Industry Relevance

ONS has had a long journey to this day as the first ever trade show ran back in 1974 just as oil and gas were discovered in the North Sea as a way to support the newly born industry. Over the course of four decades, this biennial show has evolved into a leading meeting place for international suppliers, operating companies and decision makers. Trade visitors have access to a cutting-edge assortment of solutions and innovations for the entire value chain. Exhibitors showcase plants and machinery for the gas and petroleum industries, exploration technology, offshore technology, ship building, ship’s equipment, storage facilities and storage equipment. Let’s not forget about the highly influential support program with the ONS Conference as its crown jewel.
