On 3 October the Norris Conference Centres in Houston will host the first ever EIC Connect Oil & Gas USA conference and exhibition which will bring together major North American energy companies with local and UK-based supply chain companies to explore how they can work together on projects in the region.

The EIC, the leading trade association for UK companies that supply goods and services to the energy industries worldwide, already runs EIC Connect events in the UK and the UAE. Now, for the first time, it is taking this incredibly successful format to the very heart of the global energy industry: Houston.

Up to 20 leading oil and gas companies such as BP America, Bechtel, and CB&I are set to take part in this high-profile event which will include operator and contractor briefings, an exhibition and a conference programme covering the current and future challenges and opportunities specific to the North and Central America regions.

As well as providing updates on their projects during the briefing sessions, the participating operators and contractors will also engage in private one-to-one meetings with delegates to discuss their supplier requirements, procurement procedures and how they can work together on upcoming developments.

Representatives from The UK Department for International Trade and Scottish Development International will also be presenting during the day, explaining the support they provide to UK companies looking to expand into the North and Central American markets.

The exhibition has already attracted interest from regional procurement specialists who are looking for innovative products and services which can add value to their organisations' projects and programmes.

Commenting on the event, EIC CEO Stuart Broadley said, ‘I am excited about taking our very successful EIC Connect format to the USA for the first time. Our EIC Connect events allow energy supply companies to meet face to face with major operators and contractors to discuss their active projects and opportunities.

‘Given Houston's status as the world's energy capital and global hub for engineering and procurement activity I know this is going to be a very busy and successful day for all involved.'

The event will close with a Best of British networking reception with speakers, delegates, exhibitors and sponsors getting together over drinks and canapes.
