Business risks, regulatory issues, expanding the energy spectrum and global reach will also be major themes.

OTC ranks among the largest annual trade shows in the US. The exhibit is a powerful draw and attendees spend an average of eight hours on the exhibit floor. In addition to individual companies exhibiting at OTC, whole countries also sponsor exhibits.

“This is an amazingly high-tech industry that creates technology that can end up in a NASA space vehicle. Incredible technology is required to drill miles under the ocean, which has been compared technologically to putting a man on the moon,” said Susan Cunningham, 2010 OTC chairwoman.
