“It is beyond our greatest expectations. It proves there are many companies out there who are ready to contribute to solve the industry’s technological challenges,” says Bjørn Tore Bjørsvik, Project Manager for the Technical Sessions.
Since the speaker opportunities were announced in December, the interest from companies around the world has materialised through numerous phone calls and e-mails. After the deadline, more than 180 technologies from approximately 100 companies had been submitted.
The companies range from small firms to large industry players, and submissions come from all over the world. Possible technological solutions have been submitted for all the twelve categories.
“We are very pleased with the attention and response the Technical Sessions have received across the entire industry,” Bjørsvik states.
Technical Sessions Committee has their work cut out
The material will now be thoroughly assessed by the Technical Sessions Committee who will choose which technologies that will be part of the programme.
There are approximately 60 speaker slots to be filled by the submissions to Technical Sessions. All presenters will be contacted by 1 May 2016.
Tickets for the Technical Sessions will be made available at a later stage.
