About OWIB

Numerous conferences are held with and for the offshore wind industry. Many of them offer excellent opportunities to keep up-to-date with the latest developments. However, the real value-creating processes often take place in the coffee breaks! It is during the breaks that you network and make initial contact with potential business partners.

The OWIB concept brings networking to the forefront.  Ours is a business that moves fast. Everyone is busy and we all have tight schedules. To maximize efficiency, OWIB is an effective event. Over the course of two days, you meet and network with the businesses of your choice  in a structured  and professional way.

And, while you are here, you can catch up on  the latest developments and learn everything you need to optimise your chances of achieving success in a growing offshore wind supply chain.

The OWIB concept

Nurturing and expanding your network is an essential discipline if you want to run a successful business. Conventional networking forums, such as trade fairs, are far from ideal. You often waste time trying to locate the people you want to talk to. OWIB provides a framework for brief personal meetings between you and potential business partners. The event also includes a highly professional conference with presentations by key players in the industry. The OWIB concept is two-fold:

  • To give you an opportunity to meet and network with the businesses/people of your choice at pre-arranged B2B meetings. The meetings  bring businesses together at an initial ntroductory meeting. The meetings last 15 minutes during which time the parties can easily determine whether there is a basis for cooperation. And, should that not be the case, all you will have wasted is 15 minutes.

  • To provide you with the latest knowledge about the offshore wind industry in the shape of presentations from key players in the international offshore wind industry.

 
Participants

OWIB is visited by businesses from all levels in the supply chain. Developers, turbine manufacturers, engineering companies, construction, installation and service companies, etc. Participants are primarily from Europe with some participation expected from other parts of the world too.
