It seems so – the oil industry has seriously woken up and OTD has achieved a record number of orders for OTD2018 Bergen with an increase of over 300 percent.

–  We are experiencing frenzied interest in OTD2018 in Bergen, registrations for 2018 are 80 percent higher than 2017 at this point and a whooping 300 percent higher 2016, says Derek Croft, project manager for OTD.

Registrations are coming in at record levels after the successful OTD exhibition in Stavanger, where around 350 exhibiting companies were joined by almost 16,000 visitors over the two day event. At the exhibtion in Stavanger, the general consensus amongst the participants was that the industry was showing strong signs of returning optimism.

–     The record number of registrations for OTD2018 clearly reflects returning optimism in the industry and I am sure this is helped by OTDs’ focus on bringing in new and innovative networking initiatives – this is a major positive for the industry. We hope that this will continue and that we see continued strengthening in the oil industry throughout 2018, says Croft.

OTD is held for the 20th time in 2018. The exhibition is held in Bergen and is 400 exhibitors are expected to participate & the show lasts for two days from on 17. & 18. October
