In 2019, when things were still normal and we took tradeshows and conferences for granted as a typical part of the comings and goings of business, 60 thousand people from over 100 countries converged on Houston to attend the Offshore Technology Conference (OTC) for its 50th anniversary. The theme for that year, “Going the Distance,” highlighted innovations in technology in digitalization. I find it ironic that less than a year later, “going the distance” for many of us was a commute to our dining rooms where a make-shift office was set up during quarantine.
While we were stuck in our homes, businesses continued, and many forced to transition toward digital much faster than we normally would. We figured out how to reach customers using various online media. We focused on improving remote and online customer service. We made videos to help customers troubleshoot hiccups. We created content that we hoped would fill the gap left by not having face-to-face meetings. It was OK. We made it.
However, I, as well as everyone at Cambridge Viscosity, and likely you, too, are ready to get back to actually seeing our colleagues, business associates, and customers again. Which is why I am thrilled that Cambridge Viscosity is going to OTC this year.
We’re ready to become part of the offshore energy industry’s most influential conference. Tap into markets vital to the offshore energy development. And engage with industry thought leaders, investors, buyers, and entrepreneurs. Those words came directly from the conference video, but they conveyed my feelings well.
This year’s conference is especially exciting for us, as we’ll be launching the new ViscoLab PVT+ for high-temperature, high-pressure applications. With the ability to measure seven parameters, including viscosity, pressure, temperature, temperature-compensated viscosity, pressure-compensated viscosity, density, and shear rate, the new PVT+ viscometer provides the right data in real time, to support operational insight and decision making.
Next week’s blog will be going into more details about the new ViscoLab PVT+. You can register to be notified when the new information is posted by filling out this form:
There is still time to register for OTC. It’s being run as a hybrid model this year, with both in-person and virtual attendance options.
