DEVEX is the only technical conference of its size in the UK which is focussed on reservoir discovery, evaluation, development and recovery. Now in its 13th year, the DEVEX Conference attracts some of the best technical presentations from the industry, academia and the regulator, all of which aim to educate and inspire.

In 2016, Mearns & Gill worked with the DEVEX Organising Committee for the first time to deliver all aspects of this 2 day conference including technical sessions, masterclasses, showcases, poster sessions and core presentation, as well as an event aimed at Young Professionals and a Field Trip to Ythan Estuary.

Mearns & Gill has handled all aspects of the conference, from the initial stages of planning and budgeting, right up to the onsite event management.

This has involved liaison with the committee, suppliers, speakers and the venue throughout; designing and supplying all materials and print to promote the conference, and for the conference itself; supporting the committee in promoting partnership/sponsorship opportunities, collating abstracts and scoring to develop the conference programme, registering and communicating with delegates throughout and handling all aspects of the event management onsite.

For the first time, DEVEX offered free places to the first 350 delegates to register online. The response which came back from delegates was overwhelming, with the conference "selling out" in the first morning of places being released.

Mearns & Gill were appointed as event managers for DEVEX 2016 with the aim of creating a buzz around the event, re-energising the content and delivering a cost effective conference in challenging times. How they did this is astonishing. They supported SPE, PESGB and AFES to develop a high callibre technical program that attracted over 600 delegates to the two day conference. SPE, PESGB and AFES are delighted, not only with the results but the with the skill and attention to detail with which Mearns & Gill delivered this complex event management.
