplied market and a new political landscape. The new market will be a key focus area in 2018: how companies can prepare themselves financially and technically; how to adjust manpower, manning and training; and where the opportunities will be.

As ever, a highlight of the 2018 event will be the Offshore Support Journal awards and gala dinner. Innovation, operational excellence and achievement will be recognised on the night.

The Offshore Support Journal Conference is the OSV industry’s annual meeting point. Record numbers and strong representation from all sectors of the global community prove it. We look forward to meeting you again in 2018.
