Coronavirus Thwarts OTC Again

By DJ Slater16 November 2020

The Offshore Technology Conference (OTC) board of directors has postponed its 2021 event, originally scheduled for May 3-6, to Aug. 16-19 because of the ongoing challenges presented by the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

“In the coming weeks, OTC will be communicating with authors, speakers, exhibitors, and partners to develop new in-person and virtual plans and ensure the conference continues to provide a platform for energy professionals to meet and exchange ideas,” according to a news release about the show. Details will be released on the show’s website.

“By postponing OTC to the second half of 2021, we aim to preserve the significant work of the program committee and authors, as well as minimize the economic impact this decision has on businesses in Houston and throughout the industry.”

This isn’t the first time the pandemic has affected OTC. On April 2, the board canceled the 2020 show, originally scheduled to run from May 4-7.
