Stewart-Buchanan Gauges had a successful trip exhibiting at our first ever event outside the UK. Held in the first week in October in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, the Offshore Energy 17 conference also marked the first outing of our brand-new exhibition stand.
Offshore Energy 17 introduced us to many new companies that operate within the oil and gas market, including commercial diving companies, plus offshore wind and marine renewable energy firms. Our range of subsea pressure gauges is perfectly suited to the growing offshore renewable energy sector and we took along a range of product samples that attracted a lot of interest. The event introduced us to Dutch companies that we haven’t worked with before and it was fantastic to make so many new contacts.
We had time for some fun too. We introduced our new game, ‘Pressure Panic’ designed specifically for the exhibition. Visitors to our stand were challenged to transport liquid across an onscreen grid through a series of valves and to complete each level before time ran out. The person with the highest score each day won a bottle of single malt whisky. The game proved very popular and prizes are on their way to the skilful winners.
Overall, the Offshore Energy 17 event was a great success, raising our profile with and attracting interest from a new and important audience for us. We’re looking forward to a return visit next year!
