The Australasian Oil & Gas Exhibition & Conference (AOG) organised by Diversified Exhibitions Australia has sold out its entire exhibitor space five months from the 2011 event.
AOG is all set to break all exhibitor and visitor attendance records.
AOG 2011 will occupy all six pavilions at Perth Convention and Exhibition Centre from 23 February to 25 February.
AOG participants include over 400 local and international exhibitors comprising of oil and gas leaders such as Woodside, ConocoPhillips, Technip, Neptune Marine, FMC Technologies, Aker Solutions, Clough Helix, GE Oil & Gas, Cameron, DOF Subsea and Subsea 7.
Floor space for AOG 2011 has been increased by 20 per cent over 2010 and will house dedicated feature zones focusing on key areas of the industry including subsea technology, drilling and downhole technology, education and research, innovation and health as well as safety and the environment.
Exhibition Director, Bill Hare said that interest in AOG and Western Australia’s petroleum industry was at a new high, thanks in part to major projects such as Gorgon, Browse and Wheatstone.
He adds that AOG has transitioned into a prestigious event for the oil and gas industry. While the exhibitor space was sold out three months faster than 2010, the exhibitor waiting list is already 20 companies strong and growing daily.
AOG has enjoyed remarkable growth since Diversified Exhibitions purchased the event in 2008, attracting unprecedented attendance figures and moving from a biennial to an annual event in 2009.
Highlights of the 2011 AOG event include a Careers Day supported by Woodside, ConocoPhillips, J P Kenny, Curtin University, University of Western Australia and the Society for Underwater Technology in addition to the Subsea Australasia Conference and the AOG Conference featuring a comprehensive program of topical events, seminars and courses.
