UTC is a widely recognised conference, which attracts participants from all parts of the petroleum community.

More than 700 delegates and 50 exhibitors will attend the event in Bergen, Norway on 12 – 14 June 2018. Delegates at UTC are executives, managers, engineers and other strategic and planning personnel related to subsea technology.

The UTC host organisation, the Underwater Technology Foundation (UTF), is a non-commercial foundation aspiring to provide more insight into the subsea industry.

Profits are returned to the subsea industry in terms of grants and funding of research projects.

The most important criteria for the future success of UTC is to keep the high level of delegates to attend the conference.

A relevant and applicable technical programme, as well as arenas for networking and discussions, are our main areas of focus. The sole focus on subsea technology in the exhibition is an important success criterion.

The Program Committee consists of Norwegian and international professionals, from both operators and suppliers, ensuring that the content of the conference is of high quality. Delegates are invited to related events in the exhibition and at other locations in and around Bergen, which are cultural, social or professionally relevant.

The UTC 2018 Exhibition will be located in the Dovregubbens Hall in Grieghallen. Exhibitors will be able to display larger items or constructions as there are next to no weight limitations. The ceiling is about four meters high and the elevator has room for large containers.

The exhibition area is in direct connection to the conference facilities. Lunches, coffee and other refreshments will be served in the exhibition arena.
