Young Professional Hub at Offshore Energy

To inspire, inform and offer networking opportunities for the new generation, the Young Professional Hub can be found at Offshore Energy Exhibition & Conference (OEEC).

OEEC takes place 23 and 24 October at the RAI Amsterdam.

Young Professional Hub

The Young Professional Hub is a meeting point on the exhibition floor in Hall 2, specially designed for young professionals from the industry. Here they can meet, learn more about new developments and make their voices heard about what they feel is important in their work environment.

Meet Your Peers

The Meet Your Peers sessions take place on both days of the exhibition from 11:30 am to 12:30 pm. A creative meet & greet between YPs (<35 years old) in the offshore energy industry to expand their network and exchange ideas. Pre-event registration is applicable, on-site registration space is limited.

Master Classes

The Master Classes led by Simon Kennedy (COO, eVision) and Joost Lasschuit (Managing Director, Rolloos) allow for an informal exchange of ideas and experiences. The Master Classes are meant for final year students, starters and young professionals (<6 years work experience, <35 years old, min. Bachelor degree). This year, the focus is on the possibilities of digital technology. Master Classes can be booked when registering as a visitor.

The Well of Fortune Challenge

The Well of Fortune Challenge uncovers ideas on how to make organisations millennial proof. YPs are invited to submit their ideas. What do you expect from your manager, your employer, or your part of the industry? Do you have an idea that will help you develop as a person or as a professional? After Offshore Energy the best idea will be chosen and, after consultation with the idea owner, publicly presented. The winner will receive a prize offered by Krauthammer.

Other items in the program for YPs include the yearly Young IRO Event, Young Professionals in the Spotlight at Community Square and the OE Young Engineer Award. Moreover, visitors that register as students receive a reduced rate for the Offshore Energy Conference sessions.
