“SPE Offshore Europe is a catalyst. It’s where conversations start and where new opportunities for growth and recovery begin. 

As the organisers of SPE Offshore Europe, with over 400 global events, Reed Exhibitions has worked tirelessly with our industry peers to create a safe working standard called “Events in the New Normal” for holding events in a COVID-impacted world. 

We understand how vital SPE Offshore Europe is to the lives and businesses in the energy industry we serve. We will continue to go above and beyond to ensure we deliver an event that is both safe but also hugely valuable and energising for our participants. After eighteen long months without an event of this stature, we invite you to take advantage of this opportunity to fortify and grow your organisation.”
