Subsea Expo expects more than 3,000 guests | Rigzone

Subsea Expo 2022 will welcome more than 3,000 guests this week when the conference and exhibition returns to Aberdeen, event organizer Global Underwater Hub (GUH) has announced.

The three-day event will see UK and international delegates attend Aberdeen’s P&J Live from 22-24 February with more than 110 exhibiting companies, GUH has announced. The organization noted that Subsea Expo 2022 is the first major in-person industry event since lockdowns imposed by the pandemic.

Subsea Expo 2022 comes two years after more than 6,600 delegates attended the last event, GUH pointed out. This is said to have been one of the largest attendances in the event’s 15-year history and one of the last industry events before lockdown.

“Despite the coronavirus pandemic that continues to restrict international travel, we have seen a great response to registrations for Subsea Expo 2022 and exhibitors from across the subsea supply chain are attending,” said Neil Gordon, managing director of GUH, in a Organization statement.

“This reinforces the industry’s desire to meet in person, reconnect, make new connections and showcase new technologies as we look forward to an incredibly exciting time for the industry,” added Gordon.

“Subsea Expo has always facilitated meaningful industry discussions, valuable connections and cross-industry collaboration through information sharing. These are needed now more than ever,” Gordon continued.

A coronavirus statement published on the Subsea Expo website ahead of GUH’s recent announcement indicated that the Scottish Government would be lifting restrictions on attending indoor public events from January 24, which is why the Subsea Expo would take place as a live event. The GUH also confirmed this on its website last month Subsea Expo returned to Aberdeen in 2022.

Already in August 2021, Subsea UK, the former name of GUH, called on the industry to unite for Subsea Expo 2022, “to explore the oceans of opportunity” in the blue economy. In January 2021, Subsea UK announced this Subsea Expo would no longer take place this year. In November 2020, the organizer announced that the three-day conference and exhibition would be held alongside the annual Subsea Awards dinner has been postponed to May 25-27, 2021due to the restrictions imposed by the coronavirus.

A Baker Hughes spokesman confirmed this last month The 2022 Annual Meeting in Florence, Italy, had been cancelled. Also in January, the organizers of SPE Offshore Europe announced that they had postponed the event.
