Diversified Exhibitions Australia announces that the UK-based EIC (Energy Industries Council) will communicate its China expansion plans when it returns to the Australasian Oil & Gas Exhibition & Conference (AOG) in Perth in 2011.
The leading trade association for UK companies supplying goods and services to the energy industries worldwide, the EIC has again reserved a plot of prime floor space for AOG 2011 to house approximately 30 of the UK’s oil and gas leaders.
CEO of the EIC, Mike Major said the EIC would use the oil and gas exhibition as a platform to outline its new plans for Asia, which include the opening of a new office in China to enable the association’s Singapore office to capitalise on the growing Asian oil and gas industry for the UK supply chain.
Mr Major said the UK pavilion would also showcase a host of innovative products and services designed to deliver greater economic value from Australasia’s oil and gas fields.
According to Mr Major, the Australasian oil and gas market remains highly attractive to UK companies and many EIC members are eager to return to Perth in 2011 following the success of the UK pavilion at AOG 2010.
Speaking of the outcomes from AOG 2010, Mr Major said that the 2010 show provided members of the UK supply chain with excellent exposure to existing and new customers resulting in a host of new business leads and many confirmed orders.
MSCM Ltd, a subsea manufacturer supporting the massive Gorgon Project off the coast of Western Australia is among the companies set to exhibit in the UK pavilion.
MSCM will display a range of cutting edge hydraulic stabplates, hydraulic couplings, hydraulic flying leads, shuttle valves, block and bleed valves as well as gas lift connectors.
Scotland will also be participating at AOG 2011 with the Scottish Development International again reserving a stand within the UK pavilion.
International participation will not be limited to the UK with companies from about 16 countries including contingents from the USA, Norway, China and Italy set to feature among the 450-plus exhibitors.
AOG Exhibition Director, Bill Hare comments that AOG has grown to become a truly global oil and gas exhibition, a fact that is reflected in the participation by several international associations, companies and groups.
AOG 2011 will take place at Perth Convention and Exhibition Centre from 23 February to 25 February, 2011.
