OMC Ravenna: action for transition

OMC RavennaOver the course of its 30-year history, OMC Med Energy Conference & Exhibition (OMC) has always adapted to the changing international scenarios and today OMC Med Energy is the premier event in the Mediterranean area for all professionals and associations of the energy sector.

Clean, reliable, and economically accessible are the key words of today’s energy industry; showing the international energy industry your highest levels of efficiency while strengthening your market positioning. For this purpose, OMC, which takes place from 23 to 25 May, offers the opportunity to meet investors and new partners, to build network and get new contacts, to get access to decision makers and specialists, to lay the base for future agreements and contracts, to recruit new talents, and to arrange B2B meetings. OMC has grown to become the premier industry gathering in the region and has helped hundreds of companies achieved both growth and success through top level networking, matchmaking and the assessment of the latest drivers impacting the sector.

Together in one place
After rethinking energy leveraging alliances as major driver to achieve a sustainable energy future, it is now time to translate ideas into practical and viable solutions. Sustainable and equitable economic growth for the energy transition calls for new business models to be adopted by the industry globally taking advantage of cross-sector partnerships. OMC is the place to be for energy authorities, industry CEOs, contractors, institutions, and consumers to find out how the Mediterranean Energy Scenario is evolving and to discuss about the best strategies, policies and finance to accomplish the energy transition agenda. From operators and suppliers, policy makers and international companies as well as new start-ups, OMC brings the industry together in one place to meet and do business.

Insights and knowledge transfer
The Mediterranean Energy Scenario and transition prospects after Cop 26 and Cop 27, sector coupling as an example of real alliance amongst industry sectors to accelerate energy transition, the energy vectors of the future, partnerships between producers, and the hard to abate manufacturing industry are just some of the issues OMC will tackle in this year’s extensive conference programme. Over 200 technical and poster presentations will offer insights and knowledge transfer in each technical stream: Operational Excellence, Carbon neutrality, Circular economy, and Technology, providing attendees a platform to share learn experience and know-how.

OMC has helped the oil & gas industry grow and now it provides a hybrid platform where the traditional oil & gas and the sustainable energy sectors meet to set the driving routes and to face the growing global energy demand and sustainability needs. Therefore, the exhibition parallel which will run parallel with the conference programme, will be a showcase for technology and innovation within the entire offshore industry. On the 28,0000m2 of the Palazzo Mauro De André, the 350 international exhibitors can not only showcase their innovations at their booth, but OMC also offers additional opportunities, for example to hold a presentation or give a workshop in the OMC Commercial Presentation Theatre or the OMC Process Equipment Zone.

Innovation Room
The call of Cop27 aims at transforming innovation into applied solutions for the global energy landscape and the new needs emerging around the world. To do so, OMC works closely with solvers, startups, and SMEs on challenges that span across the energy industry and business through the Innovation Room. This is a dedicated arena within the OMC venue where high school students, universities, research centres, start-ups, and experts have the chance to present and compare their perspectives, develop ideas and turn them into projects, devise solutions for the real-world energy challenges. In the Innovation Room several events will be organised such as the Start Up Challenge, the Energy Hackathon, and Call4Ideas Mediterranean Region.
