Digital Conference Debut
We transformed our Subsea Innovation Day into a digital conference this year due to Covid-19 and we have received very positive feedback about the content and format. More than 250 people from 20 nations attended the conference.
Tina Bru, the Minister of Petroleum and Energy, opened our conference.
The Norwegian government is working very hard to support our industry in these very challenging times. I appreciate all your innovation efforts to secure more jobs for the industry, Tina Bru, Minister of Petroleum and Energy
A Record Number of Participants
Participants from close to 20 nations joined the Subsea Innovation Day and counted for about 30 percent of the attendees.
Several of them commented that a digital meeting saves time, cost and is more efficient for most people, which can explain why the number of participants doubled this year, as it also has in many of our webinars.
A number of the participants took the opportunity to join our break-out sessions with the presenters following the plenary presentations.
Speakers from Equinor, Repsol, Lundin, OG21, OGTC, NORWEP, Innovation Norway and The Research Council of Norway were available for questions and for discussing new ideas with the delegates.
We would like to extend our gratitude to all the presenters for adapting and being positive to contributing online, you made the day possible, Jon Hellevang, GCE Ocean Technology
Participants posted their question in the live chat sidebar and gave us their input through our online poll. Many responded that they will focus more on international markets and new industries beyond oil and gas. Especially offshore wind is high on the agenda for many companies.
Learning as We Go
This is our debut with developing a digital conference of this scale. A few attendees reported technical challenges, but most of those were solved swiftly.
With many people from different countries and live meetings, safety must come first, so we have made several measures to prevent security breaches.
We are very happy and grateful for all the positive feedback, especially considering the short time we had to convert- and execute the Subsea Innovation Day as a digital event. We will implement the points for improvements and lessons learnt.
Finally, we would like to take the opportunity to thank Digitalkonferanse.no for their help with creating a great digital concept.
