Jul 6, 2015

AOG 2016 organiser Diversified Communications and The Royal Institution of Naval Architects (RINA) are inviting  submissions for a special conference stream on Fixed and Floating Offshore Structures at the AOG Exhibition and Conference (AOG) 2016.

The Call for Speakers for the RINA supported Fixed and Floating Offshore Structures conference stream follows the recent signing of a new partnership agreement between the RINA  and AOG 2016.

In announcing its participation in AOG 2016, the RINA Chief Executive Trevor Blakeley said RINA was  very pleased to be joining with AOG in organising a conference stream  focussing on technical developments in design, construction and operation of structures and marine vessels in the offshore industry. The new stream aims at providing a forum for interaction of all professionals in this area with special emphasis on the Australian specifics, challenges and capabilities.

AOG Event Director at Diversified Communications, Bill Hare, said it was the continued and growing collaboration with respected independent professional associations such as RINA that has helped maintain AOG as one of the leading global oil and gas industry events.

“AOG 2016’s theme is about collaboration and we believe that in down times like this in the oil and gas sector that it is even more important for industry, government and event organisers like ourselves to work together to provide an opportunity for discussions and information sharing that can promote new innovations and opportunities to improve efficiencies,” Mr Hare said.

AOG 2016 Call for Speakers is now open, with AOG seeking applications for presentations addressing the key areas impacting the industry and those that offer new thinking for the Australasian oil and gas sector.

Entering its 35th year, the AOG Exhibition and Conference (AOG) 2016 will be staged at the Perth Convention Exhibition Centre (PCEC) from February 24 to 26, 2016.
