PROFIBUS ROAD SHOW FOR OFFSHORE ASIA 2008 IN MALAYSIA
Apr 29, 2008
Excel Marco, together with PROFIBUS SEA, participated in the Offshore Asia 2008 and showed the lastest technology for process automation using PROFIBUS.
It was a record attendance at the third annual conference and exhibition dedicated to Asia’s offshore oil and gas industry, held on 17-19 March 2008 at Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre (KLCC), Malaysia.
The 2008 event attracted 5,000 participants from 57 countries – a dramatic 120% increase in attendance from the event’s last staging in Kuala Lumpur and a record high for its three-year history. Just under one third of the total attendees visiting the show were from outside Malaysia.
John Royall, Group Vice President and Publisher of Offshore magazine, said, “Clearly, Offshore Asia has become recognized as the industry’s premier offshore event for Asia. We will continue to expand by offering superior technical content in the conference and an exhibit floor that shows leading technology solutions for the Asia offshore industry.”
More than 100 sponsors and exhibitors supported the event. Leading industry operators, suppliers, service providers, contractors and associations were all represented on the packed exhibition floor including: ABB, Acteon, Aker Kvaerner, Bluewater, Cameron, Clough, FMC, GE Oil & Gas, Oil States Industries, and Schlumberger. Crowds of visitors turned out for the exhibition on all three days and meetings were still being conducted when the exhibition finally closed its doors on 19 March.
Offshore Asia 2008, whose theme was “New Growth, Technology and Market Changes,” provided timely insight into the unique challenges of the Asian offshore arena – growth opportunities and changing operating conditions.
