Working with ICoTA Europe throughout the year on numerous training and networking events, the conference marks the largest event in the not-for-profit organisation’s calendar. Mearns & Gill handles all aspects of the conference from the initial call for abstracts, to sourcing sponsorship and partnership, to event management on the day itself, Mearns & Gill co-ordinated each stage of the process to ensure that the conference would meet its objectives.
ICoTA Europe is a not-for-profit organisation which depends on member and industry support to continue to offer training and networking opportunities for well intervention professionals. Mearns & Gill ensured that the conference was entirely paid for by partnership, sponsorship and ticket sales, while also allowing for a surplus income to be reinvested back into the initiatives ICoTA Europe is so passionate about. This surplus income is used to fund training opportunities for member, non members, young engineers and those seeking industry employment, as well as furthering their aim of improving communication and promoting the value of well intervention solutions within the oil and gas industry.
The Conference was attended by over 200 industry professionals each day, as well as 40 exhibiting companies. The feedback from the event has been extremely positive, with attendees expressing that it was “the best ICoTA conference I have attended” and that it was “well focussed and pitched perfectly for the intervention market.
