Subsea Valley Press Tour, 12.-16. April 2015

We encourage our partners and members to take advantage of the 2015 Subsea Norway Press Tour, scheduled for April 12 – 16 April in connection with the Subsea Valley Conference.

Leading oil & gas editors and senior reporters have been invited to visit the subsea cluster in southern Norway and to gather information about the main subsea players and their activities. As a mainstay centre of global excellence, Subsea Valley, and its members, have a unique opportunity to showcase innovation, engineering and talent.

This press tour gives Subsea Valley access to senior trade editors and global coverage of specific company news and technology in trade-specific media channels read by your stakeholders and target audiences. 

For journalists, the press tour represents an opportunity to get a first-hand look at Subsea Valley’s dynamic cluster, to establish contact with subsea frontrunners in engineering, operation and services, and to develop a deeper understanding of subsea Norway.

In addition, the journalists will attend the Subsea Valley (SSV) 2015 Conference, a premier event for Norway’s leading oil and gas businesses.


Why participate?

For participating companies, there are varieties of compelling benefits to get on-board;           

  • The press tour is a unique opportunity to build relationships with a handpicked group of professional and highly knowledgeable members of the global trade and business press 
  • To inform these editors about your company’s latest projects, developments and advances in technology
  • To position your company as true experts in your specific subsea niche
  • To feed the press with relevant sector insight and provide insight into your company’s response to wider industry trends.
  • Build the international profile of your company and Subsea Norway.


How does it work?

Each company gets a timeslot of 1 hour with a Q&A session. It is advisable to give the journalists 'news' that hasn't been previously announced to have the best change to secure media coverage. However, if that is not possible, giving the journalists a good insight into your business will still be valuable for building long-term relationships. The session is usually a lively platform for information exchange and meaningful dialogue between executives and journalists.


What media will be represented?

Blue-C has leveraged their extensive press contacts to attract the industry’s leading journalists and editors representing key international publications which may include: Upstream, Upstream Technology, Offshore Engineer, Hart Energy E&P, Ogilvie Publishing, ArcWire, Petroleum Economist, Offshore Industry, IHS Petrodata Global, Maritime Reporter & Engineering News, Pennwell Offshore, G-Captain, amongst others.


What are the costs?
