AOG Expo breaks records with more punters than ever

The 2010 Australasian Oil and Gas Exhibition and Conference (AOG) was a success on all fronts, reflecting strong interest in the industry off the back of projects such as Gorgon, Browse and Wheatstone, according to the organisers.

“AOG has once again enjoyed great success across all elements and proven that our move to a yearly format for the show was the right decision. This year the event attracted a record numbers of visitors across the three days. Final numbers were 9821 — an increase of 26 per cent on last year,” said Bill Hare, Exhibition Director at Diversified Exhibitions.

“Huge oil and gas projects such as Gorgon, Wheatstone and Browse, as well as the recent announcement of Australia’s biggest gas export deal in Queensland, reflect a booming industry. AOG has proven its relevance in the market with record exhibitor and visitor numbers and a substantial amount of floorspace for 2011 already booked.”

The Subsea Australasia Conference, which was run in conjunction with AOG, also enjoyed outstanding attendance with more than 500 delegates participating — making it one of the largest subsea conferences in the world, the organisers said.

“The Subsea Australasia Conference demonstrated the insatiable hunger for commercial knowledge as Australian companies prepare themselves for what is certain to be a busy future in the subsea and offshore market. With great attendance numbers, an impressive line up of speakers and some really groundbreaking content, the conference played an integral part in the overall success of AOG,” Hare said.

The exhibition enjoyed a total visitor count of 9,821, compared to 7,784 in 2009. First day numbers were up 31 per cent on 2009, and there were 408 exhibition stands representing more than 500 companies — compared to 364 in 2009.
