OTC Brasil Expands Exhibition for New Conference in Rio de Janeiro in 2011

Richardson, Texas (28 February 2011) – OTC Brasil is expanding its exhibition space because of strong company interest in participating in the inaugural event, which will address the deepwater offshore sector in Brazil and around the world, scheduled for 4-6 October 2011 in Rio de Janeiro.

The event is being held at Riocentro, and the expansion adds approximately 3,500 square meters of net additional space, bringing the total space to more than 14,450 square meters. Already more than 210 companies representing 17 countries have taken space at OTC Brasil, including long-time OTC exhibitors as well as companies new to OTC. National pavilions from China, USA, Korea, Norway, Denmark, and Finland are confirmed, and more than 50 Brazilian companies are exhibiting.

“The large number of Brazilian companies that are exhibiting at OTC Brasil combined with high interest from around the world have led to this expansion of space. Many exhibitors have said that they feel that OTC Brasil will be a truly global show that offers unique opportunities. We are also getting a great response to the call for papers for the event, which underscores that this technology-focused conference on Brazil and other deepwater regions meets an important industry need,” said Susan Cunningham, 2011 Chairman of the OTC Board of Directors. 

OTC Brasil is a new event that will present technical presentations, plenary sessions, a young professional event and an exhibition, sponsored by the Offshore Technology Conference --one of the most important technical events in the E&P world. The conference  is being developed with the same collaboration of  12 sponsoring societies that has worked so well for OTC, plus four Brazilian supporting organizations. See organizations.

More information about the exhibition and the technical program is available at www.otcbrasil.org, or from the OTC Brasil stand and office at OTC in May.
