Offshore Technology Conference 2018

Canton Drop Forge at the 2018 Offshore Technology Conference

For over two decades, OTC – the Offshore Technology Conference  – is where the world’s energy professionals meet to exchange ideas and opinions to advance scientific and technical knowledge for offshore resources and environmental matters.

#OTC2018 will prove to be the biggest yet as industry experts from all over the world gather in Houston, TX from April 30th through May 3rd. OTC is the largest global event for the oil and gas sector and features approximately 2,000 exhibitors and attendees from across the globe. Sponsored by 13 industry organizations and societies, 2018 will be a special year as the conference celebrates its 50th anniversary.

Visit us at booth #8364 to see for yourself the difference that closed-die forging can make. One of the aspects of the OTC Show that we’re most excited by is the access it gives attendees to leading-edge technical information, the offshore oil and gas industry’s largest equipment exhibition and show, as well as valuable new professional contacts and ideas. At Canton Drop Forge, we are excited to be presenting because we believe that our components can go up against any in the industry, and we look forward to showing off their durability and capability to experts and specialists from all over the world. Specifically, we’ll be displaying high-pressure components and forging technology meant for oilfield and drilling use. We’ll also be showcasing our custom forging capabilities and certified components for oilfield and gas drilling operations, including lateral, cross, pinion and fluid-end forgings.

Registration and Travel

Though the 2018 Offshore Technology Conference is fast approaching, you and your company can still fill out the registration to attend until April 16th, 2018. As with any other industry trade show convention, though, we recommend not to wait until the last moment to register; if only because you want to be sure that there’ll be a hotel room available for you when you do. #OTC2018 has partnered with many local hotels to provide lodging and accommodations for conference-goers, each one located in the heart of vibrant and exciting downtown Houston.

If you’ve never been to Houston before, you may be surprised by just how much this bustling Southwest city has to offer. You may be suprised that Houston, the 4th-largest city in the United States has world-class dining, arts, hotels, shopping, and nightlife. Take a stroll through the historic Heights, spend the day in museums or head to NASA’s headquarters and check out cool technology and space program equipment. In addition to prominent green spaces, amazing food and restaurants and lively nightlife, Houston also offers a conference-goer and business-friendly vibe that rivals those of much larger cities.

We hope that you’ll join us at #OTC2018! We’re looking forward to all the exhibits and events – but what our team of dedicated forging and industry professionals enjoy most is meeting those passionate about driving offshore drilling technology and learning from them. Remember to stop by booth #8364  to visit our display. Feel free to contact us if you have any questions about the expo or about how you can put our oil and gas forging capabilities to work for your business.
