February 29 - A dedicated Offshore Wind Zone is to be introduced at this year's Offshore Energy, Exhibition & Conference.

Set to take place from October 23-24, 2012, in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, Offshore Energy is the only annual event in the Netherlands dedicated to offshore energy. It combines an extensive exhibition with a conference programme on the latest developments and markets in the industry, attracting key players from the international offshore, oil & gas, offshore wind and renewable energy sector.

According to the organisers, the offshore wind industry has become an industry in its own right and now delivers an integral part of our global power generation.

Offshore wind has always been an important part of Offshore Energy, and its role will steadily increase as market demands are rising. The Offshore Wind Zone is a clearly demarcated area exclusively for offshore wind supply chain companies. Also, the well known Offshore Wind Route, highlighting offshore wind activities of participating companies that service multiple offshore industries, will be extended with various options to attract the right visitors.

The Offshore Energy event offers multiple conference opportunities, each concentrating on a different yet interlocking theme. The programme is dedicated to giving maximum information from the leading experts about the latest developments in offshore, oil & gas and renewable energy.
