OTC Event Logos Policy
The Offshore Technology Conference (OTC) logo is a registered service mark and the property of the Offshore Technology Conference. The Arctic Technology Conference, OTC Asia and OTC Brasil logos are service marks and the property of the Offshore Technology Conference.
We encourage exhibitors and sponsors to use the appropriate event logo to promote their participation in the conference. The OTC event logo may be used as described in the event’s logo policy (see side bar) and the Website Links Policy. All other uses of the OTC event logos require the approval of OTC.
The policies are intended to provide guidance on correct logo usage. Please note that use of an OTC event logo does not imply any rights or endorsement by OTC on the part of any user.
Who can use an OTC event logo?
OTC management for official OTC business
OTC management reserves the right to use and grant permission to use all OTC event logos in any way it deems appropriate. OTC management also reserves the right to request that other parties cease usage of the logos in instances where management deems the usage inappropriate, misleading or in violation of any law or regulation.
OTC sponsoring, endorsing and supporting organizations for promotion of OTC's events
The official OTC sponsoring, endorsing and supporting organizations should use the logo in promoting the event on their organizations’ websites, newsletters and other promotional items. See a complete listing of these organizations.
Exhibitors for promotion of their exhibit at the OTC event
Companies and organizations exhibiting at an OTC event may use the appropriate event logo on mailings to customers, printed advertisements and other materials related to their exhibit, provided the logo usage adheres to the event’s logo policy (see side bar) and Website Links Policy. Exhibitors may not use the logo to imply OTC endorsement of any kind.
Media covering OTC events
Media reporting on or writing about OTC’s events may use the appropriate event logo in print or electronic media, provided the logo is used in conjunction with appropriate news coverage and the logo usage adheres to the event’s logo policy (see side bar) and Website Links Policy. If the OTC logo is used on the cover of a publication, a clarifying phrase or descriptor such as “Show Issue” must be next to the logo. Media may not use the logo to imply OTC endorsement nor partnership of any kind.
Associated and/or participating companies and organizations providing a link from their website to an OTC event website
Companies and organizations that are associated with or participating at OTC events may use the logo to provide a link from their website to an OTC event website, provided that such usage complies with event’s logo policy (see side bar) and Website Links Policy.
How should the OTC event logos be used?
The OTC event logos should be used to promote legitimate OTC-related activities, such as to promote an exhibit booth. The OTC logo may be used on the user’s printed materials and/or website provided the logo usage adheres to the event’s logo policy (see side bar) and Website Links Policy.
The logo may not be used in any way that could be reasonably interpreted by OTC management as:
- harmful to the reputation or image of the OTC event
- a false or implied endorsement, sponsorship, approval of or OTC support of the user’s products, services, events or OTC-related activities
- mischaracterization of the relationship between the user and OTC management and/or the event
- a violation of any law, regulation, public policy or the rights of others
