Offshore & Floating Wind Powering the Energy Transition

Offshore Wind investments in the first half of 2020 totalled $35bn, up 319% year-on-year. In a world of economic uncertainty, Offshore Wind is booming while Floating Wind projects have become successfully operational. The question for all stakeholders, are we geared up for expansion?

Reuters Events: Offshore & Floating Wind Europe Virtual will provide a complete update of where the industry is headed. Over 2 days, attendees will leave with not only a strategic outlook of markets, upcoming tenders, contracts and project updates, but also a technical understanding of how to raise standards throughout the project lifespan.

In the absence of a physical event, virtual networking means sponsors can leave with not only the critical information to support their plans for the years ahead, but also the connections to put these plans into action.

Our mission is to engage every tier of the Offshore and Floating Wind supply chain; ensuring bids are won, projects delivered and fleets optimised. Stay up to date and secure your piece of the pie.
