18 ST | September 2018 Another valuable stopping point during the event is the StartUp Zone that showcases early-stage start-ups with good technical ideas that make the offshore energy sector econom- ical, safer, more efficient and more sustainable. Explore. Inspire. Transform. Next to the exhibition that cov- ers an area of around 22,500 sq. m, the conference will feature a vast amount of speakers representing leading players in the offshore en- ergy industry. The conference pres- ents an extensive three-day program consisting of keynotes, thematic sessions, master classes, side events and, of course, Community Square, featuring topical talk-shows and in- formal idea sharing. The theme of this year's show, which doubles as a call-to-action, is "Explore. Inspire. Transform." The theme will be reflected on the ex- hibition floor and form a leading part of the extensive conference program. The program offers a vast array of topics and formats, as Femke Per- lot-Hoogeven, conference manag- er, explains: "Offshore Energy 2018 brings four keynote sessions on gas, oil, offshore wind and marine energy. The nine thematic sessions address topics along the life cycles of oil and gas fields and offshore re- newables projects. With sessions fo- cusing on technical content or busi- ness intelligence, the conference caters to different target groups of energy professionals." As just one example, the themat- ic session "Subsea Cables Systems" will explore concurrent develop- ments that are leading to increased research into subsea power systems and cables: electrification of off- shore oil and gas platforms, subsea field development in oil and gas and the increasing number of off- shore wind farms. This session will present the latest insights and tech- nical challenges of powering off- shore installations and transmitting power to shore and look at where subsea power for oil and gas and wind meet on the seabed. Offshore Energy Awards During the Offshore Energy Opening Gala Dinner, a black-tie event taking place October 22 pri- or to the opening of the exhibition floor, there will be a presentation of three industry awards: Best Inno- vation in Offshore Energy Award, Offshore Energy Young Engineer Award and Offshore Energy Public Outreach Award, the latter aimed at improving public awareness and understanding of a company's, or- ganization's or project team's work, or of the offshore energy industry in general, which is often lacking in such a conservative market. A fascinating mix of leaders from businesses, buyers, investors, engi- neers and other interested parties within the offshore energy sector will have the opportunity to meet each other at Offshore Energy, and it is precisely this balance between supply and demand that brings to- gether a unique assortment of ex- hibitors and visitors to the event each year.
