OTC: Celebrating 50 Years 1969-2019

6-9 May 2019 • NRG Park • Houston, Texas, USA

Houston’s NRG Park will come alive again this May 6-9 for the annual Offshore Technology Conference (OTC) presented by 13 industry organizations and societies dedicated to offshore resources and environmental matters. The OTC trade show will not only serve as the epicenter where 2,500 companies converge to share ideas, research, and feedback with more than 60,000 attendees across a dozen disciplines, this year also celebrates the 50th anniversary of this offshore energy industry’s flagship event.

From the Technical Program to the University R&D Showcase to the opening evening Golden Anniversary Gala Dinner, the 2019 OTC offers a myriad of events for scientists, engineers, and fluid power professionals interested in developing innovative technologies that optimize the potential of offshore energy sources. The conference may shine a spotlight on the oil and gas sector’s growth, but it’s the knowledge sharing among peers that is the true highlight that keeps exhibitors, researchers, and technology experts from 100 countries returning year after year.

With the multi-day event recognizing the innovations of the last five decades, fluid power professionals will have a chance to engage, observe, and recommend solutions to common and not-so-common challenges experienced throughout the offshore industry. Whether a distinguished veteran or a dedicated student, the OTC offers something for everyone.

One of the most anticipated events is the University R&D Showcase, which provides universities with the opportunity to collaborate and share their current R&D projects with each other and trade show attendees. From Texas A&M University to the University of Tokyo, the brilliant up-and-coming minds a part of this showcase are not to be missed.

For offshore professionals who are ready to tackle more beyond the classroom, OTC attendees can take part in the Rice Alliance Startup Roundup. The in-depth networking and investment event is designed to introduce emerging energy companies seeking investors to potential partnerships and funders searching for the next great idea. Since 2001, the Rice Alliance has held more than 50 Roundups connecting energy startups to more than $5.4 billion in capital funding.

A 50-year celebration couldn’t happen without a special awards ceremony that not only acknowledges the leaders of the industry, but also the exceptional charity, Spindletop Charities, that benefits from the gathering of the premier minds in offshore energy. The OTC Golden Anniversary Gala recognizes the recipients of the 2019 OTC Distinguished Achievement Awards, which include David Baldwin, Carlos Mastrangelo, and the Hebron Offshore Project.
