While different technological advancements and discoveries continue to shake the human life, the need for solutions to different challenges and insufficiencies has seemed to be available with the presence of innovations and the fruits of science and study. The incessant search for knowledge and ideas has come to be a helpful tool and a significant step in creating a world of sustainable solutions to the needs of societies.
And this is what Offshore Technology (OTC) has started since 1969.
With the goal of creating effective solutions while spearheading discussions to the expanding energy needs around the world, OTC believed that sharing ideas could meet this growing need.
OTC’s coming to its 50th year of success, has developed a community of diverse ideas for a united goal of making strategies and opportunities for oil and gas industry, business, and organizations.

Gradually, as a lot of adversities challenged the conference through the years—from the disruptive technologies making a hole to the offshore industry to the devastating drop of attendees and to the drop oil prices, Offshore Technology Conference has managed to stick with its goal while stepping up in creating a vast force of energy and science enthusiasts.
