33547536444 0477fea7ca cThe OTC board of directors have made the decision to cancel the 2020 Offshore Technology Conference amid continued health and travel concerns due to COVID-19 outbreak

The board felt this decision was the most feasible and responsible for staff, exhibitors, partners, attendees, and the Houston community.

“As we navigate these difficult and uncertain times, it is with a heavy heart that the OTC board of directors has determined that it is in our best interest to cancel OTC 2020. Our priority is the health and safety of our attendees and exhibitors, and we have taken federal, state, and local guidelines into account in making our decision,” stated Cindy Yeilding, OTC chairperson.

Yeilding continued, “On behalf of the OTC board of directors, we would like to thank the staff, authors, partners, volunteers, students, teachers, and all involved with OTC for the dedication and hard work they have contributed to the 2020 event. As we face this uncharted territory, we remain confident of OTC’s critical role in the offshore industry’s future and eagerly anticipate a robust OTC 2021.”

The organisers stated that to preserve the significant work of the programme committee and authors, the technical papers and presentations will be made available at a later date on OnePetro.org.

Plans will commence for OTC 2021, bringing leading-edge technical information, the industry’s largest equipment exhibition, and valuable professional contacts from around the world to Houston. The call for papers will open on 28 May 2020 and the event will be held on 3-6 May 2021.
