Asian Offshore Support Journal Conference is the region’s largest and most influential event focused on the offshore support industry. It is the must-attend annual get-together for shipowners, shipbuilders, charterers and suppliers. This year, its focus will be on the prospects for a market recovery, the financial outlook, industry restructuring, vessel reactivation, improving efficiency to reduce costs and ensuring that crew remain ready for the next uptake in demand.
What’s new for 2017?
Focus group discussions
The audience will be separated into groups – suppliers, shipowners and charterers – to share their views on the lessons learnt during the downturn.
Key executives will discuss what went wrong and how they see their business models transforming to adapt to the changes in the industry. They will explore new ways of dealing with competition, suppliers and share their thoughts on potential consolidation.
In an in-depth interview, a leading owner in the industry will share their experience of surviving the downturn.
Learn how sound leadership enabled OSV owners to win tenders in the Asian region and beyond. Hear success stories and strategic approaches that work in this era of low oil prices.
