Kallman Worldwide’s experience with trade shows is impressive. Over the years they have been involved in nearly 1,000 events in 46 countries – and now they also aim to make an impact at ONS.
“Kallman Worldwide has been involved in the oil and gas industry since 2003, and for more than a decade we’ve been admiring the ONS Foundation’s quality event in Stavanger,” says Kallman Worldwide President and CEO, Tom Kallman.
Ready to shine in new exhibition hall
“Over the years our industry clients have told us of the significance of the Norwegian market and the meaningful business they conduct there. With the opening of the new exhibition hall now available, we were quick to respond and secure space for our US International Pavilion at ONS 2016,” Kallman says.
Kallman Worldwide is ideally situated to alert and recruit small- to medium-sized US firms that may not have been aware of the event, or could otherwise use assistance dealing with all the details involved in participating in an international trade show.
“Our job is to find US firms ready to export, and our calling is to support them all the way to the point of their success in the country,” says Kallman.
Strong number of pavilions for 2016
ONS has seen solid interest in hosting national, regional and topical pavilions for ONS 2016. In 2014 there were a total of 36 pavilions at ONS. Now, over a year before the next show, 34 pavilions have already signed up.
“When companies like Kallman Worldwide, with their experience and knowledge from international congress markets, choose ONS, it is a sign that we are becoming more attractive and relevant to international exhibitors,” says Leif Johan Sevland, President and CEO of ONS.
Tom Kallman and his colleagues intend to bring new and interesting companies to ONS 2016:
“We will seek out, educate, and recruit prospects for ONS 2016 from the large OTC pool, as well as from among all US firms involved in other international trade events in this industry.”
