For more than 40 years ONS has been gathering the international oil and gas industry to network, debate, do business and plan for the future. Last time more than 90 000 people visited the exhibition and conference. We hope to see you in 2016!

ONS attracts high-level executives and politicians as well as specialists and young professionals from all over the world. The ONS exhibition gives you direct access to the most interesting companies in the offshore and overall energy industry.

Travel tips:

Norway is consistently rated one of the more expensive countries in Europe for business travel, so be mindful of this when planning travel budgets. 

For attendees:

Don’t miss the ONS festival, a 3-night extravaganza of music, food, and entertainment. It’s a great way to sample Norwegian culture while networking with fellow energy pros.  

For exhibitors:

Because ONS is held in alternating years from OE it’s common for exhibitors that participate in both shows to store their exhibit properties and repurpose them for both shows. This can be a solid strategy, but be aware that storage and shipping costs between shows can seriously eat into your budget.
