What Sets OTC Apart
OTC is a not-for-profit organization, owned by 13 industry societies. As such, our mission is different from other global events.  You have a choice where to exhibit and invest your marketing dollars.

OTC is unlike commercial organizations and reinvests proceeds back into the oil and gas industry through the 13 societies. Members and other industry professionals benefit from enhanced technical and professional competence because of the societies' investments.

Discover why your company should be a part of this prestigious and the world's largest offshore technical conference.
