In response to the global health challenge posed by Corona Virus, the organizers of Offshore Technology Conference (OTC) have postponed the 2020 edition of the conference to the third quarter of the year. OTC organizers said they are actively working to confirm dates in August or September.
OTC in a statement said that the event earlier slated for May 4-7 was postponed due to “the unprecedented global challenge associated with the current COVID-19 pandemic.”
“The health and safety of our partners, attendees, exhibitors, staff, and community are of the utmost importance, and our hearts go out to all who have been affected.
“Considering the rapidly changing guidance from governments and companies, OTC has chosen to postpone the conference from 4–7 May to the third quarter of 2020. We are actively working to confirm dates in August or September,” it said.
Continuing, it hinted that “In the coming weeks, OTC will be communicating with authors, speakers, exhibitors, and partners to develop the new plans and ensure the conference continues to provide a platform for energy professionals to meet and exchange ideas.
“By postponing rather than canceling OTC, we aim to preserve the significant work of the program committee and authors to prepare for this conference, as well as minimize the economic impact this decision has on businesses in Houston and throughout the industry, explained.
