The Offshore Technology Conference (OTC) is one of Houston's most anticipated oil and gas events, and is one of the largest conferences of its kind in the world. The 2012 OTC, which runs from April 30 to May 3, features more than 2,500 exhibiting companies, utilizing more than 600,000 square feet of floor space.Despite being only the first day of the show, we've already seen a wide range of industry representatives from a variety of companies; from suppliers, to engineers, to operators, every segment of the oil and gas industry can be found in Houston this week.
This year's OTC welcomes more than 70,000 attendees from roughly 114 countries, truly making it an international gathering. In fact, almost one quarter of the attendees at this year's show are from the international community.
