Firms offered share of OTC space

ABERDEEN City and Aberdeenshire councils are offering companies the chance to share their stand space at the world’s most important oil and gas show.

The annual Offshore Technology Conference is being held in the US city of Houston from May 4-7.

The benefits of exhibiting on the stand include a reduced rate on exhibition space and a key position in the Scottish pavilion at OTC.

The offer to exhibit on the Aberdeen City and Shire stand is open to all companies with a local base and which offer products or services in the oil and gas market.

Priority will be given to small and medium enterprises developing their international business and which have not previously had stand space at OTC.

Anyone interested should contact Sarah Hillyear on 01224 814606 or by e-mail at shillyear@aberdeencity.

Munro’s Travel Group, of Aberdeen, has reported that bookings continue to pour in for the trip to OTC.

More than 400 delegates are expected to be on the visit organised by Munro’s and the Press and Journal.

About 230 bookings for rooms have already been taken for the delegation’s HQ hotel, the Hilton Houston Post Oak. The Munro’s/P&J group has an allocation of 350 of the hotel’s 435 rooms for 2009 and all are expected to be snapped up in the next few weeks.

Anyone who would like additional information should contact the Munro’s hotline on 01224 261865.
