Oil & gas heat up with expo pre-registration overflowing

There are set to be more visitors than ever at the 2009 Australasian Oil & Gas Expo in Perth this month, with organisers citing a “substantial increase in visitor pre-registrations for the three-day exhibition,” up an enormous 72 per cent on last time.

The biennial event (which from 2010 will move to an annual exhibition) has recorded the patron increase compared with visitor pre-registrations at this time in 2007 — and exhibition organiser, Diversified Exhibitions, says they are continuing to flow in.

“We are pleased to report that pre-registrations for AOG 2009 are well up on figures for 2007 and are continuing to grow. This clearly demonstrates the industry’s anticipation for the bigger, better event and the growth of the oil and gas industry within Australia,” said AOG exhibition director, Bill Hare.

The expo has changed hands since its 2007 event and Diversified has implemented “a range of strategies to grow the event to be the largest oil and gas exhibition ever held in the southern hemisphere,” said the company.

Diversified has also employed various incentives in a bid to entice industry members to pre-register such as food and beverage vouchers, pre-mailing of registration badges and a lucky door prize valued at $15,000.

“The Australasian Oil and Gas Expo will be the largest of its kind ever held in the southern hemisphere, providing direct access to local and international exhibitors and various opportunities for education — anyone involved in the industry simply can not afford to miss it,” Hare said.

This year AOG will also house a record number of exhibitors, requiring a doubling of previous floor space at the Perth Convention Exhibition Centre. Four hundred companies are scheduled to descend on Perth and will showcase the latest technologies and developments available across the oil and gas spectrum.

International participation at the event has also climbed with more than 80 international exhibitors confirmed for the expo where they will be housed in specific ‘country pavilions’ including USA, UK, and Norway.
