Offshore Wind Connections 2018 is open for business as it checks in to new Hull venue

By Hull Daily Mail | Posted: 8 Feb 2018

TEAM Humber Marine Alliance’s sixth annual Offshore Wind Connections conference has opened for bookings.

The major event is taking place at the recently opened Doubletree by Hilton Hotel in Hull, after a three year residency at Bridlington Spa.

With the region rapidly becoming the epicentre of the industry with billions of pounds to be invested in onshore and offshore infrastructure, it has become a ‘must attend’ event for all those with a stake or interest in the burgeoning sector. 

Once again Humberbusiness.com is an official media partner, providing live coverage as thought leaders and key industry figures discuss the latest developments in the industry including updates on key projects from developers, government organisations, manufacturers, port operators, vessel owners and operations and maintenance service providers.

This two-day event begins on the evening of April 25 with networking reception with RenewableUK Connect.

The evening will give exhibitors and delegates the opportunity to network in a relaxed atmosphere ahead of the formal conference and exhibition on April 26. 

Last year saw a prediction of quicker than anticipated cost reductions in the industry given, leading to the head-turning subsidy results achieved by Orsted for Hornsea Project Two in the September following. It also welcomed a US delegation fresh from signing a Memorandum of Understanding as ‘sister city status’ between New Bedford and North East Lincolnshire, while Hugh McNeal, chief executive of RenewableUK told how Westminster was well aware of both the political and economical opportunity of wind, and the Humber's leading role.
