Trade association for energy goods launches new Aberdeen conference

The Energy Industries Council (EIC) has today announced that it will hold an Aberdeen conference next year to promote and exhibit companies that supply goods and services to the global energy market.

Planned to begin on the 18 June 2019, the Energy Exports Conference has already partnered with the Oil and Gas Authority (OGA), Scottish Development International, Scottish Enterprise, the Department for International Trade, UK Export Finance, Opportunity North East (ONE) and Oil & Gas UK.

The event also hopes to “accelerate export growth of their products and services” to international markets from the UK supply chain, while allowing new markets in offshore wind or nuclear to develop.

The Energy Exports Conference will run two parallel conference programmes and an exhibition and is expected to attract at least 1,500 UK supply chain delegates and buyers from worldwide energy projects.

Stuart Broadley, EIC CEO, said: “The potential for the UK energy supply chain to export is remarkable, yet so few companies currently are investing in export growth. Recent EIC studies show that companies prefer to grow using other strategies such as innovation, collaboration and diversification, and particularly in the recent downturn less than 10% exported their way out of the crisis. Considering the phenomenal results that exporting can achieve, it’s surprising, with Brexit looming, it’s worrying.

“At the EIC we are committed to supporting businesses to grow and expand into new markets. This major new event, supported by our partners, will bring over US$150bn of global project opportunities to Aberdeen with UK capability estimated at being able to cover between US$80-100bn of these projects’ product and service requirements – an incredible amount.

“There’s a whole world of opportunity out there for the UK supply chain. This event is going to make sure delegates know where the opportunities are for their business and how to go about winning that work, wherever it may be.”
