Share Fair 2017
1st November 2017 @ 7:30 am - 5:00 pm
Oil & Gas UK’s Share Fair is an annual, one-day event which aims to improve the quality and quantity of information available to suppliers on the forward activity plans of operators and major contractors.
Better information on future projects benefits both operators and the supply chain as it helps to create an informed and competitive market where there can be more responsive and timely delivery of key equipment, expertise and personnel.
Share Fair also offers the opportunity for presenting companies to identify and share current efficiency challenges facing their businesses, allowing delegates to identify and raise awareness of any potential solutions or mechanisms that could help unlock the full potential of the UKCS.
Presenting operators and contractors also offer dedicated ‘one to one’ sessions where suppliers can make pre-arranged appointments with key subject matter representatives and pursue client purchasing opportunities.
Rail Alliance: Presenters will introduce the rail sector in broad terms, as well as identifying some of the actual and perceived hurdles to trading in the sector along with some of the good news stories in terms of opportunities for grants, subsidies or match-funded opportunities in the innovation arena in the form of competitions run by Innovate UK, the Rail Safety and Standards Board among others.
Additionally, delegates will hear about progress made by the Rail Mentor Scheme (aimed at introducing new blood to the Railway Supply Chain) and the Rail Alliance’s programme of events, highlighting the two main Rail Alliance-run outdoor exhibitions for the rail sector in February and June each year whilst also touching on Innotrans (the mammoth biennial Rail Expo in Berlin 2018).
