Asian Offshore Support<br /> Journal Conference

Asian Offshore Support Journal Conference

Asian Offshore Support Journal conference is the region’s highly revered and most attended event focused on offshore support. The Annual Asian OSJ conference is bringing once again shipowners, shipbuilders, oil and gas operators to discuss how to deal with oversupply, survivability, finding alternative opportunities, cost productivity and efficiency, standardisation, innovation and leadership by Asian shipowners during tough times.

The 2016 Asian Offshore Support Journal Conference was preceded by the Asian Offshore Support Journal Subsea Conference and the Asian Dynamic Positioning Conference, which ran concurrently on 21st September. Running these conferences concurrently provided delegates with greater networking opportunities with senior representatives from across all areas of the Asian offshore support sector, attracting an even wider audience.

You can read our coverage of some of the key talking points from this year's conference on the Offshore Support Journal website here , and see what the key issues and questions raised by delegates were here and on our Facebook page.

Our 2017 conference wil be held on September 20-21 in Singapore, if you would like to hear more about the event or are interested in speaking or exhibiting, please get in touch
