After the announcement of moving Offshore Energy Exhibition & Conference to Amsterdam RAI, Navingo started to form a Committee of Recommendation for this exhibition & conference focused on offshore energy.
For the past three years Offshore Energy took place in Den Helder. Due to the enormous growth in the number of exhibitors and visitors Navingo decided to move to Amsterdam and make it a two-day event on 11 and 12 October 2011.
Navingo’s goal is to develop Offshore Energy into a leading international two-day event with (inter) national audience and exhibitors. Dutch capital Amsterdam is ideal for this purpose and provides an excellent opportunity to position the Netherlands as an international offshore country.
International ambitions need a Committee of Recommendation
To achieve these international goals a Committee of Recommendation is needed to realize international ambitions and the international marketing and media campaign will be intensified. For example, a delegation of Offshore Energy Exhibition and Conference staff will be present at other relevant leading offshore exhibitions in the world. And, in addition, Navingo BV is busy to form and extend a Committee of Recommendation consisting of top leaders from the offshore and energy industries.
In the meantime Mr. Jaap den Ouden, founder and board member of Mercon, Mr. Kommer Damen, Chairman of the Board of the Damen Shipyards Group, Mr. Bram van Mannekes, Secretary-General NOGEPA (Netherlands Oil and Gas Exploration and Production Association), Mr. Hans P. de Boer, Managing Director IRO (The Association of Dutch Suppliers in the Oil and Gas Industry), Mr. Ruud B. Zoon, Managing Director GDF SUEZ E&P Netherlands B.V. and Mr. Martin Bloem, General Director Holland Shipbuilding Association have already committed themselves to the Committee of Recommendation.
The members of this Committee of Recommendation will advise on the further professionalization of the exhibition and the conference. At this moment invitations are still pending for more (inter) national leaders from the offshore industry to take a seat in the Committee of Recommendation.
