    OTC supporter status for IMCA

    News // January 3, 2007

    The International Marine Contractors Association (IMCA) has accepted an invitation to become an official Supporting Organisation of the Offshore Technology Conference (OTC). OTC 07 will be held in Houston, Texas, 30 April-3 May.

    “We are delighted to be official supporters of this key event for the offshore oil and gas industry and look forward to a long and fruitful association with OTC,” said IMCA’s Chief Executive, Hugh Williams. “We will be actively promoting the event to all our member organisations around the world and encouraging them to take part in various aspects of the show. OTC annually showcases so much of what our members are achieving.

    “With an entry deadline of 8 January, one of the first OTC initiatives we will be urging our exhibiting members to respond to is the Spotlight on New Technology awards programme. Companies selected to take part in the programme will receive advance recognition on the OTC website; acknowledgement at a press event during OTC; recognition in a special four-colour, multi-page section of the OTC conference programme; a special emblem of recognition in their company’s booth to designate their selection; and signage on the exhibit floor. They will certainly be well and truly in the spotlight, and this will definitely stand selected companies in very good stead," said Williams.

    “Of course, with the expansion of OTC into the Reliant Stadium providing an additional 45,000 square feet of exhibits, there is opportunity for even more of our 350+ members from over 40 countries to exhibit at OTC 2007.”

    IMCA is also an official supporter of other events taking place in 2007 including Offshore Europe (OE07), MCE Deepwater Development 2007, All-Energy ’07 and China Offshore Summit 2007.

    Information on IMCA is available at and from the Association at 5 Lower Belgrave Street, London SW1W 0NR, UK.  Tel: +44 (0)20 7824 5520; Fax: +44 (0)20 7824 5521; email:
