European Offshore Energy Exhibition set to make waves in 2016

Published:  06 April, 2016

The biennial European Offshore Energy Exhibition, co-located alongside; Air-Tech, Fluid Power & Systems, Plant and Asset Management, and Drives & Controls Exhibitions – is once again set to return to Birmingham’s NEC (Halls 3/3A) from 12-14th April 2016, alongside MACH 2016 and National Electronics Week 2016. Collectively the exhibitions will be the largest manufacturing and engineering events of 2016, and will create an unmissable event.

With only weeks to go until European Offshore Energy Exhibition and the co-location of events running alongside it opens its doors between the 12-14th April 2016, show organiser DFA Media is excited about the prospects for the upcoming events.

European Offshore Energy

European Offshore Energy Exhibition 2016 will once again bring together under one roof, suppliers, manufacturers and service providers for the entire upstream offshore energy marketplace – exploration, production, design, maintenance, upgrade, procurement and energy generation.

European Offshore Energy is filling an important space in the European exhibition calendar, serving the whole upstream offshore energy market at a single event. European Offshore Energy has already attracted support from a number of leading organisations and has established itself as a must-attend biennial event – further bolstered by its already established and highly successful co-located exhibitions.

European Offshore Energy Exhibition in 2016 will again bring the offshore energy market together under one roof; providing visitors with the ideal opportunity to learn about the industry's latest product innovations, solutions and services.


At a time when engineers are under increasing pressure, and time out of the office for attending exhibitions needs to be balanced against heavy workloads, one growing justification is attending a well-balanced and focused seminar programme where gaining further industry knowledge is at the core.

The combination of leading engineering events, with a highly focused free seminar programme, will give visitors a genuine opportunity to keep abreast of the latest industry developments.

The 2016 seminar programme running alongside the co-location of exhibitions, will have a strong emphasis on technology, entrepreneurship, skills, regulations, the environment, and safety.

New for 2016 - exhibition organiser, DFA Media has teamed up with The Industry Entrepreneurship Network (IEN) to put on a series of three panel discussions during the three-day exhibition, which will run alongside DFA Media’s other seminar programme. The three sessions will cover the topics of ‘Bridging the skills gap’ (chaired by Susan Scurlock, CEO, Primary & Secondary Engineer), ‘Financing innovation and entrepreneurship’ (chaired by Lee Hopley, Chief Economist, EEF), and ‘Developing UK innovation and entrepreneurship’, with panels formed from the network’s membership of established entrepreneurs, industrial companies and leading UK trade, science, education and engineering organisations.


In addition the synergy between the co-location of event adds an extra dimension. The co-location running alongside European Offshore Energy Exhibition 2016, includes: Plant & Asset Management 2016, the UK’s premier event for plant & asset management, and maintenance, showcasing the very latest in condition monitoring, CMMS, outsourcing/contract maintenance, energy efficiency, plus much more.

While Fluid Power & Systems 2016, the UK’s only exhibition totally focused on hydraulics, pneumatics, systems and related equipment, has the full support of the British Fluid Power Association (BFPA), and as such continues to be the popular choice for fluid power system manufacturers and distributors.

In addition Air-Tech 2016 is set to highlight current key themes related to the very latest in air compressor and related technology from companies from around the globe. The event is supported by the British Compressed Air Society (BCAS), and is the UK’s only dedicated event for the compressed air and generators market.

Drives & Controls Exhibition will also be opening its doors again, bringing together key suppliers of state-of-the-art equipment representing the multi-tasking culture of today’s design engineer, covering critical areas such as energy efficiency, machine safety, drives, motion control, robotics and automation plus much more, all under one roof.
