Following a successful trip to Amsterdam for the 2011 Gastech event, the OilCareers.com event schedule next points us west in the direction of the US, and more specifically to Houston, and one of the biggest events in the Oil & Gas calendar, the Offshore Technology Conference (OTC).
First founded in 1969, the annual event, held at the Reliant Centre, attracts in excess of 65,000 attendees, and has over 2,000 exhibitors representing over 120 countries associated with the Oil & Gas industry.
OTC is the largest conference and exhibition annually in Houston and has generated almost $1.8 billion in income for the city. The event also ranks in the Top 200 in the US as a whole, and is in the Top 10 in terms of attendance.
With this in mind, it is an ideal place for OilCareers to continue to reach new candidates and meet with recruiters in Houston, with a view to making it easier to match job seekers with the right Oil & Gas job.
This is the 3rd year running we’ll be exhibiting at OTC, and it gives our head office team from Aberdeen the ability to support our colleagues in the US, following our office opening in Houston over 12 months ago, a move which has helped our candidate database in the region grow by over 40%.
Eyes Peeled and Ears at the ready
Hopefully it should be pretty clear that OilCareers is the big player in Oil & Gas recruitment.
Our brand creative is displayed on billboards all over the city, a key feature of the US element of our successful global media campaign, and along with high profile radio advertising spots on KUHF and KTRH, alongside sponsorship of the Metro Traffic Report, you can’t missed OilCareers before, during and after OTC if you’re in Houston.
Come and say Hello!
Don’t be shy, if you’re at OTC, come and say Hi to our team on stand 2641-B – we’re part of the UK’s EIC delegation, but don’t be fooled, OilCareers is dedicated to finding you your next role in oil & gas (or your next employee for that matter!), no matter where you are based, or wherever your looking for work in the industry.
We’re more than happy to demo the site to you on the stand, and of course, if you have any recruitment requirements we’re always happy to help!
