Visitors to ONS conferences exceeded 20 000

The participants at the seven conference arenas increased by 27% compared to 2016, the statistics from ONS 2018 shows.

A record number of more than 20,000 attendees experienced keynotes, morning talks, lunch battles, sessions and seminars.

– ONS has firmly established itself as a one of the most important international conference arenas for energy related topics. The increase in attendance demonstrates the relevance of the topics covered throughout the four days, says ONS Programme Director, Ingvild Meland.

The conference programme has been more extensive as ever with 620 speakers, compared to 88 speakers in 2010. The programme reached broader audiences with a good mix of industry executives, technical experts, analysts, researchers and environmental advocates.

From the conference stages to breakout sessions, delegates had a multitude of opportunities to learn from industry leaders, connect with people from all areas within the energy sector and the future of energy.
